LUSTING AFTER: SOFA TABLES

 My friend is in the midst of decorating her living room and asked me about accessorizing her sofa table. I love a well decorated sofa table. And did you know they can be very functional pieces of furniture?

I never like to situate the back of a sofa right at the entry of a room because it can seem a bit unwelcoming. However, sometimes, the shape of the room won't allow for the sofa to go anywhere else. In that case, the addition of a table, placed behind the sofa, makes it much more interesting to view when you walk into the room.

They are also great for incorporating extra storage in a room.

Sofa tables can also be used as room dividers or to create two different areas in one room.

I also love when sofa tables are used for more than one function, like a desk and a room divider.

Many times the sofa table is used solely for decorative purposes. It can be used to display lighting, family photos, books, and decorative accessories (or "dust collectors", as my mother would say).

Here's a sofa table that I decorated with some of my favorite accessories.
