Considering the romantic crowd that throngs the cafes, coffee table romance has become a phrase today. There are so many romantic stories where the young lovers meet over a cup of coffee and the relationship blooms. So what makes coffee table so romantic apart from the coffee? Some say it must be the size. Smaller than usual dinner table, it is easier to lean across a tiny little table and get lost into each other's eyes.
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.
Coffee tables in that café must have borne witness to so many romantic moments. I mean just how many people started their relation over a coffee. "How about a cup of coffee?" is definitely one of the sweetest pickup lines. So much so that book sellers these days use the coffee table to market their books. These are called coffee table reading, small light romantic readings that catch the eye of those who take a moment to stop at the café.
