If you are putting sofa tables against a wall, as in between the sofa and the wall, chances are they just have a few purposes – to hold things and to possibly be a place to put a lamp that can light over your shoulder.
When it comes to choosing this type of sofa tables for your living room you really have only a few things to consider – what the top and sides look like. Since the two longest sides of the table are going to be covered by the wall and the sofa, you don’t have to care what those spaces look like. The only thing you have to worry about in this respect is that if it is an ornate piece that it will not push out too much where you cannot put it up against the wall and sofa as you would like.
If you do get a table with leaves, be sure you leave them in the table for much of the year so that they don’t age at a different rate, leaving you with odd stripes in your table that look newer than the rest of the table.
A final benefit of small tables as accent pieces is that you can use more of them without the space seeming cluttered up. This is a great thing to know when you are decorating the room. It is usually in the small accents like lights, pieces of art and other items that are displayed around the room that the impact is made. Well, the smaller the tables you are using to hold these features, the more of them you can use and the more complete the room will look.
Round tables are perfect for a big family gathering where all the cousins meet after months and want to catch up on the family gossip. You can have wooden ones that look good with almost any genre of home décor. The plastic resin topped ones are convenient to maintain since they resist stains of all kind and only require wiping with wet cloth. Glass round tables are slightly more formal and stylish in looks. But they look great.
Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to style is the fact that some tables are extremely trendy for a short period of time, while others have a very classic look that will stay in style for years to come. Just remember that console tables, especially those in the entryway of your home, are often the first piece of furniture visitors will notice. This means it is much better to purchase a classic-looking table rather than a trendy one that will be out of style in a year or two.

They are meant to provide a table top or additional storage space in a small area where there is not a lot of room.

If you get a set with padded chairs be sure that the material is stain resistant. Nothing’s worse than having a big soiree spoiled because someone accidentally spilled red wine on your off-white cushions. If you want to keep your chairs looking new for as long as possible, consider leather-covered cushions or just go with all wood instead. While they may seem less comfortable, they will last much longer and you never have to worry about dealing with stained chairs or embarrassed guests.
