Coffee tables have been around for years. As a matter of fact, these are the staple of western homes. You will find one in every other home in the west. However, some people go for the reclaimed wooden tables instead. Let's talk about different types of them.
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.
No modern home is without a coffee table. Over the years it has become not only a decorative accent, but also a functional piece of furniture. If you still don't have one for your space, it's definitely time to go shopping. But with the many designs to choose from, how do you know what to buy for your home? Read on for some tips.
