Accent tables come in so many shapes, styles and finishes that it's really something of a catch-all term. In its most basic form, an accent table is a small table that can easily be placed next to a sofa or chair.
If you have an eye for design and want to create a space that is both fashionable and functional, you may want to select accent tables that serve multiple purposes. Favorites include revolving bookcase tables with multiple levels to display your collection of first edition Stephen King novels. Drum tables are also popular since they offer lots of storage inside. This is a particularly good choice for those of us who have too much stuff in their homes and want to keep some of the clutter out of sight.
After deciding on style, theme and other particulars, finding the perfect accent table for that empty space will be easy. You can shop online for it and you won't have to fight crowds, bad weather, traffic snarls and cranky kids or sales associates. With so many to choose from online, it will be easy to find just the "right one" to finish that room with the perfect decorating touch.
The same is true in scale. You can have a dominant table and a smaller table, or even two that are the same size. But they shouldn't be too large or too small to fit in the space you have in mind. For example, there's nothing wrong with getting new living room accent tables that are different shapes - say one rectangle and one oval - and using them in place of end tables. But you don't want them to be too large or too small for the location, either overshadowing your sofa, loveseat or chair or simply willowing away because they're too small.
Accent tables not merely give balance to the appearance of your living space but also that of your bedroom. They can be a place to put your collection of liquids along with other equipment and lights. As a way of getting more diversity and functionality, you have to think of how you'll utilize the table and at precisely what fashion you can go with your room's decoration.
Round end tables even make a great alternate to traditional end tables, adding a lot of visual impact to the room, since square or rectangular end tables are usually the rule. Accent tables that are round or oval make a delightful exception to this rule. You can even make a bolder statement by going with a pedestal table instead of a traditional table with four legs.
