While it may seem there are a lot of details to note before purchasing a sofa or console table, you need to remember this is a larger furniture purchase. The price can be substantial, and it's important to make sure you will be completely happy with the purchase once you bring the piece home.
Now you get to dress it up. While you don't want it to be the center of attention, you also don't want the table to stand out as being an ugly and unloved piece of furniture with no decoration. Find items that accent the rest of your room or are useful in this space. If you will be doing reading or need a little extra light in the room, this may be a great place for a table lamp. Otherwise, a vase, statue or even some books can fill some of the tabletop area.
Accent Tables. Sofa tables that are meant to be accent tables will work as a sort of opposing force to the back of the sofa. For example, a black or dark brown sofa might be accented with a gold or light oak sofa table. The effect is even more dramatic when pairing colors like red and black, black and white, or any other dramatic colors together.
- Function - if you aren't planning to put your sofa table against the wall with the sofa in front of it, can it serve an extra function? Many are set in the middle of the room with a sofa on one side, and open access to the other side. This is a great space for extra storage. Look for a table with drawers, shelves, and other amenities you can put to use.
Regardless of how many rooms you have in your home, the living room is probably the most important of them. The living room is where you, as a family, spend most of your time relaxing, watching TV or just bonding. It's also the room where you entertain your guests. The living room is definitely the room that requires the most furnishing and decorating ideas. The way you chose to decorate your living room will say a lot about you and the way your friends will see you. Will it be stiff and formal or relaxed and casual? The most important part of your living room decorating will be your walls and your sofa.
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.
