If you own your home, you're probably planning to stay there for a while, so you aren't as limited with your choices. The sofa will be the biggest purchase in your living room. Besides the wall colors, it will be the part that everything else will center around. In other words, you won't be getting a sofa that goes well with your accessories, but rather your accessories need to blend with your sofa and walls. The most common accessories for your living room are lighting fixtures, wall hangings and sofa tables.
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.
So just what are sofa tables?
Next, put your sofa table up behind the sofa. This is going to accomplish a few things. First it will be giving you the utility area you needed, but it will also take that less than impressive table and move it where it will do it's job without being the focus of too much attention, since the attention is already going to be focused elsewhere.
The furniture we choose for the great room will reflect a lot about us. Try to make your furniture tell a story about the kind of home you have. Modern furniture such as sofas and modern sofa tables can make a room look beautiful all by themselves. Since they have first come out hundreds of years ago, they've been there for our comfort. They used to be used when the family members sat next to the hearth and read. They were used for warmth next to the fireplace as well as a place to situate a reading lamp. Today, modern options are still used for comfort, but they're also used in the décor of our home.
As the Industrial Revolution began to pick up speed in the late eighteen century, weaving of fabrics changed dramatically. The fabric weaving quickly moved from a cottage industry to mass production. Eventually, the cost for fabric dropped and new uses for it grew. It was in this time when the settee was replaced by the fully upholstered couch, or sofa. This is when they became less important, and were pushed to the wall.
