First, decide on the focal point in your living room. Whether it's the TV, a piece of art, large glass windows, or any other item, you should put your sofa parallel to that focus piece.
If your room is in a feminine style, a curved or ornate table could well be ideal. If your style is more masculine, simple shapes are more appropriate.
If you haven't used them before, traditional sofa tables are tables that are meant to fit right up behind the sofas in your home to offer another counter space.
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.
- 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.
Many of the sofa tables you see today have gotten their origin from the Pembroke table of years past. This table had a drop leaf section, which allowed you to make it small or large, depending on your needs. One or two drawers is another feature characteristic of the Pembroke, This is also seen in many modern sofa tables today. The Pembroke was used as a functional table as well as a decorative one.
