Selecting an end table is simply a matter of choice, and there are plenty of end tables and accent tables to choose from. The unique thing about choosing an end table, as opposed to other pieces of furniture, is the fact that it not only has to match the furniture you already have, but it also has to fit in the space you have. Unlike coffee tables, end tables must be squeezed in at the end of a couch or in between chairs. They provide an additional space for glasses, lamps, books, and anything else you might want to set there. An end table can be a magazine rack or just a small table for a lamp. It can be an accent feature in the room, or it can just be an elegant addition. It all depends on what you are looking for.
There are many various styles of tables available on the market and finding the tables that fit your home is simply a matter of knowing what type of ambiance you want your room to possess. Luckily, the various styles of end tables available make it easy to find that will provide you with the exact look youre aiming for. Each of the various styles of end tables offer their own touch to the rooms they reside in. Because of this, you want to make sure the ones you buy will work well with the furniture you already have. For instance, if you have a very modern sofa with a new age look, you dont want end tables featuring a Queen Anne design. Instead, you would want to shop from the contemporary end tables on the market. The other various styles of end tables probably wouldnt suit your needs.
While styles and tastes have changed over the years, nesting tables have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. As manufacturers have developed new takes on this classic, new nesting end tables are finding their way back on the market in large numbers. In fact, there are literally hundreds of designs to choose from when it comes to nesting tables, from the classic look of the 1930s to rustic designs, exotic models, eclectic designs and, of course, traditional, contemporary and even modern versions. Theres literally a style to match every home, and thats not even counting the finishes or materials, whether its wood, metal, marble, glass or a mix. As you probably know, end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room, great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom, but not much else. With nested end tables, you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table, you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
End tables are often an afterthought in a living room or great room. Often, so much time goes into making decisions about the upholstered pieces, the coffee table, the lamps and the paint, that it becomes an, "oh, and we also need some end tables" type of decision. Sad, since these tables can really complete the look of the room and not only give you some much needed storage and stacking areas, but also add character. Thats because they come in so many varieties, styles and sizes. So how do you go about choosing the right table? The first considerations are scale and the space available. An end table shouldnt dominate the space its in. Rather, it should complement the other furnishings, especially those pieces nearest it. Additionally, if you already have a coffee table in place, you want the end tables to be in the same finish and style.
If youre looking for a stunning set of end tables, you really cant go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction, they can come in an endless array of finishes, design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements, which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone. When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First, the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them, say a strip of silver or brass along the front, you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if youre trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. Youll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making, going with a similar finish for your end tables.
