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.
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.
One thing's for sure. You don't want to overlook accent tables as an option for decorating your home. Their versatility, beauty and variety almost guarantee you'll find the perfect table for that space that always seemed just a little too empty.
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.
If you are looking for accent tables with a little character and personality, you may want to look in the antique market. These accent tables have been around for a while, often passed down from generation to generation. You can spend a lot of time looking at the markings and age patterns and try to think about what these accent tables may have been doing in the past.
Picking out the right accent table may be a lot easier than you think. There are so many different styles and designs to choose from today, it shouldn't be very difficult to find exactly what you need to fill that bare spot. Accent tables come in many different shapes and sizes. You can find small, tall, round or oval accent tables, cutout detail tables for the corner, pedestal tables for that elegant look, tables in black, white, scalloped or carved, and wooden tables with or without drawers or shelves. You will also find tables that can be used as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, console tables, entry tables, hall tables and cabinets that will do double duty as an accent table.
