The first coffee tables, designed and called by this name, evolved in Europe, most probably in Britain, during the Victorian era. Before the 18th century, the tables that were being used in addition with the settle are the occasional tables, end tables, tea tables and centre tables. By the year 1780, the high-back settles were replaced by low height sofas, and thus came the need for a lower table. And this led to the development of the sofa tables, which were placed near the sofa to be used to put down the cup or the books.
It is also said that E.W.Godwin designed a table in 1868 and it was made in large number by William Watt, and it was the initial coffee table, though very low in height. Also, this idea was first introduced by the Ottoman Empire, that this furniture will be styled as low tables, based on the fact that garden tea tables were also of the same pattern. Also it should be noted that Anglo-Japanese style was quite popular in Britain during the late 19th century, and these might also have played a factor. During the late 19th century, it started becoming popular due to revivalism. So, it is quite easy to find Georgian or Louis XVI styled coffee tables but not anything before them.
Storage coffee tables are also very functional coffee tables. They come in a wide array of styles, colors, and designs. You can find storage tables to fit into almost any of your living spaces. There are several types of storage tables to choose from: Small ottomans, Large ottomans, Leather ottomans, Wooden storage coffee tables with drawers, Steamer trunk coffee tables, Trunk coffee tables, and more.
