Denisse Coste. Coffee Table. January 12th , 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.
Play games in the living room - board games or cards are always excellent means to solicit some bonding time in the household. Bring out the game box gather the family around the table and have a good hour playing UNO or monopoly. Parents no matter how busy they are should try to allocate some time during the weekend to be with their children. Kids who spend time talking or playing with their parents are known to grow up more emotionally secure. Besides that board games are also known to increase children's mental capabilities so they get not only precious bonding time with the family but some serious brain exercise too.
An impromptu workstation - Again more often than not space considerations have converted the erstwhile table for coffee into a table for just about anything. If one of the family members wants to work undisturbed the living room table makes for a reasonably isolated workspace for homework planning or typing on a laptop computer. This is practical especially in apartments or studio flats. The living room can serve the double function of an office or den.
But that's really just a beginning. Because the glass top can really be placed over anything that can serve as a pedestal you can purchase round glass coffee tables that feature large sculptures as the base. If you love the sea and beach you can get tables with a large dolphin or whale as the base. Or you can even get ones with striking pieces of driftwood found on a beach or a sculpture of a coral reef complete with tropical fish darting in and out of it.
