When you are thinking about a theme, you can start with what is going on in the rest of the room. If you already have a theme, then you want your sofa tables to pick up these influences. You can do this through color, texture, pattern or material.
Sofa tables are elegant pieces of furniture designed to occupy a small space and yet carry the ornament for a room. Sofa and table should be in harmony; together they bring a sense of refinement to any interior.
Sofa tables are the perfect answer to a much-needed accent in some spaces. A perfect example of a space where a sofa table is needed is when a couch backs up to another space. For example, a sofa that faces the television but works as a sort of divider between the family room and a dining room or entryway could really use these tables.
Sofa tables began appearing around the seventeen hundreds, and like settees, they were known for their high features. Their popularity spread among all classes of people.
Style. One of the most important features of a sofa table is style. This is because the table must actually complement the back of the sofa. Many people forget to take into account the way the back of their sofa looks when they are shopping for a table to place along the back. Depending on what style you prefer, you may like a table that blends into the back of your sofa. If so, then look for a table that is roughly the same color as your sofa. If you prefer accents, then look for a table that will have a very dramatic effect when placed along the back of your sofa. Just make sure that you don't mix contemporary with traditional styles or modern with antique. Remember that the back of your couch is an important part of the display that will become part of your sofa table after it is in place.
As the Industrial Revolution began to pick up speed in the late eighteen century, weaving of fabrics changed dramatically. The fabric weaving quickly moved from a cottage industry to mass production. Eventually, the cost for fabric dropped and new uses for it grew. It was in this time when the settee was replaced by the fully upholstered couch, or sofa. This is when they became less important, and were pushed to the wall.
