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.
A lot of people just leave their sofa tables a blank canvas. Perhaps they put a lamp there, or a photo or two, or to accent the fireplace and mantle. But there's so much more you can do with sofa tables. You can help set the tone of the entire room with the right décor or setting. You can create something that's very romantic, timeless, rustic or even exotic. The choice is really yours.
Coffee tables are a very common style of sofa tables. These modern sofa tables should be chosen carefully. Don't assume because it's a name brand that it's going to be perfect for your great room. Choose the size as carefully as you choose the style and color. The color should blend well with your furniture, so choose neutral colors unless they're wood, which goes with almost anything. If the coffee table is used for coffee or appearance, the height won't really matter. However, if you'll be using it to rest your feet, consider that height and make sure it's tall enough.
The height of the table is crucial as it should not be higher than the back of the sofa, so check this carefully before you buy. The depth of the table is also important. Many are made in the style of console tables and will be no more than 18 inches wide. Rounded (sometimes known as demi-lune) sofa tables are charming in the right place, but the center width can prove to be a problem. If possible, plan to have a gap of at least 30 inches between your sofa table and the nearest piece of furniture. On no account should the table be wider or higher than the sofa.
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.
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.
