In many rooms at that time, sofas and sofa tables were paired with fireplaces. A fireplace was often considered the center and focus of a common room. Sometimes, they would be placed near the hearth or fireplace with chairs so those in the room could take advantage of the warmth of the fire.
Today, console and sofa tables are virtually interchangeable in the home, giving you more design options than ever. If you want to add a table in a hall, for example, you can go with a traditional console table, but you may want to look at sofa tables as well, especially if you're looking for a specific shape or style.
Sofa tables have been around for hundreds of years and continue to be almost a necessity in your living room. They come in a variety of colors, styles and sizes. They're made to go in almost any room décor. They can also make or break the final look in your decorating scheme. In addition to being a beautiful addition to your living room, sofa tables are functional and versatile enough to be used in other rooms as well.
If you're unfamiliar with sofa tables, let's review them briefly. Created in the 18th century, sofa tables are a tall, thing and long table. They are about two-thirds the length of the sofa and the top comes up to the edge of the back of the sofa, and ideally, just a little bit lower.
For example, let's go with a romantic theme. You can start with a lace doily, runner or tablecloth for your sofa tables. If you want to go with a romantic turn of the century look, add a kerosene lamp to the table and perhaps an antique stereoscope with a few image cards placed under it. A couple old books in a stack can also be a nice touch.
When it comes to your living room, keep your mind and your options open and consider a sofa table to make this space yours.
