Most Frequently Asked Questions
While consoles and side tables have some similarities, they also have differences which define them from each other. A console table is wider, more shallow, and taller than most side tables. Because of this, console tables are typically placed against a wall. When console tables are placed against a sofa they are called (rather unsurprisingly) sofa tables. Sofa tables should not be taller than the sofa they are placed next to. Consoles/Sofa tables typically have a top surface which is supported by corbels or brackets. They are not designed to be stand-alone surfaces, and should be placed against a wall or sofa. A side table on the other hand is a table which is placed on the side of a sofa or piece of furniture a person would sit on such as a chair, or bed. The main purpose of a side table is to make sure that essential items are within easy reach. Side tables are convenient as they allow you to place the remote, your drink, book, or anything else as you sit.
