Coffee Table – More Than Just A Table

Coffee table is more than just a piece of useful furniture. Coffee table is often a central piece of furniture in living room, and more often than not, a piece of furniture that is selected as decoration with the function of table.


Coffee Table 101

As said, coffee table is often considered as centerpiece of a living room, around which chairs and other sitting furniture is set. It’s a foundational part of a living room space! Coffee table’s versatility has no borders…a footrest, drink holder, working desk, gaming table…functionality of your coffee table will most likely dwarf all other pieces of furniture in your home.

Let’s see some definitions of coffee table. Wikipedia says that a coffee table is a low table designed to be placed in a sitting area for convenient support of beverages, remote controls, magazines, books (especially large, illustrated coffee table books), decorative objects, and other small items. Mariam-Webster dictionary says that coffee table is a low table customarily placed in front of a sofa — called also cocktail table.

Coffee tables gain their popularity during the late Victorian era (19th century), and the later-adopted idea of having a low(er) may have come from the Ottoman Empire in which the habit of drinking tea and coffee was done sitting on the floor or low chairs, with a lower table.


Modern-day Coffee Tables

Modern coffee tables come in variety of forms, functionalities, shapes/styles. In today’s homes, a coffee table is still a center piece but it can be mainly functional, with storage space, minimalistic design, industrial design coffee table…or it can be fully decorative with minimal functionality.

Today coffee table can be “a piece of furniture” or luxury object that will cause awe to all your visitors. And according to that, prices can go from $50 to $20,000, or even 6-digit numbers for some auctioned tables with “history”.
