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.
In Europe, the first tables specially designed as coffee tables, these are made in Britain during the late Victorian period.Earlier to the late 18th century, the tables used in Europe in combination with a settle integrated occasional tables, end tables, centre tables, and tea tables. By 1780, the high backed settle was replaced by low back sofas and this took to the development of sofa tables could be used by anyone sitting on the sofa to put down a book or a cup.Coffee tables were designed and these are low tables.
Modern coffee tables are available in various shapes, and each of them has different usage. For example, a round table is perfect for homes that have kids because such table has no sharp corners to bump into and it is perfect for playing indoor games too. Similarly, a long and elongated rectangular coffee table is more practical for serving food and beverages to the guests as it can be accessed easily from all sides.
