Shapes of accent tables are varied to offer customers the greatest selection, with round, rectangular, square, and corner triangles dominating the market.
While rectangular or square accent tables will certainly fill the bill as an end table as well, you can also use them on the sides of your bed. One of the great things bout these tables is that they can each be different. Whether you use them in the living room or in the bedroom, you can actually use two different tables, such as one that's rectangular and one that's round, but in the same general style and finish. It's O.K. if they are very decorative, they are meant to be.
Accent tables for any décor will also work well in a guest room. For example, you can use a lovely accent table in lieu of a traditional nightstand, creating a different look that is still very functional. While you may forego drawers bedside, you can gain a nice table top with plenty of room for a lamp, book, reading glasses and other nighttime essentials. You can even add a crocheted or vintage lace doily on the top to add an extra homey touch. If you have enough room you can add another table on the other side of the bed, or perhaps place accent tables for any décor next to an overstuffed chair in the room so your guest has a place to get a little privacy. Add a floor lamp behind it and you have a quaint, comfortable getaway.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
That's one of the reasons why you'll find accent tables such a delightful addition to your home: their ability to serve so many roles.
For instance, some end tables just don't scale well in a room, especially when you have a large sectional that dominates the landscape. Smaller accent tables can fill the bill perfectly, as you can get one that is thinner but no less useful.
