A sofa table is tall and thin, and typically used behind a sofa, hence the name. On average, they are 30-32 inches high, 14-18 inches deep and 48-55 inches long. This table type is most useful in a large room where the seating area is divided from the rest, and can be used in several configurations. The classic English country house interior centers around a seating area, usually around a fireplace; two sofas are placed facing each other and at right angles to the fire; behind each sofa is a sofa table. A coffee table, or large ottoman, sits between the sofas.
Accent Tables. Sofa tables that are meant to be accent tables will work as a sort of opposing force to the back of the sofa. For example, a black or dark brown sofa might be accented with a gold or light oak sofa table. The effect is even more dramatic when pairing colors like red and black, black and white, or any other dramatic colors together.
