Amelie Faucheux. Coffee Table. January 22nd , 2018.
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.
A clear space for doing arts and crafts - If the table is not going to be used for displaying items it can be left clear for sessions like doing artwork finishing crafts like scrapbooks puzzles or assembling toys like wooden sets cars or robots. The small surface of a coffee table is large enough for both materials and some elbow room but it is comparatively easier to clean and clear away than the floor or the dining table top. For precaution place some protective sheet or paper to prevent permanent streaks on the wood. The height is also ideal for sitting down sans chair in a comfortable position for hours.
Wooden Coffee Tables. Wooden coffee tables have less safety problems as a rule than glass ones; however there are still hazards that can exist. One of the particular dangers commonly encountered is the problem of small children learning to walk who injure themselves on sharp corners. Many baby and parenting shops and even IKEA now sell corner bumpers; small rounded foam or plastic caps that help to prevent injury. Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase.
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.
