Not only does this positioning create a nice visual flow in the room, the table is within easy reach for setting a drink down or turning on a lamp. Standard sofa arm heights can range between 24 and 32 inches, so get out your measuring tape.
You might want to offset the soft edges and visual texture with a more clean, streamlined design.
Next, something as subtle as table shape can make a huge difference in the look of your room.
If you think you need extra storage space for remotes, games, tablets, books or magazines, look for a table with drawers or open shelves. Also, make sure your end table has enough surface area for accessories like lamps, coasters, and other decorative accents.
If you’re worried about layering multiple side tables, remember that there’s no law that says the style, shape or finish has to match. In fact, we prefer a more mismatched, collected look for extra depth, dimension, and personality.
Whatever side table you end up with, we know you’ll love the finishing touch and polish it adds to your room. Check out our YouTube channel or read these related posts to learn more:
