Besides the fireplace, the focal point of a living room is the coffee table. This type of living room tables descended from the European tea table, they usually sit before a sofa and are used to hold knick knacks and magazines as well as coffee cups, and can be made of elaborately carved wood, Plexiglas, glass and chrome, or wicker and bamboo.
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.
Some people prefer to take a snap of the room where the coffee table is to be placed, to compare with the selected items in the shop. With mobile cameras in abandon these days, it is quite an easy thing to do. Moreover, it happens often that you feel you just have to have this coffee table but not sure if it is the right shade of the color to match your sofa etc. Beats rushing home with a picture of the table instead.
