Denisse Coste. Coffee Table. January 12th , 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.
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.
