Whether it is the streets of Paris, the roadside bistro in England, or the terrace café in Vienna, coffee tables and romance is somehow connected at a DNA level. It's perhaps coffee itself. It is said that Johann Sebastian Bach had once described coffee as "lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine!". There cannot be a more romantic description of a drink than that.

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.

A coffee table, which is also known by the name of cocktail table, is basically a specific style of low long table, normally leveled in height with rest of the sitting arrangements. It is normally kept in front of the sofa or lounge couches and is generally used to support the utensils containing beverages; so defines the name. Books and magazines, mainly coffee table books and other small items that might be used over a cup of coffee like coasters and such are also kept on the coffee table.

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.

Generally, the height should be same or a little bit higher than the sofa seats it will complement. Seat down on your sofa and measure the height from the floor to the top of your bended knee. These tables should be either that high or an inch more or less, if you can't manage that. Too high and it will become an eye sore, too low and your guests will tumble out of the seat to use it.
