One kind of furniture that is often appreciated in this manner is accent tables. Accent tables provide a bit of extra storage as well as an attractive filler for what used to be a very empty space in your home.
Color. Another important aspect of an accent table is color. Lighter woods can look amazing when mixed with darker woods in other pieces of furniture, and a white wood table can really make black wood furniture stand out. Remember that an accent table is all about drawing the eye and making a dramatic effect, so avoid tables that blend into your other furniture.
The use of an decorative accent table can come in many ways. Often end tables are placed next to a sofa, loveseat, sectional, or chair keeping in mind that the top of the table should never be higher than the arm height. For the best results, try to plan on the arm height being at its crown 1 inch taller than the table. Console accent tables make great conversation pieces behind a sofa or placed on a plain wall with two small lamps on top. Doing this kind of placement will help show off any decorative accessories or pictures that you might have on top of it.
Accent tables as end tables are really popular these days, largely because you can mix and match them, but also because they allow you to show off a bit of your personality, choosing pieces that not only fit the space well, but reflect your style and personal tastes.
Square accent tables are also invaluable little tables in any room. Standing alone by a wall or next to a chair or bed, these furnishings often stand on four legs, which may also include one or two shelves underneath the table top. They may be used purely for decorative purposes, holding a vase of flowers or a piece of artwork.
Practical and Beautiful! An accent table allows you to express your creative touches around the room effortlessly, brightening up any drab area. It can blend in perfectly with any kind of space - be it a niche corner, wall, a spacious entryway or even a bathroom - lending completeness to any living space. You can go ahead and flaunt your favorite curios, place some endearing photographs or just a place to keep your drink; whatever the purpose, a table can match it beautifully.
