Coffee tables are a very common style of sofa tables. These modern sofa tables should be chosen carefully. Don't assume because it's a name brand that it's going to be perfect for your great room. Choose the size as carefully as you choose the style and color. The color should blend well with your furniture, so choose neutral colors unless they're wood, which goes with almost anything. If the coffee table is used for coffee or appearance, the height won't really matter. However, if you'll be using it to rest your feet, consider that height and make sure it's tall enough.
Sofa tables are indeed similar and date back to about the same time, the 1600s and 1700s. Originally they were used as an impromptu writing desk, being placed higher and behind a settee or sofa. While note writing fell out of fashion, at least while at the sofa, the sofa table continued to be a popular addition to homes, providing a convenient place for candles in the pre-electric light age and making the sofa look a little more attractive when it was set in the middle of a room as opposed to being against the wall.
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.
Sofa tables will probably be the first thing you'll choose after you get your sofa. Many people purchase their tables at the same time as the furniture. Furniture stores often place these items together so customers can see how well they go together. This usually guarantees them a sale. If you don't get your sofa tables at the same time as your sofa or sofa sets, you'll have a lot of deciding to do. You'll be amazed at the many styles of sofa and console tables available today.
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 haven't used them before, traditional sofa tables are tables that are meant to fit right up behind the sofas in your home to offer another counter space.
