If your room is in a feminine style, a curved or ornate table could well be ideal. If your style is more masculine, simple shapes are more appropriate.
Sofa tables work in two different ways. They can either be selected to blend in with the back of the sofa, or they can set it off as an accent feature. Either way you go, it is very important to remember that the back of the sofa is extremely important when you are looking for these tables. Most people do not spend much time looking at the back of their sofas, and they forget to check it out before they go shopping. Just take a good long look at how the sofa backs up to the other space and determine the best way to approach it. Don't forget to measure the length and height of the sofa before shopping. This will ensure that the tables you look at aren't too big or too small for the sofa you have. Once you have your measurements, then it's time to start looking at tables.
The more plain sofa tables are meant to be put up against a wall and offer a little more counter area behind a sofa. But, others are ornate and dressy, meant to be shown off. These are tables that should be set out in an open area of the room with the sofa up against one side of them, but the other side open to be seen by all who pass by.
As the Industrial Revolution began to pick up speed in the late eighteen century, weaving of fabrics changed dramatically. The fabric weaving quickly moved from a cottage industry to mass production. Eventually, the cost for fabric dropped and new uses for it grew. It was in this time when the settee was replaced by the fully upholstered couch, or sofa. This is when they became less important, and were pushed to the wall.
If you own your home, you're probably planning to stay there for a while, so you aren't as limited with your choices. The sofa will be the biggest purchase in your living room. Besides the wall colors, it will be the part that everything else will center around. In other words, you won't be getting a sofa that goes well with your accessories, but rather your accessories need to blend with your sofa and walls. The most common accessories for your living room are lighting fixtures, wall hangings and sofa tables.
In the living room, sofa tables continue to be used as an item to display some of your favorite heirlooms, photos or keepsakes. Of course, many people still use them as the traditional coffee or end table, something that will never go out of style.
