If you're interested in more of a modern look, you can get some wood finished sofa tables with drawers for storage. These come in a variety of sizes and finishes. Contemporary style tables can be purchased in a sleek black finish with geometric lines and designs. Wrought iron is another style that's widely used in sofa or console tables. These can be used for many different functions including a place to store beverages, a display place for your favorite knick-knacks or your favorite family portraits. Many decorators have the ever-popular scented candles or a live plant sitting on top of their sofa or console tables. Whatever function you choose for your sofa tables, they are sure to add some style and décor to your living room.
Function. A sofa table should also be very functional. Before you go shopping, think about what you might use it for. If the table is merely to display decorative items on, then keep that in mind. Some tables also employ very stylistic elements that allow for additional function. One very popular style right now is the sofa table that has baskets underneath. Baskets add some much-needed texture to a room while still allowing for additional storage. Unlike drawers, baskets can be easily removed and taken somewhere else in the house. They are a great place to store small toys or blocks for children. Then when company comes over, just scoop up the blocks and stow them away in the baskets.
Now you get to dress it up. While you don't want it to be the center of attention, you also don't want the table to stand out as being an ugly and unloved piece of furniture with no decoration. Find items that accent the rest of your room or are useful in this space. If you will be doing reading or need a little extra light in the room, this may be a great place for a table lamp. Otherwise, a vase, statue or even some books can fill some of the tabletop area.
While it may seem there are a lot of details to note before purchasing a sofa or console table, you need to remember this is a larger furniture purchase. The price can be substantial, and it's important to make sure you will be completely happy with the purchase once you bring the piece home.
So just what are sofa tables?
The main room you'll find modern sofa tables in is the living room, but they also make great furniture additions in other rooms including the dining room, bedroom or family room. They're the perfect addition to that empty space in your corner or along that blank wall. Decorative statues, portraits, candles, centerpieces or live plants are some of the many things you may see sitting atop modern sofa or console tables.
