Form follows function. You have heard this truism before but it is ever so true when speaking about tables.

Beginning as a flat platform with four legs for support; the table’s design has evolved dramatically from ancient times to today but its function is still the same—to place an object upon.

Listen to the tables I am about to mention and think about each table’s specific usage and therefore it specific height and dimension requirements.

So, use specific tables to achieve the function and the design look you want.
