If you have the space, a stylish console table or sideboard looks nice pushed up against the back of a sofa and provides storage or a place to set lamps, books, and other pretty things.
A low bench can work too. Keep a folded blanket on top and some stacks of books and magazines to break it up.
Two stools set side by side have the same effect.
Pulling up a desk or writing table is a nice look too and very functional. A great way to fit a small office area into your space.
If you're like me, you're always looking for more nooks and surfaces to decorate. What better place than the back of your sofa! Pull up a table or bench or simply drape a blanket over the back. You'll be happy you did.
