Genevieve Palomer. Coffee Table. January 22nd , 2018.
A table for coffee traditionally was necessary in the middle of the living room. Home entertaining was a serious affair in the old days because of the ceremony of afternoon tea. When a guest makes a house call he or she must sit in the cushions and must be served tea or coffee with some biscuits or crepes. These will be arranged in a tray with a delicate china service and then served and placed upon the coffee table. Then the afternoon will be whiled away with conversation stories and news.
Because there are so many different varieties of coffee tables to choose from it can become somewhat daunting to try to pick the one that is the perfect fit for your house or individual room. Specifically one question you may be considering is "Which is better: glass or wood".
In the 1950s coffee tables were extremely chic and every house had at least one if not several. Few living rooms were without these tables and often if there was a family room or playroom the sofa grouping there would have one too. While traditional wood tables have always been popular round glass coffee tables really came into their own during this period as modern and contemporary furnishings came back into fashion.
Many small children have a particular fascination for coffee tables spending hours investigating the treasures that they can hold. It is therefore important to think before placing hot drinks glassware china ornaments nuts or anything else that could be a hazard on the surface. Although all of these factors do require some time and consideration the benefits of keeping your child safe far outweigh any time or financial costs involved. Remember: where children are concerned safety is always the number one priority.
