A coffee table is absolutely must to finish off a home. It is sort of a centerpiece to your sitting room. People tend to gather round coffee tables, making the room feel homey. It is also small enough to be useful but not in the way. These tables can also double up as impromptu game table or writing tables for the evening. It is a quaint little piece of furniture that adds to your décor and your selection should reflect the mood of the general décor.
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.
