Here's 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 it's the wrong color.
Finally, you can think out of the box, these days. One of the newest trends is redefining what an end table even is. For example, you can find a table that serves dual duty. There are models out on the market that are actually kennels for your pets. You can remove the front grate so that it doubles as a pet condo. For added comfort you can always add a small dog pillow inside. The table has plenty of slats around it so your dog can get air, even when it's being used as a kennel.
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 don't overwhelm the room or look Lilliputian next to your mammoth sectional.
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. There's not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you can't find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Today's 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.
So how to you narrow down your choices?
Purchase Closeout and Clearance Pieces. Another great way to save money on these tables is to look for tables that are no longer going to be manufactured. Retailers always put these tables on sale to get rid of them quickly, and they especially want to be rid of the tables if they need to make room for new models. Of course you may want the latest style of table, but just remember that tables do not actually change a whole lot from year to year. When a manufacturer stops making a particular model, it does not necessarily mean that the replacement model will be much different than the original. This is especially true of tables that have a very classic look to them. Odds are the manufacturer is simply changing the table lineup a bit.
