If you have ever pondered why we park in driveways and drive on parkways, you might also wonder why coffee tables are called that when they are far more commonly used to hold the television remote or a magazine or two instead of your coffee cup. However, when the coffee table was first introduced, it often was used as a place where guests could sit their cup of coffee down easily. It was a modification of the tea table used when tea was more in favor. At that time, coffee tables were lower in stature than today’s, and there weren’t as many choices as we have now.
