If space is at a premium, you may want to consider nesting tables or side tables where the top can be locked in an upright position so it sits flush against the wall. It can then be lowered and used while entertaining, but remain out of the way the rest of the time. Some side tables are also stackable, so you can create a multi-tiered shelf-like arrangement that can be used to display knickknacks most of the time but be pressed into service during a party or the holidays when every inch of table space is at a premium.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.

Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
