Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement. The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture but not so far as to place your cup out of each.
First why do you need coffee tables and end tables - or either one of these? Many use them simply for show and rarely for coffee. Others use them only when they have guests while yet others actually use them in the course of a normal day for their primary intended use.
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or `coffee table` books. Whatever your purpose is your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
While homes seem to be larger than ever many homeowners are in the process of downsizing these days either because of economic circumstances or simply a desire to live a simpler life. Just because you live in a smaller dwelling doesn`t mean that you have to give up the comforts of home you`ve become so used to. Rather you may simply need to change some of the furnishings keeping your favorites and then balancing them with smaller support pieces.
