First, decide on the focal point in your living room. Whether it's the TV, a piece of art, large glass windows, or any other item, you should put your sofa parallel to that focus piece.
If you're unfamiliar with sofa tables, let's review them briefly. Created in the 18th century, sofa tables are a tall, thing and long table. They are about two-thirds the length of the sofa and the top comes up to the edge of the back of the sofa, and ideally, just a little bit lower.
If you are on a budget, you don't have to spend a fortune to have a great living room setting with a sofa table involved. Sofa tables can range in price from a hundred dollars or so to thousands of dollars. While you may like the ones that cost thousands, you may have to make due with a couple hundred-dollar budget. Here's how to make it work.
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.
When selecting a table that is meant to blend in with your sofa, choose a color or shade that matches your sofa. Light oak wood pairs wonderfully with light-colored leather, while glass with a silver metal frame is a great way to minimize the effect against sofas with unusual colors or patterns.
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.
