Coffee tables are also sometimes known as cocktail tables. But where did the name originate? I mean why not tea tables or wine tables. Is it because its the most popular drink in America and you just add it to "table" and it stuck ever since? Or is there more to it? Well lets first look on why coffee became the choice drink of America. Ottoman Turks introduced the beverage and the word "coffee" to Europe, where it eventually spread to America. Because of that some say that they also introduced the "coffee table" as well.
A small table in an entrance hall is accent furniture, along with a chest in a hallway and a large free standing globe in a home office. It sets a theme or a mood, emphasizes a trend or even complements the purpose of a room such as an ornate oriental footstool in a living room. These are definitions of accent furniture and occasional furniture in the eyes of many people, but if you asked any individual for their own definition they would either be unable to answer or would likely offer a different one.
