A coffee table, which is also known by the name of cocktail table, is basically a specific style of low long table, normally leveled in height with rest of the sitting arrangements. It is normally kept in front of the sofa or lounge couches and is generally used to support the utensils containing beverages; so defines the name. Books and magazines, mainly coffee table books and other small items that might be used over a cup of coffee like coasters and such are also kept on the coffee table.
Most coffee tables are different, to suit people's individual preferences and tastes. Wooden tables suit most homes as they bring a sense of elegance and comfort to a room whereas glass tables usually only fit into a living room where the décor is modern and minimalist.
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.
