Tables are pieces of furniture that have a flat smooth surface and are supported by one or more legs. Serving a range of specialized tasks, uses, and spatial demands, tables are adjustable and adaptable to the wide spectrum of human activities and functions such as eating, working and recreational activities. The design of a table is commonly concerned with elements that include the size, height and shape of the tabletop surface, type of legs, flexibility, adaptability, portability, weight, and materiality. Most tables are utilized throughout both homes and workplaces as desks, dining tables, coffee tables, and even table tennis. Designed out of stone, wood, metal, glass and many other materials, tables provide a perfect surface for a variety of uses.
