End Table. Wednesday , December 20th , 2017 - 01:58:02 AM
Somewhere along the line, however, everything became more complex. Some blame the conversation pit era; that crafty sofa that didnt really have an end. Venerable end tables simply had nowhere to go. Coffee tables were suddenly on their own, placed in the center of the pit so visitors had a place to put their drinks while they, well, conversed. Today, end tables have made a comeback. No longer sold automatically in pairs with a coffee table, they have struck out on their own, joined by accent tables, occasional tables, drum tables, side tables... the list goes on and on and on.
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.
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure, since there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from. One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you dont have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design, just different sizes. If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish.
