A sofa table is a long and narrow table used to display decor, add intrigue, or incorporate storage. Similar to a console table, they generally stand around 30 inches—higher than a coffee table, yet shorter than a chest of drawers. However, sofa tables certainly aren’t a new concept, as they date back to the late 1700s. While traditionally they were long dropleaf tables used in front of sofas, today you will often find them without a dropleaf and placed against the back of a couch. From rustic farmhouse sofa tables to elegant chrome tables, they come in a variety of shapes, materials, and styles to suit any home—and our list explores a little bit of everything.
