I have always loved a coffee table, without it my living area feels kind of empty and lost. Why? Because on it I situate some of my prized possessions for entertainment. The coffee table derives from the tea table and is primarily known as the centerpiece for casual entertainment and usually has seating around it. Mine is a mid-century modern coffee table and is placed between my couch and my TV, a perfect place for casual entertainment, I’d say. As magazines became popular the coffee table became the place where these colorful covers would be displayed for guests to enjoy a beverage and light read. It wasn’t long before the coffee table was accessorized with things like ceramics and vases of flowers.
A coffee table is comforting to me, I love being able to have my favorite magazines, books, candles, crystals, and my favorite porcelain mug and cookies before me as I relax. It is for sure my main centerpiece for casual entertainment. Do you have a coffee table? We would love to know what’s on it.
