What is the difference between a sofa table and coffee table?

Generally speaking, a "sofa table" is a tall, narrow table used behind a sofa to hold lamps or decorative objects. A "coffee table" is any table used in front of the sofa, ostensibly as a place to set your coffee cup. That being said, any number of variations can be used: "cocktail tables" are really just coffee tables used for cocktails, and "end tables" are just small sofa tables, moved to the ends of the sofa. There are no rules for these things, but do remember to keep your lamps and decorations in proportion to the tables that hold them - by no means should any table be overloaded or unbalanced. Also remember to keep 18-20" between the sofa and any table(s) in front of it, to avoid banging your legs. Keep all electrical cords tangle-free and out of traffic. And don't be afraid to think outside the norm for tables: chests, dressers, trunks, baskets, cradles, even file cabinets can all be made useful around and in front of seating. Or maybe you don't need a table at all...
