Heres a little tip in that regard. If you have wood accents on your upholstered pieces, you want to pick the same type of wood, stain or color for your coffee and end table sets. This will ensure that they look like a family of pieces, rather than having something stick out like a sore thumb because its the wrong color. As far as the coffee and end table sets themselves, you need to pay particular attention to the size of the pieces. These sets come in all sizes and shapes and you want to make sure that the ones you fall in love with dont overwhelm the room or look Lilliputian next to your mammoth sectional. Beyond style and size, you really want to think about features. While you wouldnt ordinarily think about a piece of furniture as having desirable features, coffee and end table sets can have an endless array.
For example, you can get coffee and end table sets that are long on storage as well as style. Many coffee tables come with storage space inside, accessible either by doors or through a lift top table that cantilevers up and out from the coffee table itself. The same is true of end tables. Some have shelves, others have a single drawer while still others have several drawers, allowing you to keep things out of sight and out of mind when not in use. These are perfect for families or people who have pets. When company comes over, just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets. Keep in mind that you dont have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular, theres no rule saying you cant pick a round or oval model, or even improvise and go with a totally non-traditional piece that will fill the bill nicely, such as a trunk or chest.
If glass and metal are more your thing, then you are probably looking for a more contemporary style. Glass with black metal is a little more classic while still remaining contemporary, while glass and silver or gold metal offers a unique flair that adds color and style to any room. Some metal and glass tables even come in sets of three nesting tables. Nesting tables are a contemporary solution to the space problem so many people have. They can be pulled out to provide plenty of table space when it is needed, or they can be nested, one over the other, so that there is less table space and more room to walk around as needed. Another element of style in an end table is plain or fancy. Some of the plainest tables fit more easily into tight corners, although you shouldnt give up hope on a fancy or ornate table if all you have is a tiny space. The wide variety of tables available means you are sure to find anything you are looking for.
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. Theres not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you cant find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Todays designs allow you to mix and match concepts, putting what was once an end table next to the bed or for use in a guest room as a display stand. This is a terrific idea, by the way. Whenever you get new round end tables for the living room, you can re purpose the old ones in other rooms, adding a new table to your master, a kids room or even a bathroom. Not only a great use of your old furniture, but very Eco-friendly too.
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.
