Beyond style and size, you really want to think about features. While you wouldn't ordinarily think about a piece of furniture as having desirable features, coffee and end table sets can have an endless array.
Which room will host the end table?
Not everyone has a budget to purchase large antique pieces. Tens of thousands of dollars for a large antique desk or armoire may not be a part of your budget, as that's a lot of money to be out for one piece of furniture.
Color. After you know exactly how much space you have to work with, then it is time to consider color. An end table that matches your furniture is always best. These days end tables can be either solid wood or ready to assemble, which is made of a much lighter wood that must be put together. Tables can be metal and glass, or they can be completely wood. The black wrought iron look is always a classic, and when paired with glass, it comes across quite elegant in any space. Also color can come across in the type of wood you choose. Shoppers who are looking for a reddish tint will want to look for a lighter cherry or mahogany wood, while those who want a very light colored wood black should opt for oak.
Nightstands - Today, many nightstands are just a slight jump from end tables anyway. Sometimes, you may even wonder if the furniture store didn't just create a new label to call what really was a set of end tables a pair of nightstands or visa versa. If they fit the bill, don't worry if they say they are supposed to be in the bedroom.
Round tables are really in this year as a style, but while round coffee tables and round dining tables have taken center stage, it can be harder to find round end tables.
