Nowadays, coffee tables made of glass are increasing in popularity. Primarily, this is because they have a classy touch. Again, the versatility of glass furniture makes it more attractive. Often, glass furniture features metal joints. Therefore, they are sturdy. You can find some tables that are made purely of glass, but they can be dangerous, especially if they are made of the glass that is not tempered.
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.
