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.
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.
The more plain sofa tables are meant to be put up against a wall and offer a little more counter area behind a sofa. But, others are ornate and dressy, meant to be shown off. These are tables that should be set out in an open area of the room with the sofa up against one side of them, but the other side open to be seen by all who pass by.
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.
Therefore decorating your home whether for the first time or just redesigning the house can now be a lot of fun with a wide range of furniture available and particularly for your living room. You might even find it hard to believe that it could be more fun when you design you home when on a budget. Although this would be a lot challenging to find the best piece of furniture to provide your room with the best look, there are still options available. The main or focal point of your living room is often occupied by the sofa set the lamp and the center or sofa table. Although there are some people who prefer using ceiling or hanging lights as opposed to using lamps you might still want to include a small lamp which serves just like an additional light fixture while adding some warmth to the atmosphere and to the furniture. This means that just a small lamp placed on a contemporary sofa table besides the sofa chair can provide a warm welcoming atmosphere for you and your guests. Moreover the guests would also automatically settle towards this chair. Therefore it can be an excellent place to design some luxuries and lavish room decor.
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.
