A cocktail table can hardly be described as an essential feature in your home (unless you make a living serving drinks, of course), yet there is always a place in the home for that little bit of extra style and perhaps a little theatre. If you love nothing more than to have friends round to socialize and you like to serve them drinks in an informal and friendly environment, then you will need an eye catching table upon which to serve beverages. Here at Vinterior you will find an array of different cocktail table styles but few are as popular as those from the mid-20th century. Explore our collection today and find the perfect piece for your living room or lounge.

Mid-century cocktail table or coffee table

If truth be told there is really very little difference between the so-called cocktail table and a coffee table. Both are low-slung tables used for serving drinks and it seems that styles, shapes and finishes really are interchangeable. Yet no matter how you wish to describe this form of table the principle stays much the same. A table at the centre of a social space plays an important role in the design of a room. After all, it will be right in the middle of a space; not off to one side in a quiet corner.

Vintage cocktail tables lend a sophistication to a room that reminds you of a time of non-stop cocktail parties and endless glamour. The cocktail table comes in a variety of styles, sizes and shapes. From stones and gems to painted themes, these designs tell the story of their era while filling your home with a sense of chic. While Art Deco designs may be particularly opulent, cocktail tables from the mid-century were certainly more restrained, simple and reliant on the quality of the materials to do much of the talking.

Why choose mid-century cocktail tables?

Mid-century design is known for perfectly blending practicality and aesthetics. The creators of furniture in this era used a wide range of colour, including monochrome, and also liberally used materials such as wood, metal, glass, vinyl, Lucite and plywood. Plastic was introduced around this time and it greatly influenced new designers who used it not to imitate wood, but for its own individual flexibility and promise.

All these elements and more are present in mid century cocktail table designs. Their versatility, beauty and blend of forward thinking and nostalgia makes them a truly unique introduction into any home. The decorative elements on mid-century tables tell stories of the era and can be used to relive history through your home design.
