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.
Some people wonder if they can really put a sofa table into their living room, and it's not about the money. They think there isn't enough space in their living room because they have a small floor plan. This is actually a time when sofa tables shine. Since they are right up against the sofa they take up less space than using a coffee table would, since there does not have to be room to move around the table.
The sofa is the most important piece of furniture in our living room. Yet, a modern living room or great room without modern sofa tables would still look very bare with just a sofa, regardless of how beautiful the sofa looked. These furnishing add something very special and unique to the overall appearance of the great room or living room. Fortunately, for the home decorator, they come in many different varieties and styles. They are also referred by many different names.
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.
Console tables are another version of the modern sofa tables you see in many homes. These are perfect for the home that isn't perfectly square. If you have any nooks or crannies that you don't know what to do with, a console table will perfectly fill up that space. Put a live plant or statue on top and you have the perfect addition to your great room.
- Height - Another important consideration to make is the height of your sofa or console table. You don't want the table to stick up way over the sofa, nor do you want to have to reach way down over the back of the sofa to get to it. Instead you need to try and make sure the table matches the height of the sofa. A way to figure out what range you have to work with is to sit on your sofa and reach over behind you, as if you were to retrieve something from the table. How far can you reach before it seems awkward? Usually it's just a few inches below the top before it starts to feel uncomfortable. Take this measurement into account when shopping.
