Why should coffee tables get all the attention? Give the space behind your sofa a little decorating love with these easy tips.
1. Mind the lamp
Instead of matching lamps on both ends of the table, offset one lamp with a vase of equal heft and size. When choosing a sofa table, make certain to keep height in mind – a console table as tall as your sofa keeps lamplight shining down on reading material and everything within arm’s reach.
2. Add interest
Add more interest and depth to your front room with a sofa table. A dark, modern style like this from Furniture Adda draws your eye in with the contrast in color from the brilliant white sofa. The addition of the piece also adds another layer of decoration and makes the entire room more put together and visually interesting.
3. It’s inviting
The living room can sometimes feel disintegrated, but a sofa table can act as a welcoming element to guests. Use the tabletop as a display space for a fruit basket or your favorite coffee table books. The matching metal vases on this table add a symmetrical element to the eclectic space.
The sofa table can be good for additional storage. For extra storage, add baskets under the console table to neatly store throws and extra cushions. When selecting your baskets, keep the height and width of your table in mind to ensure a proper fit.
5. Extra Seating
Take full advantage of the practicality of sofa tables, especially when you’re having guests over. If you are having a large gathering at your home, you are going to need all the seating you can get. Under the table is a convenient place to tuck stools or ottomans for guests to pull out when needed.
6. Plenty of display space
Give yourself more places to display favorite books and decorative accents by adding a sofa table. Here, this living room is symmetrically balanced, and the sofa table echoes the true focal point in the center. The contrast between the rich wood finish and stark decorations helps to make the objects stand out.
7. Fill empty space
One of the most basic uses for sofa tables is to fill space. Without a sofa table, a room may have large areas that turn into dead space. Here, the additional table helps to continue the color story throughout the room and allows for more personalization with decorating.
