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.
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.
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.
There are 2 types of tables the decorative types where it‘s only function is to be place in any part of the room and look good.

Most people prefer to buy the glass option for most artists prefer glass over wood. But in decorating your house you have to choose some furniture‘s that reflects your personality. If you want to have a glass coffee table and at the same time wants to put some wood on it then you can find wood and glass coffee table.
