Table Settings




As I’ve talked about in my earlier post, table’s and etc were used back in the Renaissance era like it is shown on the top image. Table’s weren’t also placed because of the design of the space and etc, they were also set for management of food, presentation and comfort.

It is also said that the table setting is in relationship to the architecture of houses and the land the houses were in was a major factor.

This tells me that the coffee table just doesn’t need to match with the design on designs inside the house, but it affects the style of the country and architecture.
