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.
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.
As said above some glass coffee tables are suited to houses that have a modern décor which can accommodate a table with an elegant smoke glass top for example, supported by modern, X-shaped chrome legs, or a longer table, also made of glass and chrome, with a lower level shelf for storage. Other types have glass tabletops borne on some metal pillars on a coloured base which brings style into a living room. This kind of table is perfect for a modern studio, apartment or house.
