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.
If you really want to add an elegant touch to a room consider using vintage coffee tables. These older pieces of furniture are often made from mahogany cherry or oak wood and these woods have attained rich patina and deep color over the years. While hardwoods appeared to be the material of choice there were also decorative tables that were made from metal; this was often seen in furnishings imported from Europe. Many of these tables were created by very famous designers and artists and today you can expect to pay hefty sums for these quality pieces in a retail establishment.
Tables have been common pieces of furniture in homes since the dawn of civilization up until the present. Their designs have evolved from pieces of wood bound together by a rope to the more sophisticated ones of today. Today s most controversial furniture is the lift coffee tables. Lift coffee tables are built with lifts that make them usable in a number of ways. They are inspired from the modern-day living of convenience and the wise use of limited space. Designs and uses vary depending on the buyers intention. There are those whose lifts move forward thus creating a comfortable impromptu desk or office space.
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.
