We showed you eight sofa sidekicks yesterday, and now we're back with seven more ideas for this small but powerful piece of real estate in your living room.
A magazine rack
Do your magazine stacks get a little out of control in your home? Help tame print clutter by fitting in a magazine rack on the side of your sofa for easy reading. Via Decor8.
Here's a novel idea: Why do you need anything on the side of your sofa? Why not cultivate a less-clutter, more wide-open feel by just leaving this spot empty?
A hidden pet box
Do you hate the look of your dog's kennel crates? Does the sight of a litter box leave you a little unhinged? Get crafty and create a sofa side table that pulls double duty and hides your pet's needs.
A table that takes up no floor space at all
Instead of the regular-sized kind of table that sits beside your sofa, create a small table that drapes over your sofa arm! It's great for super small spaces and looks stylish, too. Via francois & moi.
Several side tables
Want to make a bigger impact than just one side table can do? Then add several. Nesting tables or even arranging a few closely together can be an interesting layered look and make the space seem exciting. If you're scared of it feeling too heavy, opt for see-through materials.
Something painted a bold color
Want to just take the existing side table you have in your living room space and push it over the top? Paint it a bright, bold, exciting color. Via Design*Sponge.
An airy, sculptural piece
If you're fighting with the side of the sofa, trying to find something that will function the way you need it to look but not take up so much visual space, go for an airy table with wire-y legs that matches (or comes close) to your sofa's color. Via Trendenser.
