One romantic author once mentioned how she got all her ideas by watching the open-air café across the street to her house. Every day she would see familiar and new couples stroll into the café, sit across the coffee table, and get lost in their world. There were those who were obviously testing waters and then there were the older couples who came there again and again.
Many tables are built at around 16 inches tall, but some of the more modern choices can be closer to a foot tall. If you are looking for a comfortable and homey choice that people can put their feet on while they enjoy their coffee, you may want to choose an upholstered wooden table that will be more durable than a glass top. However, if you do have a smaller living space, it may be a great idea to choose a table style with a glass top that will allow light to penetrate and open up the space as opposed to a solid coffee table. One more benefit to a glass top table for your home is that it will show your beautiful carpet or wooden flooring through to all of your guests.
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.
If you are looking for specialty items, you can try looking online in websites like Craigslist or any other local sites that list such things. You can also put in a "wanted" ad for your particular coffee table in these websites and let people come to you instead.
As said above some glass coffee tables are suited to houses that have a modern décor which can accommodate a table with an elegant smoke glass top for example, supported by modern, X-shaped chrome legs, or a longer table, also made of glass and chrome, with a lower level shelf for storage. Other types have glass tabletops borne on some metal pillars on a coloured base which brings style into a living room. This kind of table is perfect for a modern studio, apartment or house.
