The sofa table decor in this living room is pulled together perfectly. We love how it is styled with neutral decor to go perfectly with the pops of greenery in this living room. This sofa table in natural wood tone is perfect for displaying accents, books, or your favorite vases.

The luck of the storage shelf under the sofa table makes this the perfect space to place little ottomans and poufs that can be pulled out and used when you need to kick up your feet.

This light wood sofa table is perfect for smaller spaces where you are in need of some storage and decor space behind the sofa, but you don’t need the space to look cluttered. The light wood color will offer that light and breezy feel in your living room.

Use bigger baskets under the sofa table for added storage space for your blankets and pillows, and add a pop of color with a dark-colored vase filled with seasonal flowers.

If your sofa table is a bit wider you can utilize stools to double its use as a bar. Put decor on the sides that will blend seamlessly with the rest of the decor in your living room. Using a sofa table with stools in this way is perfect for added seating space when you have guests in your home.

This is another example of using your sofa table for added seating space. If your sofa table is low enough you can opt-out for poufs instead of stools. Decorated with two big statement table lamps will leave enough impression and won’t go unnoticed.

We love Stephanies’ advice for decorating a sofa table -“When looking for items to place on a console/sofa table it’s best to keep it simple, uncluttered, and showcase a few key decor pieces.”

Her go-to decor elements are a vase with seasonal flowers or greenery, decorative object and books, and baskets filled with throw pillows. And we couldn’t agree with her more, this black sofa table looks perfectly styled.

This rustic sofa table with wheels located between the sofa and the dining table has a mix of kitchen and living room decor on it to serve both rooms equally. On top of it has beautiful decor pieces that complement the white living room decor. And on the shelves that are not visible from the living room, we can see decor appropriate for kitchens and dining rooms, like bowls, dinnerware, and cake stands.

The combined functionality of this console table is what makes it unique, and the addition of cast iron adds to the rustic charm of this decor element.
