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.
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.
