Accent tables are another choice of modern sofa tables. These are just what the name implies. They don't have to be used for any purpose other than to accent your room and give it a touch of elegance. They are great stand-alone tables. These unique tables come in a variety of colors, sizes, styles and shapes. You can also find them in discount stores, retail stores as well as furniture stores.
If you haven't used them before, traditional sofa tables are tables that are meant to fit right up behind the sofas in your home to offer another counter space.
In modern homes, this sort of table is especially useful in open plan spaces; they add style and can sometimes perform a double function. Sofa tables with shelves can display books and ornaments, while those with drawers can be a useful place to store the usual mass of remote controls.
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.
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.
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.
