Sofa tables are elegant pieces of furniture designed to occupy a small space and yet carry the ornament for a room. Sofa and table should be in harmony; together they bring a sense of refinement to any interior.
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.
Features. The type of use that will be good for the table will also affect what kind of features it has. Some tables have drawers, others have shelves, and still others have other types of storage. Some tables have no storage at all, while some even come with baskets that fit into the shelves. Taking into consideration what kinds of things you plan to set on the table and put in it is an important part of selecting the right one.
A sofa table is meant to sit along the back of a sofa. Usually people who purchase a sofa table have their sofas backing up into another room, so instead of the back of a sofa, a table is the focal point of an open space. Most sofa tables are long and thin, and they may be in the shape of a long rectangle or have a half circle shape. Some tables have only shelves, while others have drawers, and still others have some combination of shelves and drawers.
If you are on a budget, you don't have to spend a fortune to have a great living room setting with a sofa table involved. Sofa tables can range in price from a hundred dollars or so to thousands of dollars. While you may like the ones that cost thousands, you may have to make due with a couple hundred-dollar budget. Here's how to make it work.
Console and sofa tables work particularly well in a long hall or at the top of a stairway. You can also use them at an entryway in place of an accent table. If you use them in the entryway or at the end of a hall, you may want to consider adding a mirror above the table so guests can check their hair, makeup and lipstick before heading out.
