What color and texture should my coffee table be?Living Room: sage walls, chocolate couch, opens up to kitchen with pine walls. what color/texture coffee table should I pick??

My living room has sage walls, dark trim (almost espresso), and a chocolate couch. It opens up to a kitchen with vintage-knotted Ponderosa Pine walls. There is antique wood flooring throughout. I have no idea what type of coffee/end tables to pick out!

Go for a relaxed looking wood table without glass. The glass would look tacky, You could also opt for a large ottoman that doubles as a coffee table.

This is a rather contemporary colour scheme. If you are using vintage pine and antique wood, you might consider continuing the theme for your coffee table - something rustic. Alternatively, you could have a table with a glass top and use green and chocolate accessories. The benefit of glass is to minimise visual space so your area seems bigger.

These both sound like very good ideas, but I have a VERY spastic Boxer pup: Boxer+glass=bad! lol. I am just worried that so much wood would be overpowering....maybe a very dark wood table ect to contrast the natural finish wood on the floors and kitchen walls???

Also what do you guys think about "accent/constrast" colors for decor? Would burnt orange, bronze/copper, or (authentic) turquoise pieces be a risk that pays off if done right -- or just down right tacky? Any better color suggestions to add some interest or kick to sage walls and chocolate couch?
