You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together, while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room, such as when your child is sick, you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
You think end tables are called end tables because they are the last piece of furniture that you put in a room, but they don't have to be. If you find a great end table somewhere that could be your starting point, your inspiration for the décor of your room.
Still, there are a lot of different sizes for end tables so you want to make sure that when choosing the perfect end table you get one that is correctly portioned. For instance, if you are placing the table at the end of a sofa, you want the table to be nearly as deep as the sofa or three quarters of its depth. The same is true if you place an end table next to a chair or between a set of chairs. In this case it can be a bit smaller in stature, but the actual size can be influenced by its style. A blocky table can be smaller than a more delicate, leggy table, for instance.
Once you know you want to have a few antique end tables in your home, you need to proceed carefully. Unfortunately, because of the popularity of antiques, thanks to the same TV show that made you like them, there are many people who are trying to pass off fake pieces as real antique end tables.
That's not to say that these tables aren't still trendy. It's just that traditional brick and mortar retailers have only so much room for furniture and these other round tables have captured all the press this year.
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.
