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.

The coffee table inhabits the most coveted real estate in the home, strategically placed between the sofa and the television, the Constantinople of the geopolitical living room.
