Libby Wilkie at aneyefordetail
Coffee tables — or cocktail tables, as they were formerly known — came into being during the Victorian era. But oh how they have evolved! Whatever your style preference: industrial, classic, mid-century modern, colorful or traditional, take a look at these and perhaps discover something new. —Libby from An Eye for Detail

This is where it all began: the Eames wire base table. Functional, lightweight, and available in several finishes and top colors.

Classic. Be sure to pair this one with a really long sofa. Nice use of a drawer to stash your coasters or other accessories.
