One of the great things about these tables is the variety you can find. Not only are round end tables available in a variety of styles, but also materials, including wood, metal, marble, glass and resins. Once you add in the different colors, grains, stains and finishes, you can get a table in just about any look you want.
However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
Also keep in mind the color scheme of your existing furniture, as well as the materials they are crafted from, such as wood, steel or glass, and pick and end table of similar material. In addition, before you purchase your end table, take into consideration both functionality and design to find a solution that's perfect for you.
When thinking about shape, you also want to consider the style. For beginners, you're always safe going with a table that has straight legs and lines if the furniture around it also has straight lines. The same is true with a curved, leggy piece. It will tend to look better with more ornate furnishings.
Some have been known to use these tables as accent pieces, and place them away from the proximity of sofas and chairs. Quite frankly, there is little point in doing this because these tables have been designed for a specific purpose. If you want accent tables, there are many of them available to choose from online that look more of an accent piece than regular coffee and end tables.
A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low, and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
