Occasional tables are tables that do not have a primary function, as opposed to dining tables or work tables. Relatively small and used mostly for decorative or display purposes, occasional tables include end tables, side tables, sofa tables, and coffee tables. While they might not seem necessary, these tables do serve the “occasional” function, as they provide a surface on which to set drinks, books, remote controls, and so on.
An end table or side table is generally placed at one or both ends of a sofa or next to a chair. End tables are frequently used to support table lamps.
A sofa table is a longer, taller table that is designed for placement behind a sofa rather than at the sides. While heights vary, many sofa tables are high enough that someone sitting on the sofa can reach back and access items on top of the table. If the sofa is arranged so as not to sit against a wall, the sofa table can also be used from the other side; many styles feature double drawers. The sofa table is no longer used just to back a sofa. They are frequently seen tucked against a wall in foyers and hallways, as their narrower construction keeps them from being an obstacle.
