Sofa Arm Tray

You can finally relax after a long day at work. You sit down, start watching a movie, but… the coffee table is too far to reach your glass of wine without having to move, and you’ve just realized that you’re now sitting onto the remote that you had chucked onto the couch.

Or perhaps your living room is so small that a coffee table wouldn’t even fit in the first place?

When you get yourself a sofa arm tray, you no longer have to worry about any of this.

These practical pieces are ideal to take comfort to the next level by letting you keep your essential items always next to you when you’re sitting down.

Plus, you can now find them in all kinds of designs, from the most minimalist models to those with extra compartments!

Traditional sofa arm tray

Traditional sofa arm tray

Don’t think that a sofa arm tray will automatically look tacky or out of place! While primarily functional, these items can still be used to complement your decor style or palette. For example, you could look for a traditional wooden design or a cheaper plastic option made to look like it.

As well as immediately looking cozy and more similar to traditional furniture pieces, a sofa arm clip table with raised edges will prevent you from dropping food or drinks on the floor (or yourself).

Foldable armrest tray with an eye for sustainability

Foldable armrest tray with an eye for sustainability

Foldable models are some of the best sofa arm trays: they’re guaranteed to fit on any couch, regardless of how wide and in what shape its armrests are!

They’re also easy to store whenever you’re not using them and can easily be employed as a flat surface too if needed (for example, to place a bowl of chips in between you and your partner).

If you prefer sustainable pieces, why not choose a versatile bamboo design?

Minimalist wooden armrest tray for your essentials

Minimalist wooden armrest tray for your essentials

Minimalist at heart but could do with keeping a couple of items next to you when relaxing on the sofa? Then find an armrest tray that focuses on what matters the most to you.

For example, a streamlined design is handy if you don’t need additional pockets nor wish to ruin your minimalist decor with clutter. Something as simple as this phone holder will allow you to keep it upright and next to you without it getting in the way.

Cohesive armchair tray table with coasters

If it’s non-negotiable that your new sofa arm tray matches the rest of your decor and existing furniture pieces, why not reinforce this plan by choosing a set with coasters?

That way, your tray will look like a conscious decorative choice rather than a purely functional addition, and you’ll get to use coasters in the same style on your side or coffee table.

As long as your armrests consist of a squared design, you could consider choosing a more rustic tray made of wood.

Showcasing unique veins and immediately conveying a cozy touch, a wooden armrest tray is also a versatile option that will work with most decor styles, from Scandinavian to farmhouse.

If foldable options aren’t big or safe enough for you as you’re worried you’ll end up spilling all the drinks you’re planning on fitting on it, we recommend a model with raised edges that looks more like a breakfast tray.

These small tables are usually available in more decorative styles too, which makes them the perfect addition to shabby chic, French country, or traditional rooms.

Don’t forget that your new sofa arm clip table can actually be the perfect chance to showcase your passions and hobbies or to make a unique statement.

Whether shaped like an American football or including the picture of an animal (or something else entirely!), get creative scouting for the design that’s guaranteed to be a conversation starter in your home.

Couch arm cup holder for bookworms

Couch arm cup holder for bookworms

Nothing beats the relaxing comfort of sitting down with your favorite book and a steaming mug of tea during the coldest months (or an iced drink when it’s too hot to read in the backyard).

With plenty of room for books and a spill-free cupholder, we’re pretty sure that some couch arm cup holders were designed with bookworms in mind.

Movie and glass of wine? Some couch cup holder armrests include one or two drink holders that are perfect to enjoy an evening treat without worrying about spillages.

If you could also do with keeping your phone and remote at hand, look for a model that includes a pocket or compartment. 

Couch arm table with multiple pockets

Couch arm table with multiple pockets

Let’s face it: a phone holder or one compartment aren’t enough for you. When you sit down, you don’t want to get up at any cost until you decide to.

Then keep everything you could possibly need right next to you while also avoiding a cluttered mess. In fact, some couch arm tables include multiple compartments and larger pockets for magazines, books, remotes, phones, and much more.

A great compromise if you haven’t got enough room for a coffee table, too!

Our advice Buying Guide

If you are tired of fishing in the depths of the couch for the remote, love to snack – but hate the crumbs in the couch cushions, love to have a cup of hot tea with your book when you have time to put your feet up but hate balancing the hot cup with your paperback, then you are going to love a sofa arm tray. They come in all shapes and sizes, including a few that resemble small laptop desks, and can function as such. These small “tables” can make your relaxation time so much better, just by keeping all your stuff close at hand where it’s less likely to spill and more likely to be easily found.

How to make a DIY Sofa Arm Table?

  • TOOLS: A drill with long drill bit, brush, clear sealer and/or stain if desired.
  • MATERIALS: Scrap one inch by whatever wood scrap. One piece needs to be at least six inches wide, and you will need six additional pieces at least two inches wide and the same length as the one inch by six-inch piece.
  • DIRECTIONS: Drill holes edge to edge through the boards, matching locations. Thread the cotton clothesline through the holes as if you were stringing beads. Tie knots in the line to keep the boards positioned correctly or hot glue them in place. You will want three narrow boards on each side of the six-inch board. Place the six-inch board over the arm of your couch and you will have a nice surface for a cup or a crossword puzzle.

What are some desirable features of sofa arm trays?

  • Extra Width

This commercially made sofa arm tray combines a wide surface perfect for your book and a cup of tea. On the outside of the couch arm, the balanced edge includes a magazine or book rack – which could double as a TV remote holder.

  • Grip

A sofa arm tray may include an ergonomic grip sturdy enough to help someone sit down or stand up – very handy for someone with arthritis or with a sports injury.

  • Cup holder

A cup holder in one corner of to the tray prevents accidental spills.

  • Storage pockets

Sometimes it isn’t the table you need so much as just a place to keep everything. A sofa arm tray may include a sturdy tray with one or two hanging pocket organizers that are just the place for eyeglasses, remotes, and a magazine or crossword puzzle book along with pencils or pens.

Sofa arm trays are a handy way to make your couch or armchair even more comfortable. Keep the things you like to have at hand all in one small utility area, ready to use. No more searching for pens, pencils, eyeglasses or the book that you have nearly finished and had to put down just as you were getting to the good part.
