The coffee table has become customary in our living rooms, and, although we all have one in our home, few know that coffee tables, as the Ottoman Empire, originate in Turkey. If Ottoman largely retained its form, then the coffee table has evolved over time. It nearly became a completely different piece of furniture. Today, a coffee table is no longer subject to strict utility and it has become almost an art piece, which is often the focal point of the room. The coffee table was neglected in favor of sofas, armchairs and chairs for a long time. But right now, all professional designers acknowledge their importance. Theyve got reasons: a coffee table is more versatile and easier to combine than any other piece of furniture from the living room. Basically, it sets the tone for the room. If you prefer to draw attention to the couch, then you would choose a simple but appropriate table. However, coffee table styles and colours should follow the ambiance of the entire room.
There you are. Sitting in a living room or waiting room with nothing to do. And there it is. Sitting on one of the coffee tables is that voluminous book youve seen so many times before, filled with lovely photos of classic cars, the Grand Canyon or the moon. You cant help yourself. You have to look at it. Blame David R. Bower for your weakness for coffee table books. When David was the Executive Director of the Sierra Club, he must have seen an opportunity in the 1960s when coffee tables could be found in every living room and waiting room in America. These large expanses of wood begged to be used for something more than just a cup of coffee and David had the answer: The modern coffee table book.
Enter lift top coffee tables. Not only do these tables allow you to dine in style but they also offer you hidden storage, giving you a place to keep things like coasters, remotes, books and even pet or child toys out of sight and out of mind while guests are over. These new tables allow you to be a bit of a neat-kin even if youre really not. When guests are due to arrive, simply lift the top, put away all the things covering your table and youre ready to go. But the true beauty of lift top coffee tables comes during dinner and a movie. Instead of balancing your dinner precariously on your lap, hunching over the coffee table or setting up that origami nightmare, the TV tray, you can simply lift up the top of the table and voila! - an instant dinner table. Depending on the size of your table, you can get a lot of people around one, too. The great thing is that everything is at the perfect height, so you dont have to try to keep your food balanced on a fork as it makes its way from the plate to your mouth.
Why Coffee Tables are Helpful. Some small rooms require a table that can be functional. If this is the case, the table needs to be big enough to hold snacks, lamps, etc. The size of the family also needs to be considered and sometimes a couple of coffee tables will be necessary to meet the needs of a large group of people. Rectangular and square tables can be the answer to this decorating challenge. Round tables can also work but they can offer less surface area. For rooms with an "L" shaped sofa, a coffee table in the middle can offer a convenient spot for large art books, pottery and the like. This furniture arrangement can offer a great opportunity to purchase a table that is unique like a tree trunk table. Tree trunk coffee tables are works of art themselves and offer a great conversation piece in any room. This look is especially fitting in rooms with a rustic feel. Tile mosaic tables are another choice and can even be commissioned by local artists to use colors already found in the room.
