Will it be a Coffee or a Cocktail?

What exactly is the difference between a coffee table and a cocktail table?  It seems like it all depends on what type of drink you prefer to set on it.  I'm on the cocktail table team.  Also, for some reason I always think about Kramer (from Seinfeld) and his infamous coffee table book that actually turns into a coffee table.

There are a few "rules" when it comes to cocktail tables, but like all rules, they are made to be broken, bent or ignored.  
  • Allow about 18" between the sofa and table.  
  • The height of your table should be within 4" of the height of your sofa.
  • The length of your table should be about 3/4 of the length of your sofa.
 Here are some of my favorite cocktail table selections, along with some out of the box ideas that I absolutely love!
