A console sofa table is a practical piece of furniture that is usually placed along the back of a sofa. This elegant table enhances the décor of any casual or formal living area with its sleek design and warm finish. Sofa tables can also feature storage areas such as open spaces, enclosed spaces with doors and drawers. In order to complement a sofa, the table needs to be taller than other accent tables in the room. In spite of its name, a sofa table is not limited to placement with a sofa. It is quite versatile and can be used in a variety of different areas. The dining room is a great place for sofa tables. Use one as a sideboard for unique serving dishes or for holding a basket or bowl of fresh fruit. These versatile tables make an great impression when covered with green plants or placed underneath a massive beveled-glass mirror.
