  • A coffee table is a style of long, low table which is designed to be placed in front of a couch, to support beverages (hence the name), magazines, books (especially coffee table books), and other small items to be used while sitting, such as coasters.


    Origins of the coffee table: The first tables, in Europe, specifically designed as and called coffee tables, appear to have been made in Britain during the late Victorian era. Prior to the late 18th century, the tables used in Europe in conjunction with a settle included occasional tables, end tables, centee tables, and tea tables.
