The sofa tables which originated during the late seventeen and early eighteen hundreds were very much intentional. The upholstered sofa did not appear at that time as we can see today. The settee was the standard before that period, which would be paired with a sofa table.
There is nothing like having a quality piece of furniture, and sofa tables make a wonderful accent to any décor. They can add some extra surface area in a place where there is very little room to set anything down, or they can accent the back of a sofa. There are so many different styles of sofa tables that it is pretty much a guarantee that you will be able to find one that fits your décor perfectly. Here are some important things to keep in mind whenever you are looking at sofa tables.
Each of the rooms in our home has a purpose. Although we spend a certain amount of time in each room, the rooms we spend the most time in are the living room or family room. The family or living room is often called the great room and we want it to look great. It's where we spend time kicking back as a family watching TV, reading, playing games or entertaining guests. When guests come into the great room, we want our styles and feelings to be reflected in our furnishings. Simply put, we want a room we can proudly display to our guests. We want this room to be a room where everyone feels comfortable and welcome.
Style. One of the most important features of a sofa table is style. This is because the table must actually complement the back of the sofa. Many people forget to take into account the way the back of their sofa looks when they are shopping for a table to place along the back. Depending on what style you prefer, you may like a table that blends into the back of your sofa. If so, then look for a table that is roughly the same color as your sofa. If you prefer accents, then look for a table that will have a very dramatic effect when placed along the back of your sofa. Just make sure that you don't mix contemporary with traditional styles or modern with antique. Remember that the back of your couch is an important part of the display that will become part of your sofa table after it is in place.
If you have a nice collection of themed pieces from your travels, be sure you continue your collection on your table. Choose a dominant piece for it, such as a large sailing ship if you're doing a nautical theme or a tribal mask if you have an African themed room.
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.
