In the living room, sofa tables continue to be used as an item to display some of your favorite heirlooms, photos or keepsakes. Of course, many people still use them as the traditional coffee or end table, something that will never go out of style.
Console tables are another version of the modern sofa tables you see in many homes. These are perfect for the home that isn't perfectly square. If you have any nooks or crannies that you don't know what to do with, a console table will perfectly fill up that space. Put a live plant or statue on top and you have the perfect addition to your great room.
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.
Usually accent tables are meant to hold decorative pieces, although it isn't a bad idea to look for a sofa table that also has a little bit of storage. Baskets make for very efficient storage, and they often accent the table as well. Some sofa tables also come with small baskets that fit perfectly into the shelves, so there is no need to purchase baskets separately.
So just what are sofa tables?
Materials and Use. The type of material that the sofa tables are made out of is also very important, both for durability and for the type of look you want to create. The material can be used to make the table blend into the back of the sofa or actually cause it to stand out, more as an accent piece. Shoppers should think about how they want to use the table also because this can affect whether it is an accent piece or one that blends into the couch. An accent piece can be used to set off a very nice decorative element like a piece of crystal or a vase with flowers in it. However, a table that will be used for books, magazines, and whatever else is lying around might look better if it blended into the back of the sofa.
