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.
Industrial style tables: These type of centre tables are the perfect blend of metal and wood and helps provide a factory look to space. Industrial style tables have a sturdy, rough-hewn construction and can pair well with loft style living room or softer surrounding.
The first coffee table is said to have been designed by E. W. Godwin in 1868 and later serialized by William Watt and Collinson and Lock; at 27 inches high, it was a bit lofty compared to our more dwarfish notion of the modern coffee table.
