The second version is associated with Japan – the culture and style of the rising sun were very popular in England in the late nineteenth century.
Coffee is called a table, the height of which does not exceed 50 cm. Normally, the longer the table, so it is below. Conversely, the greater the height of the coffee table, the smaller the area of its countertops.
