Seems like the modern set of people have gotten away from the complementary our parents and grandparents knew as necessities. It was unheard of not to have a coffee table next to the sofa for the last generation. Everyone had end tables and a center table for coffee a decade ago. Where did they go?
This is because in the US there is no requirement for glass tables to be made from tempered glass. Tempered glass is a glass that has been treated so that if shattered it splits into small, regular shaped cubes that are unlikely to cause injury.
Whilst these are not too attractive to look at they are a great way to prevent accidents and only need to be used for a relatively small time whilst your child is in their toddler phase. Similarly there are now ”bumpers” available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed.
If you often have guests, a higher one might be more suited, because everyone will be able to reach their cup. A rule of interior design says that the height of the coffee table should be about the same height (or not less than five inches lower than) the couch. Ideal length is two thirds of the couch. However, no rule is set in stone. Depending on your tastes and the rest of the room, you can choose what ever size and color coffee table you wish.
