You can purchase an all glass table or a glass table paired with wood or paired with wrought iron. Glass gives the room an illusion of width because you can see through it which is great if you live in a small apartment or house. The author does not recommend glass on homes where there are small kids as glass has the tendency to break. When buying glass tables always be sure that you ask for tempered or treated glass because when this type of glass breaks it will not have sharp edges unlike untreated glass which has the tendency to break in large shards.
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.
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.
