I'm Lisa Ferguson with Lisa Ferguson Interior Design and Decor Mentor. We're talking today about proper side table placement when placed next to a sofa. Often times I find people will go too close to a sofa as much as a inch away or as far away as six inches. Optimally two to four inches away from the sofa is where you want to go. And also give some serious thought to the height of the table as well. You really want it to be no lower that six inches below the arm height and you defiantly don't want to be higher than the arm height. Stick with these rules and you will have an winning vignette. Thank you for watching. I'm Lisa Ferguson with Interior Design and Decor Mentor. For more insight in to interior design, or to find a designer in your region, visit
