Genevieve Palomer. Coffee Table. January 13th , 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.
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.
Not all glass tables are clear either. Thanks to new designs you can get glass coffee tables that have etched and textured surfaces making them virtually maintenance free while adding new beauty to a room. It is a fresh new take on a classic piece of living room or great room furniture. In addition to being transparent round top glass tables tend to create a more informal look to the room. This can provide a nice contrast to the more angular furniture in the room creating contrasts in style and tone softening the room just a bit.
Secondly another great variation on the theme is a coffee table with leather stools. These wonderful coffee tables are perfect for providing much needed seating for a busy party or gathering when required and then they can be stored away in such a compact and succinct way. The wood table provides the frame and then the leather stools provide the comfort and luxury that only leather can provide.
