Materials and Use. The type of material that the sofa tables are made out of is also very important, both for durability and for the type of look you want to create. The material can be used to make the table blend into the back of the sofa or actually cause it to stand out, more as an accent piece. Shoppers should think about how they want to use the table also because this can affect whether it is an accent piece or one that blends into the couch. An accent piece can be used to set off a very nice decorative element like a piece of crystal or a vase with flowers in it. However, a table that will be used for books, magazines, and whatever else is lying around might look better if it blended into the back of the sofa.
Sofa tables work in two different ways. They can either be selected to blend in with the back of the sofa, or they can set it off as an accent feature. Either way you go, it is very important to remember that the back of the sofa is extremely important when you are looking for these tables. Most people do not spend much time looking at the back of their sofas, and they forget to check it out before they go shopping. Just take a good long look at how the sofa backs up to the other space and determine the best way to approach it. Don't forget to measure the length and height of the sofa before shopping. This will ensure that the tables you look at aren't too big or too small for the sofa you have. Once you have your measurements, then it's time to start looking at tables.
Each of the rooms in our home has a purpose. Although we spend a certain amount of time in each room, the rooms we spend the most time in are the living room or family room. The family or living room is often called the great room and we want it to look great. It's where we spend time kicking back as a family watching TV, reading, playing games or entertaining guests. When guests come into the great room, we want our styles and feelings to be reflected in our furnishings. Simply put, we want a room we can proudly display to our guests. We want this room to be a room where everyone feels comfortable and welcome.
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.
For some time after this, sofa tables made a move, to the wall. They were pushed back, away from sight, between the wall and the back of the sofa. It was during this time that their design and style took a dip. No longer was it important for them to be icons of beauty, as no one would see them.
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.
