But all this television watching doesn’t mean that today’s coffee table owner is illiterate. In fact, many have made a heavy investment in coffee table books. These tomes—large in format, heavy on pictures, light on written content—afford a breezy foray into cultural matters and can be digested intermittently. Some of the more edifying books may even be worth more than the table. Which is why we asked Angelika Taschen to tell us which, if any, of our selection of coffee tables would be fit to hold one of her invaluable volumes.
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.
Analyse your living room theme first, and choose something that can blend with it perfectly. For example, a coffee table that has ornate designs will look odd in a modern styled room where other furniture units have simple and sleek designs.
