A great coffee table makes its presence felt while blending in with the theme and style of the room. With a recent increase in industrial style, putting casters on decor has become a bit of a ‘favorite pastime’ for homeowners and designers alike. From kitchen islands to coffee tables, everything is now mobile and adaptable! So jump in on this breezy trend and enjoy the benefits of a remarkable coffee table.

Usher in Reclaimed Style

How about combining two hot trends and using reclaimed and upcycled materials for your new, custom-crafted coffee table on wheels? This really is the best way forward, and as the inspirations below showcase, you can turn everything from tree trunks to vintage trunks collecting dust in your attic into a stunning coffee table. Use your imagination and take a trip to your nearest flea market to find an old decor piece that will fit in with the style of your living room, and then add those casters to transform it completely.

Small old tables, unused factory carts or even old gym lockers can be turned into functional and gorgeous coffee tables with a bit of creativity. Use items that have nostalgic value, instead of just trying to ape a design that you have stumbled across. Even if the mobile coffee table does not match the theme of the room, it still will hold its own as a statement piece that steals the spotlight!

The Rustic Warmth of Wood

Wooden pallets and DIY coffee tables with wheels is a match made in decor heaven! Crafting these ingenious coffee tables is both easy and requires very little skill. Even if you do not have wooden pallets lying around, you can simply use sheets of plywood to craft a snazzy coffee table that will serve you both indoors and on the porch outside. Since you are strapping some wheels on to the coffee table, it can easily be moved around while redecorating, or if you need to free up some space in the living area for a party of four.
