Regardless of where contemporary sofa tables come from, you're going to love what they do for your living room. You and your family will love the intriguing design and sleek look of these practical tables. The geometric lines in their shape will give your home an elegant look. In addition, you'll find storage shelves on many of them, which will give you additional space to display those beautiful works of art or family portraits.
With a simple makeover, you can turn these wallflowers into a real showpiece in the home, letting it shine front and center, right along with your other primary furnishings.
Once you decide on a color for your walls, you can get a sofa that goes with it and blends well. Very seldom do people get just a sofa, however. They usually purchase a set consisting of a sofa, loveseat and chair or recliner. Many chose to go with a sectional, which will allow them plenty of sitting room, too. Although the walls and the sofa are the most important part of your living room, they are far from everything. In fact, you'll consider a living room with only a sofa or sofa set as quite incomplete. The accessories you chose will be what will make or break your room décor.
The height of the table is crucial as it should not be higher than the back of the sofa, so check this carefully before you buy. The depth of the table is also important. Many are made in the style of console tables and will be no more than 18 inches wide. Rounded (sometimes known as demi-lune) sofa tables are charming in the right place, but the center width can prove to be a problem. If possible, plan to have a gap of at least 30 inches between your sofa table and the nearest piece of furniture. On no account should the table be wider or higher than the sofa.
The more plain sofa tables are meant to be put up against a wall and offer a little more counter area behind a sofa. But, others are ornate and dressy, meant to be shown off. These are tables that should be set out in an open area of the room with the sofa up against one side of them, but the other side open to be seen by all who pass by.
- 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.
