To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
Selecting an end table is simply a matter of choice, and there are plenty of end tables and accent tables to choose from. The unique thing about choosing an end table, as opposed to other pieces of furniture, is the fact that it not only has to match the furniture you already have, but it also has to fit in the space you have. Unlike coffee tables, end tables must be squeezed in at the end of a couch or in between chairs. They provide an additional space for glasses, lamps, books, and anything else you might want to set there. An end table can be a magazine rack or just a small table for a lamp. It can be an accent feature in the room, or it can just be an elegant addition. It all depends on what you are looking for.
Outdoor patios can be livened by the use of end tables. Great for entertaining, patios or decks generally provide guest seating, and end tables offer handy space for placing cold drinks or snack items.
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.
Even though it's easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult.
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.
