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.
If your room is in a feminine style, a curved or ornate table could well be ideal. If your style is more masculine, simple shapes are more appropriate.
Candles are always a great choice for this table. You can go with a couple of large candles or a single candelabra to draw the eye and anchor the space. Hurricane lamps work particularly well for this kind of table, as does a large spray of flowers. If you've noticed a theme here, it is to use something tall on the table so that it rises above the back of the sofa, dominating the space.
During this time, the fireplace was both the focus and center of the room, so the sofa or settee was often located near the fireplace. The purpose of this was for both warmth and light. Sofa tables, at that time, were behind the sofa as they were narrow and long like the sofas and settees. They are still used this way today. Unlike most end or console tables that are used for storage or beverages, modern sofa tables are usually for decorative purposes.
The rising cost of homes and home ownership has caused many first time buyers to settle for a much smaller home if they're even able to purchase a home. In other situations, couples are forced to rent a small apartment or house until they can afford something larger. These small homes do not leave them much room for anything more than what's necessary in furniture. The development of sofa tables has made it possible for families to have stylish furniture while being able to make the most out of their living space. These tables are far from basic in design, but are available in many different designs and colors. Almost any interior design style you'll have in your home can be complemented with modern sofa tables.
Sofa tables are regarded as prime necessity and are common pieces of accent furniture for all homes. But, the sofa tables we know today come from a long history of development.
Don't let the small size of your home make you think you can't have attractive furnishing to entertain your guests. With the many sofa and console tables available, your guests will be comfortable and you'll have a home you can feel pride in.
