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 have your sofa up against the wall, consider pulling it out a bit and adding a sofa table between it and the wall. This can make your room feel a bit more spacious and you can use the table to display family photos, souvenirs, antiques or a spray of fresh of silk flowers.
The more plain sofa tables are meant to be put up against a wall and offer a little more counter area behind a sofa. But, others are ornate and dressy, meant to be shown off. These are tables that should be set out in an open area of the room with the sofa up against one side of them, but the other side open to be seen by all who pass by.
So just what are sofa tables?
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.
The rising cost of homes and home ownership has caused many first time buyers to settle for a much smaller home if they're even able to purchase a home. In other situations, couples are forced to rent a small apartment or house until they can afford something larger. These small homes do not leave them much room for anything more than what's necessary in furniture. The development of sofa tables has made it possible for families to have stylish furniture while being able to make the most out of their living space. These tables are far from basic in design, but are available in many different designs and colors. Almost any interior design style you'll have in your home can be complemented with modern sofa tables.
