Mission: coffee table. Finding THE perfect place to artfully create tablescapes that also fits the style of your living room requires a bit of a search. I scoured High Point, looking high and low for interesting coffee tables to suit a variety of interiors. Many of the new additions with a wide appeal stemmed off the classic Parsons table silhouette. Lucite, brass, raffia, faux finishes and metal add a bit of spark to seating areas that require a spot for a drink, your favorite books, flowers and a hurricane or two.

Based on covered vintage style, the Kemble Interiors for Henredon collection worked brass accents into many of their pieces. A bamboo textured frame supports a glass-topped square coffee table, great for large areas.

Lucite like this is swoon-worthy. Thick lucite column legs with brass end caps and trim on the neo-vintage coffee table from Kemble Interiors for Henredon was a showstopper.

A second shelf provides extra display capabilities in Arteriors elegant-legged hammered metal coffee table.

Worlds Away mixes materials on the Conrad, a lacquer and gold leaf coffee table with a modified Greek key metal base.

A clean classic shape, the waterfall table never fails in appeal, since it's chameleon-line ability allows it to suit many environments. This Raffia Cocktail Table from Pearson is covered in light raffia, which provides the addition of texture.

Another grass cloth-covered classic, this time from Century. Simple lines are enhanced with a curving decorative bracket that works its way around the piece. Aged brass ferrules ground the leg.

An L-shaped leg gives linear impact to Pearson's  ivory faux Shagreen Cocktail Table. The scale is just right.

Subtle painted gold detailing adds charm to Century's Alexa, a low, 2-tiered coffee table with removable tray top.

A stepped base influenced by a Chinese antique table, the Low Cocktail Table covered in vellum at Mr. and Mrs. Howard for Sherrill adds a neutral element.

Faux bois can tend to look heavy, but that isn't the case in Mr. Brown's new white painted metal coffee table. Intertwined branches have a lightness to them that is made modern by the white finish and a smoky mirror top.

The finish on this table is what makes it really wonderful. The Paris Cocktail Table from Mr. and Mrs. Howard for Sherrill in a swirly cream and brown dragged finish elevates it giving the surface interest.

Festoni also launched an acrylic coffee table. Mixing clear and black plastic, a splayed leg and low profile bring flair to seating areas.

Noir uses repurposed wood in this low, rustic light wood table with zig-zag base. It has heft to it that would look great in a modern barn setting.

Trimmed in white, Bernhardt's large rectangular Bexley Coffee Table has modern lines and graphic punch.

A curved leg reminiscent of classic Chinoiserie pieces on Bungalow 5's Higashi Coffee Table gives it a subtle sophistication. Brass accent cut-outs add a bit of sparkle.

Baker debuted a new traditional collection from Michael S. Smith at High Point. Richly carved details in the Peking Cocktail Table accompany a decorative Chinoiserie scenic on the top. True to the original antique it was based on, Baker has duplicated every intricate detail on the carved textural fretwork border that continues from the border to the leg.

Century's upholstered coffee table with tapered, curved leg and movable, raised center portion allows for a perch and a spot for a drink.
