A lot of people just leave their sofa tables a blank canvas. Perhaps they put a lamp there, or a photo or two, or to accent the fireplace and mantle. But there's so much more you can do with sofa tables. You can help set the tone of the entire room with the right décor or setting. You can create something that's very romantic, timeless, rustic or even exotic. The choice is really yours.
A sofa table is meant to sit along the back of a sofa. Usually people who purchase a sofa table have their sofas backing up into another room, so instead of the back of a sofa, a table is the focal point of an open space. Most sofa tables are long and thin, and they may be in the shape of a long rectangle or have a half circle shape. Some tables have only shelves, while others have drawers, and still others have some combination of shelves and drawers.
When it comes to your living room, keep your mind and your options open and consider a sofa table to make this space yours.
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.
Do you have a living room with a lot of space and seating room, but you never seem to have enough tabletop area to hold all the drinks, snacks and other items that everyone at your home wants to set down. It's time to call in some sofa tables.
The sofa table carries most of the accessories which define this style, a pair of elegant lamps, a vase filled with flowers and one or two ornaments.
