Whether it is the streets of Paris, the roadside bistro in England, or the terrace café in Vienna, coffee tables and romance is somehow connected at a DNA level. It’s perhaps coffee itself.
It is said that Johann Sebastian Bach had once described coffee as “lovelier than a thousand kisses, sweeter far than muscatel wine!”. There cannot be a more romantic description of a drink than that.
Perhaps it is the setting that makes coffee the drink of romance. We all have heard how romantic it is to gaze into each other eye. What better way to do it then over coffee tables.
Even commercial coffee shops have their romantic moments. But we are talking about the open air cafés that make Europe the most romantic place to be.
Imagine some cobble stoned alley in Zurich, a small open café, a small table and two cups of Mocha. What else do you need but good company? It also helps that coffee is much more affordable and you don’t need to wait till sun down to enjoy some romantic time over a coffee.
After all, romance often happens at an early age and a romantic candle light dinner is not feasible always. Rather meeting over a cup of coffee and talking over the tiny table becomes the better option.
Considering the romantic crowd that throngs the cafes, coffee table romance has become a phrase today. There are so many romantic stories where the young lovers meet over a cup of coffee and the relationship blooms. So what makes coffee table so romantic apart from the coffee? Some say it must be the size. Smaller than usual dinner table, it is easier to lean across a tiny little table and get lost into each other’s eyes.
One romantic author once mentioned how she got all her ideas by watching the open-air café across the street to her house. Every day she would see familiar and new couples stroll into the café, sit across the coffee table, and get lost in their world. There were those who were obviously testing waters and then there were the older couples who came there again and again.
Coffee tables in that café must have borne witness to so many romantic moments. I mean just how many people started their relation over a coffee. “How about a cup of coffee?” is definitely one of the sweetest pickup lines.
So much so that book sellers these days use the coffee table to market their books. These are called coffee table reading, small light romantic readings that catch the eye of those who take a moment to stop at the café.
Whether it’s at a café or at home, coffee tables immediately set up a romantic setting. Furniture stores even sell these tables labeled romantic, just so that you can set up that terrace love-nook for yourself. If you can’t go to Europe, bring the romance of those places right to your door step with these romantic coffee tables.
