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.
Renters often look for the same qualities, but also want things that can be affordable as well as decorative and attractive. They may not be renting their home for a long time so they want things that can be moved easily. Even with this in mind, they can choose from a large selection of pieces including sofas, lighting fixtures, sofa tables, wall hangings, etc. When choosing your living room furniture, think it out carefully. You want to consider the size of your room as well as what style you are looking for. Size needs to be a consideration when renting. If you purchase something that's large, you may be limited as to what kind of apartment you can rent in the future. Although items like sofa tables won't present too much of a problem, the size of sofa and beds you choose needs to be considered.
Sofa tables are regarded as prime necessity and are common pieces of accent furniture for all homes. But, the sofa tables we know today come from a long history of development.
With a simple makeover, you can turn these wallflowers into a real showpiece in the home, letting it shine front and center, right along with your other primary furnishings.
- 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.
Many of the sofa tables you see today have gotten their origin from the Pembroke table of years past. This table had a drop leaf section, which allowed you to make it small or large, depending on your needs. One or two drawers is another feature characteristic of the Pembroke, This is also seen in many modern sofa tables today. The Pembroke was used as a functional table as well as a decorative one.
Some people wonder if they can really put a sofa table into their living room, and it's not about the money. They think there isn't enough space in their living room because they have a small floor plan. This is actually a time when sofa tables shine. Since they are right up against the sofa they take up less space than using a coffee table would, since there does not have to be room to move around the table.
