For sofa tables with a glass top and a lower shelf, in a tray, place pebbles of different colors or just white pebbles. On these pebbles, you may then place small plants such as the bamboo, or a bonsai. Without hindering the top of the table, these elements will add a unique decorative aspect to your living room and the seating area. You may also use colorful artificial plants for that much-needed but subtle dash of color.
Use a simple table cover made of lace or even silk, and use carved wooden block tea-light holders on each corner to hold the table covers in place. Light these up in the evenings to create a relaxing atmosphere. If you can, add a water feature to the center of the table such as a bowl with water and flower petals or floating candles to it. Brought together, these elements are enough to transform your seating area and the sofa tables into dazzling haven.
Finally, paint the table. Get yourself an old, vintage sofa tables from a garage sale or a flea market, sand it and paint on it whatever you like.
