Have you ever really considered what kind of abuse you cause to some of the pieces of furniture in your home? A lot of people think about things like the sofa or perhaps even a kitchen table when it comes to the most used pieces of furniture in their home that get a lot of use and abuse. However there are some less appreciated pieces that are doing just as hard of a job and rarely get the appreciation they deserve for their hard work.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
With all of the table choices, especially the online consumer, make your next choice teak.
We're talking about side tables. Side tables are put in a number of places in your home and are used for any and every job from holding books to lamps to drinks and anything else you decide to put on the surface. From day to day their job changes and what you expect of them changes, yet you don't give them any extra love than you do the other pieces of furniture in your home.
The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
When choosing the right side table, here are some other great uses:
