The furniture we choose for the great room will reflect a lot about us. Try to make your furniture tell a story about the kind of home you have. Modern furniture such as sofas and modern sofa tables can make a room look beautiful all by themselves. Since they have first come out hundreds of years ago, they've been there for our comfort. They used to be used when the family members sat next to the hearth and read. They were used for warmth next to the fireplace as well as a place to situate a reading lamp. Today, modern options are still used for comfort, but they're also used in the décor of our home.
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.
Another important thing to keep in mind when looking at sofa tables to blend in with your sofa is the style. Color is probably the most important thing, but a contemporary table against the back of an antique sofa just won't mesh. Always try to keep your furniture pieces all from the same sort of style, especially when you are looking for pieces to blend. This will ensure that the table does not look out of place behind your sofa.
If you're unfamiliar with sofa tables, let's review them briefly. Created in the 18th century, sofa tables are a tall, thing and long table. They are about two-thirds the length of the sofa and the top comes up to the edge of the back of the sofa, and ideally, just a little bit lower.
Once used solely to back a sofa to soften its harsh lines a bit, the sofa table is a great choice for today's homeowners, largely because it adds additional table space without taking up a lot of room.
- Depth - if you have a smaller living room, this is going to be very important, a deep sofa table will make your sofa stick out more into the room, and will eat up more floor space. If you are already limited by floor space you may well be making this room feel much more cramped by adding this piece of furniture.
