Coffee tables and end tables get a lot of attention in homes, but there are other tables you may want to consider as well, such as console and sofa tables.
Modern sofa or console tables are probably the most commonly chosen style today. They are made to be durable, functional and very attractive. You'll find them in modern, baroque and contemporary styles to name just a few. Modern sofa tables are no longer used for decoration behind the sofa. Today they are used in many rooms of the house and serve a variety of purposes.
Sofa tables will probably be the first thing you'll choose after you get your sofa. Many people purchase their tables at the same time as the furniture. Furniture stores often place these items together so customers can see how well they go together. This usually guarantees them a sale. If you don't get your sofa tables at the same time as your sofa or sofa sets, you'll have a lot of deciding to do. You'll be amazed at the many styles of sofa and console tables available today.
- 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.
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.
If you're interested in more of a modern look, you can get some wood finished sofa tables with drawers for storage. These come in a variety of sizes and finishes. Contemporary style tables can be purchased in a sleek black finish with geometric lines and designs. Wrought iron is another style that's widely used in sofa or console tables. These can be used for many different functions including a place to store beverages, a display place for your favorite knick-knacks or your favorite family portraits. Many decorators have the ever-popular scented candles or a live plant sitting on top of their sofa or console tables. Whatever function you choose for your sofa tables, they are sure to add some style and décor to your living room.
