Earlier, coffee tables were not called so. They were known as cocktail tables. This kind of says something about our nature of entertainment and the change it has gone through over the years, right? To be lured into the prospect of buying table furniture, you have to first dream what it can really do for you. Just let your mind play back all those moments when you come back home from work, tired to the boots that you cannot rest them on the ground anymore. You somehow drag yourself onto the sofa, being suddenly glad for that low table of the perfect height, so that you can throw your legs over it and rest in peace. Try another memory_ how about the times when you get into a heated passion when your football team wins, and to rejoice the moment you glance down and see your beer glasses winking at you from the coffee table?
Provocative but Functional _ Coffee tables can be a fusion of the living and the abstract _ a combination of aquarium and modern art. An ottoman combining storage, coffee pot and fish _ though not fish for eating but for discussion. It is a living item of furniture that is both beautiful and thought provoking. A provocative item of furniture is sure to keep the conversation flowing over coffee. To put it in simpler terms, it should be a piece of furniture that people notice and comment upon, but that can also be used for setting down snacks, coffee cups and drinks glass. That, after all, is its primary raison d'être. Above all else,this type of table must be functional and the fish should not get in the way of the cups, nor should the books leave no room for the plates.
