Duval Deniaud. Coffee Table. January 19th , 2018.
The same can be done with an end table which usually goes into the corner between two cushions. A lamp or clock is usually placed on top of it. Most homes tend to do away with it nowadays in order to save space or money but this piece of furniture will actually have extended value once it is seen as a versatile piece. Here are some of the best examples of other uses for these unassuming pieces of solid wood furniture:
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.
As a magazine or photo rack - most variations of the end table would usually come outfitted with drawers or "a second floor" in the form of a shelf between the legs and under the table surface. This space is ideal for stacking magazines newspapers or photo albums. These things then become instantly accessible when any member of the family needs a quick reference to a recipe or a movie review or simply wants to browse through pictures and relieve memories. Then they can also be just as easily kept away - simply drop them back under the table.
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.
