End Table. Thursday , December 21st , 2017 - 07:03:14 AM
Designers talk a lot about scale. Now, it is true that small end tables will upset the visual balance a bit, winnowing under weight of a larger love seat or sofa. There are things you can do to fix this. One is to use slightly taller lamps that still have a small base. For instance, you may want to forego a ceramic or pot style lamp and use one with a candlestick post. This will make the table look bigger than it really is and the added height of the lamps will help add visual weight as well. You can also choose to increase the scale by going with small end tables that are more solid. Instead of selecting an open design, you may want to go with a cabinet design to give the appearance that they are substantial pieces. If you go with an open design with just a top and legs, it can make your small end tables appear even smaller than they really are.
Space. One of the first things every shopper should do before looking for an end table is measure the amount of space available. This is especially true in cases where you have a couch up against a wall in a space that fits rather tightly. There is no point in seriously considering any end table if it does not fit in the space you have, so be sure to measure carefully before you go shopping. Color. After you know exactly how much space you have to work with, then it is time to consider color. An end table that matches your furniture is always best. These days end tables can be either solid wood or ready to assemble, which is made of a much lighter wood that must be put together. Tables can be metal and glass, or they can be completely wood. The black wrought iron look is always a classic, and when paired with glass, it comes across quite elegant in any space. Also color can come across in the type of wood you choose. Shoppers who are looking for a reddish tint will want to look for a lighter cherry or mahogany wood, while those who want a very light colored wood black should opt for oak.
You may have never thought of using nesting tables as end tables, but they offer you a lot of advantages over traditional end tables. First, lets explain what nesting end tables are. Think of them as a table that fits under a table that fits under a table. Thats what nesting end tables are. They are perhaps the most flexible piece of furniture you could own, since one moment they can serve as a lovely end table, but when guests are over or the holidays roll around, you have additional table space for appetizers, drinks and the usual overflow of desserts. Nesting tables are a rather new concept in furnishings. The idea originated between 1930 and 1935. The original designs consisted of three to four small tables that could be stacked one upon the other. As time went on, designers also figured out that they could also be stored one under another, creating a piece of furniture that offered maximum space in a very small package.
