Unlike most end or console tables that are used for storage or beverages, modern sofa tables are usually for decorative purposes.

Most people forget to measure before they buy furniture, and then they get the piece in their home and realize that it is either too big or too small. Measuring the back of the sofa is very important so that you do not buy a table that is too long or too short for the couch. Also remember to measure the height of the back of the sofa. Try to find a table that is just below the height of the back of the couch. This will make the table look like it certainly does belong there and might even be part of the sofa itself. It will also help a lot to measure how much width you can give to the sofa table. This will ensure that you do not buy one that will stick out too far into the walking space behind the couch.

The very word console means ledge, and these tables were inspired by the desire to have a shelf in a convenient location, especially in a hallway. Designers simply added legs to give them more stability as well as drama.

In most cases, a solid wood sofa table will be the best choice. However, some decors lend themselves to a metal table instead. Whichever style you prefer, just make sure that you look at the tables in a store. Always avoid purchasing a table over the internet unless you have seen the exact same style and brand in a store. The only way to truly test quality is to see the table in the store. This also goes for various brands. It is not uncommon for different manufacturers to make tables that resemble those made by well-known companies. Unfortunately, these copies are often not of as good quality as the originals, and then shoppers are taken unaware. Ultimately, if the brand name is one you trust, and you have seen the table in a store and taken the time to examine it carefully, then the table is most likely a good quality table. After all, companies don't become well-known for quality furniture by making junk.

Depending on what style you prefer, you may like a table that blends into the back of your sofa. If so, then look for a table that is roughly the same color as your sofa. If you prefer accents, then look for a table that will have a very dramatic effect when placed along the back of your sofa. Just make sure that you don't mix contemporary with traditional styles or modern with antique. Remember that the back of your couch is an important part of the display that will become part of your sofa table after it is in place.
