Denisse Coste. Coffee Table. January 23rd , 2018.
After enjoying a meal with some guests there is no better way to follow it up than by having brewed coffee and dessert on your new slate coffee table in your cool living room. According to one definition of a coffee table it is a style of long low table placed in front of a sofa to support beverages magazines feet books and other small items. The idiom "Gather round the coffee table" is derived from this furniture piece and its penchant for encouraging hospitality and light conversation.
Tempered glass is a glass that has been treated so that if shattered it splits into small regular shaped cubes that are unlikely to cause injury. However many tables are not made from this kind of glass. Many coffee tables are in fact made from a thicker sheet of ordinary cheaper glass. If this glass shatters it can splinter into long spikes that can easily pierce the body.
That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed. This is a particularly nice feature if you have a lovely or expensive Oriental rug or flooring. The table remains useful but doesn't detract from the true star of the room.
A coffee table makes a good foot rest - more often than not working people want to put their feet up after a tiring day of sitting down or running around for their job related tasks. An end table is usually the same level as the sofa or seat and thus becomes an instant ottoman. Raising the feet or legs in this manner is a great way to allow blood to circulate normally back through the feet and legs. And if this is done while watching TV or sipping a refreshing drink it makes for a total relaxing moment at the end of a long day. Working people can also do this while reading doing some sewing or talking on the phone in order to prevent cramps.
