When you start with your home decoration project you will surely find yourself looking at a number of different designs and styles in furniture alone. Most of the women who design their house are not familiar with a few terms such as modern or contemporary sofa table. These women just know what they like for their house but are not always familiar with these terms and what they mean when it comes to interior decor and home redesign projects. Normally, what you believe is just tall coffee tables might not be referred to as coffee tables in furniture business as they could even be contemporary sofa tables. However you don't need to feel along in understanding types of furniture as this can happen to anyone.
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.
Function. A sofa table should also be very functional. Before you go shopping, think about what you might use it for. If the table is merely to display decorative items on, then keep that in mind. Some tables also employ very stylistic elements that allow for additional function. One very popular style right now is the sofa table that has baskets underneath. Baskets add some much-needed texture to a room while still allowing for additional storage. Unlike drawers, baskets can be easily removed and taken somewhere else in the house. They are a great place to store small toys or blocks for children. Then when company comes over, just scoop up the blocks and stow them away in the baskets.
Candles are always a great choice for this table. You can go with a couple of large candles or a single candelabra to draw the eye and anchor the space. Hurricane lamps work particularly well for this kind of table, as does a large spray of flowers. If you've noticed a theme here, it is to use something tall on the table so that it rises above the back of the sofa, dominating the space.
Because so many couples and families are in smaller homes requiring smaller but practical furnishings, name brand furniture manufacturers are getting involved in making the type, size and style of furniture needed. There's not a problem with getting designs to match your current home décor as sofa tables are made in woods, metals and glass that will match any fabrics that may have been used in your sofa. If you can't find what you need to match your home, you may consider have one custom made. This is always a very popular option.
A sofa table is tall and thin, and typically used behind a sofa, hence the name. On average, they are 30-32 inches high, 14-18 inches deep and 48-55 inches long. This table type is most useful in a large room where the seating area is divided from the rest, and can be used in several configurations. The classic English country house interior centers around a seating area, usually around a fireplace; two sofas are placed facing each other and at right angles to the fire; behind each sofa is a sofa table. A coffee table, or large ottoman, sits between the sofas.
