Instead of having to go to a café everytime you want to enjoy a good cup of coffee with friends, make a cozy spot in your home for the purpose only. To start with, you’ll need a sturdy and stylish contemporary coffee table. Pick one with a rich wood finish for the cozy touch. You can also opt for glass or metal top ones to make the ambience more modern. You could even place one in the balcony or on the shady terrace as they are can be moved easily from one place to another.
Despite this singular achievement, the coffee table endures a much maligned existence. Neither grand enough for dining nor precious enough for "occasional" use, it dwells in a lowly state of perpetual service, readily offering up a surface for all manner of clutter (though, rarely, coffee): an artillery of remotes, back issues of the New Yorker, or, most ignobly, smelly feet. And yet, despite its diminished stature, or perhaps because of it.
The low-lying character common to most coffee tables is often attributed to Ottoman garden tea tables, as well as Japanese furnishings, which were very popular in Europe throughout the late 19th century. But it is perhaps today that we best appreciate the coffee table’s low profile; instead of gathering around it to sip potables with our entourage, we are instead afforded an unimpeded, high-definition view of Entourage.
