Coffee Table. Monday , February 05th , 2018 - 08:43:29 AM
While the coffee table may seem like it has always been a part of home decor, they actually did not come into use in the American home until the 1920s. While coffee lovers in England was active in coming up with furniture pieces to facilitate a coffee shop type atmosphere, their solution was a table that still stood at about 27 inches tall. The much shorter coffee table height of 18-20 inches which has now become "standard," came into play when the prohibition of the 1920s changed the focus of the home entertainment scene.
Osborne Wood Products gives designers, furniture makers, hobbyists, and homeowners the opportunity to truly express themselves in their furniture and home decor choices. Osborne carries a full line of wooden legs for coffee tables, as well as decorative turnings and carved legs in many other heights. Ideal for a Mission-style coffee table, tapered mission legs are available at a five inch width, creating the bold and strong look the Mission look calls for. A narrower taper is available without the recessed carving, creating a look that is more along the lines of the Shaker style. In addition, a variety of turnings are available, from the simple yet elegant English Country leg, to the more ornate Old World leg. For those occasions which call for something a little bit different, Osborne Wood Products is also more than happy to work with their customers to create custom wood legs.
A convertible coffee table is a great option for people with space restrictions like a small kitchen or lack of a dining room. It is ideal for someone who lives in a studio apartment. Some fancy ones can transform from a coffee table to an elegant glass topped dining table for when you have company while others that have cleverly hidden stools that come away from the table base for dining. A good example is the dual purpose bamboo Convertible Table designed by the Danish designer Tom Rossau. It changes from a coffee unit to a 10 person dining table. The convertible tables can function as workstations, storage spaces, meal tables or simply flat surfaces for your drink or books while you lounge on the sofa. And all this can be achieved just by adjusting the height of the lift top.
