They can be low which are perfect for being placed in front of a suite of furniture, or they can be of a older Victorian model which is that they are higher round table tops, on a narrow support which would be placed bedside a sofa or between some reclining chairs.
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.
Wicker or rattan is an ideal choice for patio furniture. However, they are also used for home furniture because of their tranquility. The top of wicker furniture is smooth. So, the things put on the table won't topple over. The color of wicker makes it different from the rest of the furniture. Often, these tables are placed in gazebos or open spaces.
