Center table. The secret to getting harmony and balance right is organization.

By Raquel Rossetto

Table, a word that derives from the Latin tabula, is the center of a meeting, where work is carried out in a kitchen, and where most of the meals and beautiful banquets are held.

It is believed that the coffee table was created in Europe, in Great Britain, during the Victorian era. In the beginning the tables were high, but over time they started to be low, inspired by the Japanese tea tables.

The coffee table, in addition to being a very important piece for the composition and functionality of a living and living room, also serves as a support. Always in the spotlight, they can be decorated with trays, art objects, books, vases with plants and flowers, candles, objects with history, small sculptures and decorative pieces.

The secret to getting harmony and balance right is organization. It is important to pay attention to the proportion between the furniture and the chosen pieces and the distribution and arrangement of the items.

One of the most flexible furniture in the room, the coffee table needs to fit into your environment and the rhythm of the house. Look for the ideal material to connect with the decor and with the people who live in the house. Do not wear items that impede circulation, which may cause discomfort in homes with children. Use the right materials for small spaces with lots of sunlight, resistant materials in rooms with more use and that need more practicality in everyday life, among others.

The coffee table is a blank page!
