As said above some glass coffee tables are suited to houses that have a modern décor which can accommodate a table with an elegant smoke glass top for example, supported by modern, X-shaped chrome legs, or a longer table, also made of glass and chrome, with a lower level shelf for storage. Other types have glass tabletops borne on some metal pillars on a coloured base which brings style into a living room. This kind of table is perfect for a modern studio, apartment or house.
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.
Don't rely on your eyes to measure tables. Being low, they often look smaller then they are, especially glass topped coffee tables look smaller due to their see-through tops. You can't haul home a piece of furniture to find it's just a bit too high or wide to fit your living space.
