If you have your sofa up against the wall, consider pulling it out a bit and adding a sofa table between it and the wall. This can make your room feel a bit more spacious and you can use the table to display family photos, souvenirs, antiques or a spray of fresh of silk flowers.
Modern sofa or console tables are probably the most commonly chosen style today. They are made to be durable, functional and very attractive. You'll find them in modern, baroque and contemporary styles to name just a few. Modern sofa tables are no longer used for decoration behind the sofa. Today they are used in many rooms of the house and serve a variety of purposes.
Home decorating, whether it's for the first time or you're redecorating, can be a lot of fun. As hard as it may be to believe, it can be even more fun if you're on a budget. This makes it more challenging to find the perfect piece to give your room the look you want to portray.
This is a day and age where people enjoy the look of wood or wood products. Many of the modern sofa tables are made of different types of wood. Although they're found in many styles, you'll still see the traditional ones with one or two drawers. These are great for storage of small items or are used for the traditional "junk drawer".
Another important thing to keep in mind when looking at sofa tables to blend in with your sofa is the style. Color is probably the most important thing, but a contemporary table against the back of an antique sofa just won't mesh. Always try to keep your furniture pieces all from the same sort of style, especially when you are looking for pieces to blend. This will ensure that the table does not look out of place behind your sofa.
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.
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.
