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?
Wooden Coffee Tables _ Wooden coffee tables have less safety problems as a rule than glass ones; however there are still hazards that can exist. One of the particular dangers commonly encountered is the problem of small children learning to walk who injure themselves on sharp corners. Many baby and parenting shops and even IKEA now sell corner bumpers; small rounded foam or plastic caps that help to prevent injury. Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase. Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed.
