It may seem like no small task to find the perfect coffee table to complement your home decor, especially since it will serve as a focal centerpiece - but a coffee table for your living area can be so much more! Normally, a coffee table is a small table that is low to the ground, which sits in the center of a living room. It is often used to hold coffee, books, magazines, or other items of decoration. Coffee tables became popular in the 1920s, but they actually have a much longer history. Coffee tables were actually found within the Ottoman Empire, and they were normally placed within tea gardens.
Functional coffee tables are manufactured to have additional uses other than regular coffee tables. These specific types of coffee tables are often built more sturdy than your average coffee table to they are ideal for people who prefer to pay a little more for a table that will last a lot longer (and have additional functions).
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
