Man’s love with gold is nothing new. It is the reason for countless wars through history and is a love that has withstood the test of time. There is little wonder then that the kings and emperors of the past (and a few of the present) actually filled their homes with decor clad in actual gold. Cheaper modern alternatives offer gold-plated design that capture this timeless look with intricate details, carvings and at times an antique finish that allows the coffee table to age elegantly. If you are shooting for a British Colonial, Victorian, Spanish Colonial, vintage or eclectic look then these might be just the thing for you.

Some homeowners adore the warmth of the yellow metal, but shy away from using it as they feel that it is a touch too loud visually because of all that shine. There is a perfectly acceptable middle ground here as you can opt for coffee tables clad in brass that come with a matte finish. They will still give the room a cozy, inviting ambiance without going overboard. If you have your heart still set on a coffee table with gold-leaf finish, then think of those with a super-sleek and wiry base, which cuts back the amount of sheen on offer.

From tree trunks in gold finish to eclectic pieces that defy geometry and define personal style; getting that unique coffee table in gold is well worth the time and dough. Getting one of these inimitable pieces should be as much about reflecting your personality and taste as it is about the style of the room and the glam infusion that it needs. Maybe there is an old trunk in the attic or an existing coffee table that can be transformed with a golden cloak, instead of splurging on an entirely new piece. With adaptive reuse of materials catching on, there is no reason why you cannot come up with the design of your custom coffee table in gold.
