Next to a sofa, sectional or love seat, one of the most popular pieces of living room furniture has to be coffee tables. Over the years, coffee tables have morphed from a place to set drinks and food while you talk to becoming a surrogate dining room table, thanks to innovations in design.
The Gambaro brothers created the earliest glass coffee tables -made of Venetian crystal - in the early 1900s, by applying the skills they learned after decades of glass making. But people' s fascination with glass started even earlier during the Renaissance period when Murano introduced intricate creations that were reserved for royalty. The craftsmanship of glass coffee tables has since diminished because of modern glass-making technology, but the use of glass in both décor and functional processes still remains and continues to flourish.
Coffee tables have been around for almost as long as any home furniture item. They continue to be a popular and necessary item. Although you may find some homes that don't have coffee tables, the majority of homes consider coffee tables as important in the living room as the sofa. Whether they're used to hold a cup of coffee or soda, for a decorative item or to rest your feet, they are a staple of the living room setting.
Imagine some cobble stoned alley in Zurich, a small open café, a small table and two cups of Mocha. What else do you need but good company? It also helps that coffee is much more affordable and you don't need to wait till sun down to enjoy some romantic time over a coffee. After all, romance often happens at an early age and a romantic candle light dinner is not feasible always. Rather meeting over a cup of coffee and talking over the tiny table becomes the better option.
