For the décor of a drawing or living room we keep occasional tables that are used for decorative purpose or to fill up the empty spaces. Decorative items like flowers vases or lamps are kept on them to add charm and beauty to the room. These are called occasional tables as they are not for any specific purpose. At times coffee tables are also referred to as occasional tales.

Coffee tables are not only important decorating elements but prove to be quite practical and convenient therefore they have increased in popularity.
Earlier the style used to comprise of one main low center table called the coffee table but now witnessing the increased usage of these tables it comes with one main table and two or more than two side tables. Today coffee tables come in all shapes and sizes. We have marble toped, wooden and glass topped coffee tables all easily available in the furniture shops.
