Sofas play an important role as a piece of furniture providing comfort to the people sitting and elegance to the room’s decor. Another useful piece of furniture which complements the sofa is a sofa table. It is generally placed at the back side of sofa to keep valuable decorative pieces like lamps and flower pots etc and could also be used to place anything in hand while one is comfortably seating on a sofa. It is mostly long in length and short in breadth, the height is almost similar to the height of the back rest of the sofa.
They are mostly rectangular in shapes however, in large spaces oval shaped tables also look very graceful. A famous variety of such tables are accent table. It works as an opposing force, for example, if the back of the sofa is dark brown or black, it can be accented with a gold or light oak table. Such contrasts give a more dramatic look to the space. Usually these Sofa Tables hold decorative pieces.
