Console & sofa tables serve as accent tables. They can be part of a matched suite, but often they are not. A console makes a place to put your television, game machines, playables, and viewables. It can even contain bound books, boxed games, magazines and other small items that just happen to need a home. Sofa tables can include end tables or coffee tables, or even small desks. End tables are the perfect place for lamps and can sometimes (shhh!) even conceal a cat box. Coffee tables are mini-workspace where games can be placed, a snack, puzzles, “coffee table books” and more.
