Whether you're looking for traditional coffee tables or handcrafted coffee tables, we've got you covered with hundreds and hundreds of choices. When we found the Guildmaster Shadow Box Coffee Table, we immediately thought of the seashore. Why? Maybe it's a winter blues thing, but can't you just see this shadow box filled with shells and pieces of driftwood?
Of course, with its hand-finished antique white finish and nail-head trim, this coffee table would also be a beautiful addition to a farmhouse or shabby chic cottage style living room. But for us, it's all about the coastal cottage feel with a glass covered shadow box lined with woven grass just waiting for tiny treasures washed onto shore by ocean waves.
