Perhaps it is the setting that makes coffee the drink of romance. We all have heard how romantic it is to gaze into each other eye. What better way to do it then over coffee tables. Even commercial coffee shops have their romantic moments. But we are talking about the open air cafés that make Europe the most romantic place to be.
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
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.
