The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
When people think of side tables, they always seem to refer to end tables; which is not the case. Side tables are tables that can be placed anywhere in your home, such as bedroom, living room, office, and many more. The possibilities are endless when it comes to these beautiful pieces of furniture.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
These types are also considered as very much ideal for people who appreciate the heritage and value of Mahogany side table. Such items can always be placed in a corner where they might not get scratched. There are also chances that you get a side table that is of new style but has been intentionally aged to offer it an antique looks. These are always one of the best choices for people who like antiques but do not have enough money to spend on them.
Glass Side Tables. Many people choose glass side tables as the perfect accents to their homes. They can well be as long as they are well taken care of.
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.
