Clean lines and a lack of ornate elements is the winning combination if you’re choosing a sofa table for a minimalist living room.

While a couple of souvenirs or decorative items won’t hurt, we recommend avoiding additional open shelves: that way, you won’t run the risk of creating a cluttered feel in the long run.

There are several ways to match your mid-century modern furniture with your new narrow sofa table. For example, choose darker and warmer wood finishes instead of more contemporary lighter options.

As for designs, try and emphasize their horizontal length with shorter but longer lines. Outward-pointing legs are especially popular for console-style sofa tables.

An aged style on a wooden sofa table works wonders with several interior styles, and especially the following three: coastal (perhaps consider including some beach colors like in this model with light blue and ochre shades), shabby chic (focus on white elements and harmonious lines), and French country (a distressed painted finish is also a popular alternative).
