An Insight into Coffee Tables…
Coffee tables as we know in the current day and age derive from two designs. During the Victorian era in Britain, coffee tables were designed in order to sit against low-backed sofas, and acted as a place to set down a book or a tea cup. The evolution of coffee tables is apparent and the long style designed most likely derives from coffee tables which were used in tea garden by the Japanese or Ottoman Empire.
The Positioning and Size of Coffee Tables:
In the current day and age, coffee tables are most commonly found in the centre of a living room, parallel to the sofa. It is also worth bearing in mind that coffee tables are perfectly suitable for use in hallways or other rooms where low-level storage space is required. If you’re looking to purchase a coffee table for your living room, it is important to determine the size of coffee table that you require. It is imperative that you have enough space around the table so that it doesn’t appear too bulky. At the same time you want a coffee table that is at arm’s reach when you require the TV remote or your coffee mug!
Additional Features of Coffee Tables:
Here at Furniture UK, we promote a broad range of coffee tables that offer additional storage space should it be required for items such as magazines and books. Most commonly you will find that coffee tables have a lower shelf which is the same size as the surface of the coffee table. This area is ideal if you’re looking to keep the surface of your coffee table clear, but still wish to keep certain items such as the TV remote at arm’s reach! Other designs of coffee tables include tables that have drawers just below the surface of the coffee table. This extra storage space is ideal for those small items that are cluttering up your living room space.
