After World War I, coffee tables became even more popular in the American home, and they were often sold with complete furniture sets instead of by themselves. These days, tables can stand on their own, and they frequently work as an intricate piece to add even more ambiance to your existing interior design.
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.
Another thing to keep in mind when choosing a coffee table is the cost. Think about your habits and how you use your table. Do you like to sit on the sofa with your legs up on the table? Then you will need a square ottoman style table. You need space for storing magazines or other such pieces? You need a table with several drawers or shelves or you can go for one looking like a bottom drawer. Your living room is the meeting place of friends? You need a large table so you can fit lots glasses or cups on it. You want a big meal, but not always have enough space? Choose a "nest" of tables, meaning three tables of different sizes that can be used separately, but can be tidied away beneath one and other.
