O.K. Your room is all finished. Well, almost finished. Something still doesn't quite look right and even though you have all the major players in place - the sofa, love seat, a couple of occasional chairs and a coffee table - something still feels as if it is missing.
The first thing you'll need to do is assess the bare area of the room and decide how you would like your accent table to function. In addition to the finishing touch it will add to the room, does it also need to be functional? An example of this would be an entry table used in a foyer, to accommodate a phone. It would be a great idea to also have a drawer to accommodate a phone book.
You can find accent tables to fill any spot in your house and since they are so versatile, it is not very hard to find accent tables to fit your needs. Most are easy to match to your existing home décor. Accent tables are also inexpensive, so choosing one, or even a few of them, to dress up your home won't break the bank. Accent tables are available in many sizes and shapes and can be found to match any décor, made of wood, metal, glass or a combination of the three.
Shopping online allows you to quickly use built-in search engine features to narrow your search by size, shape, style, color, etc. This is a real timesaver. As you search, you may want to drag your favorites into a folder so you can print them out or view them on your computer later. Just be sure you remember where you saw each model at, or you may never be able to retrace your steps and find your favorite again so you can order it.
In contrast to end tables, accent tables don't come in pairs and are more ornate and embellished than your average end table. This allows you to add a little flair and flourish to your room by adding an accent table here or there that is in contrast to the other furnishings. An accent, if you will, to your other décor.
They fill in the small gaps in your room that are begging for a piece of furniture but which would be overwhelmed by a larger piece. These small accent tables fill the bill perfectly, allowing you to add another table that completes the room as no other piece of furniture can.
