When you are thinking about a theme, you can start with what is going on in the rest of the room. If you already have a theme, then you want your sofa tables to pick up these influences. You can do this through color, texture, pattern or material.
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.
- Length - It doesn't get any tackier than looking at a sofa table that sticks out past one end of the sofa. It looks like someone wasn't paying attention to the details of fitting furniture together. And that's probably exactly what happened. Instead of trying to figure out a way to cover up ill-fitting furniture after the fact, take the time to measure the length of your sofa and make sure that the table will fit well within its limitations. It's OK for a table to be a little short, but having it stick out past the sofa is not going to look right.
Sofa tables are often selected for the function they provide. Having an extra surface to place things on behind a sofa can really help out a space. Also most people could use a handy place to stash important papers they don't want to lose. Here are some important considerations anyone should keep in mind when purchasing a new 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.
- Function - if you aren't planning to put your sofa table against the wall with the sofa in front of it, can it serve an extra function? Many are set in the middle of the room with a sofa on one side, and open access to the other side. This is a great space for extra storage. Look for a table with drawers, shelves, and other amenities you can put to use.
