Accent tables are really exactly what you think they are. In contrast to end tables and coffee tables which often match, this table can contrast with the décor, creating a space in the room that really stands out.
Accent tables that have tilt tops allow you to place the table against a wall when it's not needed. When you're entertaining, you can simply pull the table over to where it's needed most and secure the latch to lock the table top down. A tilt top is a great space saver.
Speaking of the outdoors, don't think for a moment that round accent tables are for indoor use only. While you don't want to use an indoor table outside, manufacturers have created outdoor versions of the accent table, so you can enjoy the same style of furnishings inside and out.
Some have even have more tricks up their sleeves, such as handsome oak magazine cabinets that have a built-in magazine rack (also perfect for holding a laptop by the way) and a small slide-out table that pulls out from the front so that you can have a cup of tea and still have room for a lamp the table's top.
When we think of something being ancient, we automatically think that's a bad thing. When we become 'ancient' we are older and having trouble doing things that at one time was not a challenge for us. But, it's a different story when we're talking about ancient furniture.
For example, an accent table can work wonderfully in an entryway, where you could use a place to keep your telephone books, your keys, gloves and other essentials that help you get on your way or find your way on a daily basis. They would look great with a small mirror above them, just so you can make sure you're all put together before you head out for the day.
