End Table. Thursday , December 21st , 2017 - 07:14:41 AM
Some of the newer designs really redefine the very concept of what a traditional end table is. Some models are double-tiered that look as if a smaller table was placed on a larger table. There are also models that have drop leafs so that they can fit in smaller areas or allow one side to be dropped so it can rest flush with a sofa, love seat or chair. If storage is important, consider going with a drum table instead. These are a little bulkier in appearance, but give you much needed storage, since the table has one large door-ed unit with shelves inside or one of more drawers. These can even really add character to the room as well as offer storage. Drum tables are particularly handy if you like to knit, read or have other hobbies where you like to keep your stuff handy. These can work well in a bedroom too, if you want a different look than the traditional pair of matched nightstands. If space is at a premium, you can go with a single drum table instead, allowing you to have a place to put your lamp and clock while still having lots of storage down below.
Round tables are really in this year as a style, but while round coffee tables and round dining tables have taken center stage, it can be harder to find round end tables. Thats not to say that these tables arent still trendy. Its just that traditional brick and mortar retailers have only so much room for furniture and these other round tables have captured all the press this year. Thankfully, there is still a great selection of round coffee tables online and online retailers in some cases, have them priced to move. In contrast to square end tables, round ones can give your room a much softer look, making it more friendly and inviting. This is due to the tricks our eyes like to play on us. For reasons beyond the scope of this article, our eye associates square, blocky items as being more formal, while round and oval are seen as more approachable and relaxed.
When thinking about shape, you also want to consider the style. For beginners, youre always safe going with a table that has straight legs and lines if the furniture around it also has straight lines. The same is true with a curved, leggy piece. It will tend to look better with more ornate furnishings. Finally, theres color to consider. When choosing the perfect table you want to consider the wood. If youre upholstered furniture has wood accents, you want the table woods to match. For example, stay with cherry or at least a dark wood if your sofa or chairs have cherry accents or match blond woods with blood woods. You dont have to use all the same shape of tables when choosing the perfect end table. But you do want to create a family feel. The style, color, finish and accents can tie them all together.
