You use them everyday and they are almost all around. In different shapes, sizes and colors with one name - table. Word 'table' comes from Latin as it meant 'a board, flat piece'. The shortest definition might say 'furniture; piece of horizontal surface, standing on leg(s), used to hold objects'. Now designing and making tables became an art. It's not only useful thing anymore but also an element of decoration.
Furniture can do more than beautifully accent an arrangement of flowers and other plant life. It can also bring people together in a unique way, bringing a slower paced mentality to the way we approach life and art. When we take time to appreciate the little things that enrich our lives and give our joy full bloom, we can start to understand our differences and the way we approach our lives from our own unique perspective.
Changes in social habits, industrial development brought many changes in the look of furniture and tables as well. Early tables, made by Egyptians and Chinese, were platforms of stone used only to put something on them (not to sit around) or to practise writing or painting (in the second case). Greeks and Romans used their tables for eating so as monk's in Middle Ages. But in this period tables weren't popular. Mostly made of wood, designed only for aristocracy, kings, queens and of course for monk's.
Most of the newer designs are becoming more trendy, fashionable, and with very convenient features and functions. Cocktail tables are also known as coffee tables which are commonly displayed with the couch or sofa set and chairs in the living room and sometimes in the masters bedroom when there is more space to display it. Cocktail tables are usually low in height and long. It is mainly use as a basic table with some more room to keep magazines and books on display. A lift top cocktail table usually has an added feature for extra storage with more functionality features than an ordinary table.
