Color is an important feature in home decorating. You want colors that will blend nicely with each other. Soft neutral colors like beige or sand mix well with almost any style or design of furniture. The addition of one or a few of them will give your room a completed look. Contemporary sofa tables work perfectly if you have a small wall that you don't know what to do with. This can be the perfect spot to display your favorite items. Many contemporary sofa tables look similar to a desk, with the top shelf and shelves on the side, with the bottom being open and ready for a chair. This appearance is what contributes to their beauty and functionality. You can find these fully assembled or needing minor assemblies as well.
- Length - It doesn't get any tackier than looking at a sofa table that sticks out past one end of the sofa. It looks like someone wasn't paying attention to the details of fitting furniture together. And that's probably exactly what happened. Instead of trying to figure out a way to cover up ill-fitting furniture after the fact, take the time to measure the length of your sofa and make sure that the table will fit well within its limitations. It's OK for a table to be a little short, but having it stick out past the sofa is not going to look right.
The sofa tables which originated during the late seventeen and early eighteen hundreds were very much intentional. The upholstered sofa did not appear at that time as we can see today. The settee was the standard before that period, which would be paired with a sofa table.
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.
Console tables are another version of the modern sofa tables you see in many homes. These are perfect for the home that isn't perfectly square. If you have any nooks or crannies that you don't know what to do with, a console table will perfectly fill up that space. Put a live plant or statue on top and you have the perfect addition to your great room.
Today, console and sofa tables are virtually interchangeable in the home, giving you more design options than ever. If you want to add a table in a hall, for example, you can go with a traditional console table, but you may want to look at sofa tables as well, especially if you're looking for a specific shape or style.
