Height - The first thing you need to make sure of is that you have a table that is of the right height for your purposes. This is going to depend in part on the sofa you have. When you are reaching over the arm of the sofa you don't want to be uncomfortable picking things up or setting them down. So the height of the table needs to be measured from the sofa arm height.
Most people recall their first set of end tables the ones they got when they moved into their first apartment or home which may have been a hand me down ferreted from a thrift shop or second hand store or in the case of many bachelors used materials found at a local hardware store. Moving up the next set may have been purchased from a discount house being a blend of chipped and particled board covered with faux wood grain. It was a start but looking back you probably don't even want to remember these first attempts to furnish your home.
Sofa and end tables make a statement as to your choice of décor just as they did when they were first designed in Europe in the 1600s. Since there were no BMWs or Mercedes in the driveway to reflect one's wealth the fashionable home was the ultimate indication of good taste and standing in the community. Back then sofa and end tables would occupy the coveted area accompanying two other popular pieces of the time the chesterfield or settee. (These days we would call them a couch or loveseat.) Acting as companion pieces they were known for extensive carving and intimate details. Fortunately the craftsmanship that existed in the 1600s is still available today and period pieces are very popular in modern homes. As styles and design creativity evolved the variety of sofa and end tables has expanded into new and tasteful models that you can display in your "manor."
