Once you have settled on a Victorian theme for your dining room, you have a lot of things to take into consideration. While many other furniture styles allow you just to shop a few main pieces of furniture that suit the look and be done with it, Victorian furniture is all about details and the fine points. So, it’s time to start pre-shopping.


Chances are you have already decided on some of the main pieces of furniture in your living room or at least have a good idea of what you desire. So we are going to skip over the sofa, chairs and coffee table and move into something that you may not have thought of – sofa tables. Sofa tables are literally tables that can be set behind a sofa and have a few various aspirations depending on where you are putting them.


Against the Wall

If you are putting sofa tables against a wall, as in between the sofa and the wall, opportunities are they just have a few purposes – to hold things and to possibly be a place to put a lamp that can light over your shoulder. When it comes to picking this kind of sofa tables for your living room you really have only a few things to think about – what the top and sides look like. Since the two longest sides of the table are going to be covered by the wall and the sofa, you don’t have to care what those areas look like. The only thing you have to worry about in this respect is that if it is an ornate piece that it will not push out too much where you cannot put it up against the wall and sofa as you would like.
