If you're unfamiliar with sofa tables, let's review them briefly. Created in the 18th century, sofa tables are a tall, thing and long table. They are about two-thirds the length of the sofa and the top comes up to the edge of the back of the sofa, and ideally, just a little bit lower.
Quality. As with all furniture, quality is always important. In most cases, a solid wood sofa table will be the best choice. However, some decors lend themselves to a metal table instead. Whichever style you prefer, just make sure that you look at the tables in a store. Always avoid purchasing a table over the internet unless you have seen the exact same style and brand in a store. The only way to truly test quality is to see the table in the store. This also goes for various brands. It is not uncommon for different manufacturers to make tables that resemble those made by well-known companies. Unfortunately, these copies are often not of as good quality as the originals, and then shoppers are taken unaware. Ultimately, if the brand name is one you trust, and you have seen the table in a store and taken the time to examine it carefully, then the table is most likely a good quality table. After all, companies don't become well-known for quality furniture by making junk.
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.
Home decorating, whether it's for the first time or you're redecorating, can be a lot of fun. As hard as it may be to believe, it can be even more fun if you're on a budget. This makes it more challenging to find the perfect piece to give your room the look you want to portray.
As with an accent table, console and sofa tables don't have to match the other tables in your room. They can of course, but they don't have to. Instead, you can go for a statement piece, choosing something just a little more ornate or embellished to draw attention to it. These tables are designed with this in mind and even though you may find a wallflower or two in the bunch, chances are good that you'll be able to find a table with lots of personality, whether you want something chic and modern or classic and timeless for your home.
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.
