A table for coffee, traditionally, was required in the middle of the living-room. Residence entertaining was a severe affair in the old days, due to the ceremony of five-o'clock tea. When a visitor makes a house phone call, she or he must rest in the pillows, and have to be served tea or coffee, with some biscuits or crepes. These will be organized in a tray, with a delicate china service, and afterwards offered and put upon the coffee table. After that, the afternoon will be spent with discussion, stories, and also information.
