As the Industrial Revolution began to pick up speed in the late eighteen century, weaving of fabrics changed dramatically. The fabric weaving quickly moved from a cottage industry to mass production. Eventually, the cost for fabric dropped and new uses for it grew. It was in this time when the settee was replaced by the fully upholstered couch, or sofa. This is when they became less important, and were pushed to the wall.
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.
The main pieces of your living room are going to be your sofa, tables and lamps. Although some people prefer to use a ceiling light or hanging lights as opposed to lamps, you may want a small lamp that serves as an additional lighting fixture as well as adding a warm atmosphere to the furnishings. For instance, a small lamp sitting on contemporary sofa tables next to a chair provide a warm inviting atmosphere in your home. Guests will automatically gravitate towards that chair. It's also a great place to kick back with a good book.
For example, let's go with a romantic theme. You can start with a lace doily, runner or tablecloth for your sofa tables. If you want to go with a romantic turn of the century look, add a kerosene lamp to the table and perhaps an antique stereoscope with a few image cards placed under it. A couple old books in a stack can also be a nice touch.
If you own your home, you're probably planning to stay there for a while, so you aren't as limited with your choices. The sofa will be the biggest purchase in your living room. Besides the wall colors, it will be the part that everything else will center around. In other words, you won't be getting a sofa that goes well with your accessories, but rather your accessories need to blend with your sofa and walls. The most common accessories for your living room are lighting fixtures, wall hangings and sofa tables.
They are loosely defined as any table near a sofa and were considered to a number of different tables. As we know, a sofa table is generally found at the back of the sofa these days. Modern ones serve more as a decorative piece, usually having a narrow and long appearance. They usually are available in various styles from contemporary to baroque.
