Silver end tables – Long rectangular tables that can be nearly 7 meters in length and as little as 1 foot in depth have been decorating clips for decades. They were originally designed to conceal or cover the back of a sofa as it became traditional not to end the back of a padded sofa. These days, however, they add a further dimension to a room and provide storage and shelving options. Decorating sofa tables can show your creativity. They are suitable for screens of your objects d’art, small photographs or graphics. Place your sofa so it’s floating in the room and not against a wall, or at least the width of your sofa table from the wall.
Position the silver end tables behind the couch, either up against the wall or flush against the back of the couch. Embellish with small, short ornaments that you can group or gather to make an interesting group of color or design. It’s a good strategy if the couch is crowded and makes people sit back and relax, in which case you may not want very high, high ornaments placed on the coffee table. People can sit back and knock them over. For this type of sofa, see shells mixed with small vases or glass jewelry good as do miniature staffelier with miniature framed artwork.
Decorate more formal silver end tables with objects of different heights. Use different sizes of lights and candlesticks to bring focus and add height to space. Display plates and works of art, again on staffelier. You can also vary the sizes and designs of vases or glassware. Use the sofa table as a coffee table assistant. Hold a set of coaster on it and when the space is cramped, guests can place their drinks on the back sofa couch. Likewise, putting magazines and books on the couch table allows room for larger items you want to display on the coffee table. Add an antique lantern to one side of coffee table to enhance the primitive decor. Put a bouquet of flowers in an antique milk jar or bottle of water and use this bouquet as a centerpiece in your primitive coffee table.
