Because so many couples and families are in smaller homes requiring smaller but practical furnishings, name brand furniture manufacturers are getting involved in making the type, size and style of furniture needed. There's not a problem with getting designs to match your current home décor as sofa tables are made in woods, metals and glass that will match any fabrics that may have been used in your sofa. If you can't find what you need to match your home, you may consider have one custom made. This is always a very popular option.
If your room is in a feminine style, a curved or ornate table could well be ideal. If your style is more masculine, simple shapes are more appropriate.
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.
- 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.
Accent tables are another choice of modern sofa tables. These are just what the name implies. They don't have to be used for any purpose other than to accent your room and give it a touch of elegance. They are great stand-alone tables. These unique tables come in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and shapes. You can also find them in discount stores, retail stores as well as furniture stores.
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.
