Sofa Tables - They Should Suit Your Lifestyle

Jun 6, 2008
The many different styles and varieties of furniture now available makes furniture shopping and home decorating so much more fun. It's also much more challenging that it once was. Today when you choose furniture for your home, especially your living room, you want it to suit your lifestyle and the lifestyle of your family. The type of furniture you choose will tell a lot about you and your home. When your guests come to visit, you want them to feel welcome and comfortable. While your home should not be decorated merely for your guests, you still want an inviting home.

If you have plastic on your furniture, your guests probably won't feel real comfortable sitting on it. If your sofa set is white, they probably won't feel comfortable visiting with young children either. In addition, if your console tables are made of thin glass, they may be hesitant to rest anything on them. While you should always choose furniture that your and your family wants, these are some factors that should be considered when making your purchases.

As much fun as you have choosing furniture, the furniture manufacturers are having more fun with the many choices they now have for their designs. Modern furniture is very popular and is made with many different materials. Today almost anything goes as far as modern furniture. Home decorators are using sofas and sofa tables with a variety of materials including fabrics, wood, plastic, wrought iron and many more. Another very popular choice for sofas, console tables, dining room tables and beds is custom handmade furniture. More people today are choosing handmade furniture. This gives them the opportunity to not only have beautiful furniture but furniture made to suit them as well as their lifestyle.

Although picking out your furniture may seem difficult enough, placing it in your home may be even more difficult! Many people use the ancient Chinese method of Feng Shui. Feng Shui is based on energy or "chi". The Chinese believe our energy must be able to flow freely in order for us to live a harmonious life. They also believe the location of our homes and furnishings is very important to the energy and harmony in our lives. Even simple items like dining room tables, beds or console tables need to be placed in an area where the energy (chi) can flow positively and freely.

Console tables with smooth rounded surfaces provide for great chi. Glass surfaces and mirrors are said to reflect energy to different parts of the house. Glass covered sofa tables with rounded edges placed in the right location in your home will bring positive energy to all that surround it. Do not allow your sofa tables, dining room tables or chairs to block doorways as this is said to promote negative energy.

There is such a large variety of console and sofa tables today that you should have no problem with harmony in your home. Red is a color that Feng Shui feel is inappropriate because this color represents fire.

If you're uncertain about your furniture and the placement, there are magazines on home decorating as well as many websites that show entire living rooms complete with sofas, sofa tables, wall hangings, lighting and accessories.
