So just what are sofa tables?
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. Do you give up your hopes of entertaining your friends until you can afford a larger home? You can rest assured that there are other options for you and your guests. First, your guests are going to be more concerned with spending time with you than they are the size of your home. Secondly, you do have options available to you. Sofa or console tables are the perfect option for your small home.
Sofa tables are regarded as prime necessity and are common pieces of accent furniture for all homes. But, the sofa tables we know today come from a long history of development.
The main pieces of your living room are going to be your sofa, tables and lamps. Although some people prefer to use a ceiling light or hanging lights as opposed to lamps, you may want a small lamp that serves as an additional lighting fixture as well as adding a warm atmosphere to the furnishings. For instance, a small lamp sitting on contemporary sofa tables next to a chair provide a warm inviting atmosphere in your home. Guests will automatically gravitate towards that chair. It's also a great place to kick back with a good book.
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.
- 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.
