Tables that sit behind sofas are called various names, including sofa tables, console tables and hall tables. The tables are about as tall as the back of a couch, serve a plethora of aesthetic and functional purposes. What is the difference between a console table and a sofa table? The terms describe the same basic piece of furniture; console tables are traditionally placed against walls as in Foyers or Hallways. Sofa tables are traditionally placed behind sofas as in Living Rooms, Family Rooms and Libraries.
Homes with open floor plans typically use sofa tables as a divider between rooms. When sofa placement leaves the back of the piece visible, sofa tables do a beautiful job finishing the look of your space while providing a place to displaying decorative items, plus many offer room for storage. Sofa tables should be no taller than the height the sofa back. As for size, can be anywhere from half the length to nearly the full length of the sofa (making sure to allow at least 6 inches from either end).
Choosing reading lamps with a height between 26 and 30 inches. When placing two lamps on the sofa table, choose either a matching pair or lamps with similar shape or size. Pairing lamps with a height difference of less than two inches. If you have empty space between the wall and your furniture, a sofa table is a great option! When the back of your sofa is facing an open area of your home, a sofa table can make the space feel more put together by blending the two rooms!
