While the coffee table may seem like it has always been a part of home decor they actually did not come into use in the American home until the 1920s. While coffee lovers in England was active in coming up with furniture pieces to facilitate a coffee shop type atmosphere their solution was a table that still stood at about 27 inches tall. The much shorter coffee table height of 18-20 inches which has now become standard came into play when the prohibition of the 1920s changed the focus of the home entertainment scene.
Take a peek at any furniture showroom and you will see a world of coffee tables. you will find black light wood dark wood plastic glass and even marble tables. But if you want a really coffee table few things beat home-grown ingenuity. Anything from old factory wire spools to ornate driftwood and glass arrangements can be a table that friends envy. Throw a nice coat of varnish on that giant wire spool to create a glossy table. There have even been Ouija board tables. Careful how you move that coaster! One can even create their own tables from layers of corrugated cardboard box! By gluing layer after layer of corrugated cardboard until an acceptable height for your table is reached.
