Accent Tables. Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such, they come in many different shapes and finishes, including drum tables, drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables, particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat. Chairside Tables: End tables can be used as chairside tables, of course. The only difference is the chairside table often has a smaller footprint and is sized to place next to a recliner or chair. Smaller end tables can do the same thing, offering you flexibility in your room designs.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days. When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you dont want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you dont want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room. That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
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.
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers. Outdoor patios can be livened by the use of end tables. Great for entertaining, patios or decks generally provide guest seating, and end tables offer handy space for placing cold drinks or snack items. Living rooms are traditionally rooms where end tables are found. Ensconcing an overstuffed sofa on each end, end tables provide lighting possibilities as well as display surface. Handy drawers can keep the area clear of clutter by containing remotes, reading glasses, television viewing guides and more. Coordinating the tables with a coffee table brings a finished look to your décor.
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.
