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.
Usually accent tables are meant to hold decorative pieces, although it isn't a bad idea to look for a sofa table that also has a little bit of storage. Baskets make for very efficient storage, and they often accent the table as well. Some sofa tables also come with small baskets that fit perfectly into the shelves, so there is no need to purchase baskets separately.
Sofa tables have been around for hundreds of years and continue to be almost a necessity in your living room. They come in a variety of colors, styles and sizes. They're made to go in almost any room décor. They can also make or break the final look in your decorating scheme. In addition to being a beautiful addition to your living room, sofa tables are functional and versatile enough to be used in other rooms as well.
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.
When you begin your home decorating project, you'll find yourself looking at many different styles and designs of furniture. Many women that design their homes aren't familiar with certain terms like "contemporary sofa tables". They know what they like, but aren't always familiar with the terms used to describe them. You see, what you believe are tall coffee tables, may be referred to in the furniture world as contemporary sofa tables. Don't feel alone when this happens.
If you love entertaining guests but live in a small apartment, what do you do? You want to have a small dinner party but don't have the table space to seat them all.
