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. They've 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.
Small wonder why then, that families young and old have moved their dining into the living room. And while coffee tables and TV trays performed admirably, designers realized there had to be a better way.
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.
Round coffee tables are great as either centerpieces or corner accents. The key is to find the right coffee table size and design for your specific purpose. Select a round coffee table with minimalist details if you want other fixtures in your room to stand out, and do the reverse to achieve an opposite effect - choose an intricate and imposing coffee table to downplay the rest of your furniture.
