Susanne Wittgenstein. Coffee Table. November 09th , 2017.
As people moved away from cocktails toward coffee, J. Stuart Foote was there to meet the new demand, and named himself the inventor of the coffee table. Until Mr. Foote’s company - the Imperial Furniture Company - began mass producing this newly needed furniture, ordinary citizens were relegated to sawing the legs of higher tables to bring them down to the appropriate height. Despite its relatively recent beginning, the coffee table quickly gained popularity in the American home.
Here are some tips and advice about wood and glass tables. A wood and glass coffee table has a glass top with a wooden frame on it. This wooden frame is put there to protect the glass from breaking easily. It is more durable compared to a glass top only model. Before you go out and buy one you need to know what type of table you want. You also have to take note of the material you want in your table. Do you want a glass top or the traditional wooden top, do you want your base to be stainless steel or you‘d rather prefer to have stone or wood. These are just few of the many things you need to consider.
There are times when a cocktail table is just not enough there are times you‘d need coffee table sets to beautify your living spaces and complete the look that you‘re trying to achieve. This is because coffee table sets include one or two end tables and a cocktail table that complement each other thus enhancing the beauty of the room where they are located. For such combination, the most common material they are made from is wood such as mahogany, cherry, oak, teak, or pine. Not only is wood used for such table sets, glass, metal, stone such as slate and marble, and even strong and very durable plastics such as Lucite.
The maintenance of a mahogany coffee table is not difficult. It needs to be cleaned with a soft glass cloth thus making the table look bright and shiny. It does not give a very formal appearance thus one can place it in a living room as well. People love it when they see such a beautiful piece of art. Although these tables are expensive yet there is no harm in one buying it as it shows out as an exclusive taste and stands out from rest of the home decor due to its elite appearance.
