When you're shopping for these tables you may want to start with online retailers. This is particularly true if you haven't really considered adding accent tables to your home before. By shopping online, you can get an idea of the tremendous selection out there without having to bother with driving from one furniture retailer to another in the hope that they may have a couple models in stock.
When it comes to the ideal contemporary table you are looking for, you have to keep in mind that your table depends upon a number of options:
That's because they come in so many styles, themes and colors. You can get round accent tables that have just a touch of the Orient or ones that look as if they were picked up at an estate sale in England, rich in exotic and complex wood veneer designs.
When you search for the furniture accent tables that you wish to purchase, picture your living room and how you want it to look in the end. Different color arrangements are available and you will want to take a look at how these colors will go with your existing décor beforehand. In addition, you will want to look at your current style, as it would not make much sense to go in a completely different direction when you buy your table. By keeping with the continuity of your living room, you can ensure that you accent tables end up looking perfect in your room.
Or you can tie architectural details together, such as getting different accent tables that have the same finial work or legs. You can also go with the same finish on the tables matching one cherry accent table with another, even though they have different patterns or styles. That said, you need to be careful that you pick two that have the same tonal value and coloration. A bright red cherry table matched with a darker one can look out of place, unless you plan to set them at different ends of a furniture grouping to so visitors can't see the difference. It's far wiser, as long as you're getting new living room accent tables anyway, to make sure they match.
Some accent tables have been crafted with a particular purpose in mind. Telephone tables were very popular during the reign of tabletop rotary dial telephones, and were designed to hold the telephone on the surface with a drawer underneath to hold the telephone directory. Entry tables were designated to stand stately next to the home's main entry door, often under a mirror where one might check her appearance before retrieving her car keys from the drawer of the table and leaving the house. Regardless, all of them can play double duty in your home.
