Sofa Tables and Console Tables Buying Guide

There is little difference between a sofa table and a console table. In fact, the term is used to refer to the same thing: a tall, shallow table that is pushed against a wall or the back of a sofa. When console tables originated, many were designed with just two front legs, and they attached to the wall at the back. These styles still exist, but they are not very common.

Types of Sofa Tables and Console Tables

Types of Sofa Tables and Console Tables

A sofa table or console table is a common sight in entry halls and lobbies. The tables don't eat up valuable floor space or impede the flow of traffic. These qualities also make them handy in a living room, where they are most often used to hold table lamps against a wall or the back of a sofa. Here are the types you should consider for your living room.

Two-Leg Console Tables

A true console table has two front legs and rests against the wall. At the back, the table is attached to the wall for support, either with screws or a mounting plate. These tables are very shallow; they may be only a few inches deep.

Sofa or Console Tables

These terms are used interchangeably for a table that is 30-36 inches tall. The tables range in length from 36 to 72 inches, and in depth from 10 to 20 inches.

Historical

A sofa table may draw design inspiration from an earlier era, whether it's an ornate Regency piece, Queen Anne style, or midcentury modern. There are many antique and vintage tables available for sale, or you may want to purchase a reproduction piece.

Storage

Many sofa tables include storage features. This may come in the form of drawers under the table surface or shelves suspended between the legs. Some sofa tables also contain cubbies, cabinets, or even wine-bottle racks, depending on the design.

Unusual Materials

Most sofa tables are made from stained or painted wood. But you'll also find tables constructed of metal, glass, and natural stone. There are mirrored tables and tables topped with leather, and many tables combine several materials, such as a wood top with metal legs.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Here are a couple of other factors to keep in mind when purchasing a sofa table or console table.

Two-Leg Console Tables

Because these tables have to be secured to the wall, you'll want to pick its location carefully. Make sure it's out of the flow of traffic. If the table is going to be used as part of an arrangement with art and a lamp, purchase and place those items before permanently securing the table. After that, it's difficult to move the table to another location.

Sofa or Console Tables

If you're pairing this table with a sofa, match the table to the size of the sofa. The table height should come within 6 inches of the top of the back of the sofa. The length of the table should cover at least two-thirds of the sofa length. If you are planning to place a lamp on the table, pick a table that is deep enough to accommodate a lamp base.
