It’s sort of become common knowledge that for an interior makeover to be considered a success, one has to ensure there’s a focal point in a room, and that focal point in the living room is the sofa. Having this in mind, it’s not surprising we spend a great deal of time considering the kind of sofa we should buy, minding its style, and materials it’s made of, to bring just as much stylishness as comfort, meanwhile the table comes as an afterthought.
Though many could opt to go without a table, it can define the interior so much more, complementing the sofa, serving for holding drinks, food, books, magazines, frames, candles… you name it – the table is a versatile piece of furniture! Furthermore, the options of designer tables are vast, so you can count on a successful purchase that your budget, and taste would approve.
Since the materials the designer tables can be found in, as well as the designs, are versatile, from plywood, to glass, and stainless steel, in rectangular, circular shapes, it’s important to take some time to consider certain aspects, so you can make the right choice, starting from the size, more specifically the height of the table.
Since it’s to be paired with the sofa, you have to take the sofa’s height as the guide, making sure the table is in the same height as it (i.e. as the seating area), or at least just below the height of the arms. As for armless sofas, the table should be at the height of where arms would be. This aspect is crucial to make it easy to reach objects of the table, ensuring comfort.
When it’s the case with a spacious area that allows bigger sofa, or even the addition of two, you can use a bigger coffee table logically, but you can also take it a step further and spice things up with two coffee tables. Matching ones are sure to bring the vibrancy your living room needs to get the warmer look.
When it comes to colours, you can count on a cosier look with the help of earthy natural tones of wood, whereas the glass and stainless steel are ideal for interiors where you don’t want to put the focus on the table but rather have it blend in with the surroundings.
Then again, you can always add the charms of fabrics, and let their texture and design add a contrast in the décor. Fruits and books can be your final touch to throwing in some distinct charm and colour.
