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.
One romantic author once mentioned how she got all her ideas by watching the open-air café across the street to her house. Every day she would see familiar and new couples stroll into the café, sit across the coffee table, and get lost in their world. There were those who were obviously testing waters and then there were the older couples who came there again and again.
While the purpose of the coffee table is to mainly have an area to place things while you are relaxing on the sofa, it is also decorated with shelves or drawers for storage purposes. Some manufacturers offer tables that come with the height-adjustment feature which allow it to be used for other purposes as well. So select a decent coffee table and make it an integral part of your living room furniture.
