Some of the newer designs really redefine the very concept of what a traditional end table is. Some models are double-tiered that look as if a smaller table was placed on a larger table. There are also models that have drop leafs so that they can fit in smaller areas or allow one side to be dropped so it can rest flush with a sofa, love seat or chair.
These are often not thought of as the super heroes of furniture, but they often can be, changing shapes to suit the need of any living space as well as offering the extra, much needed, storage space that lets you feel as if your living room is larger than it really is.
A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low, and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
A lack of space can be the enemy in home décor. If you have taken a walk around a furniture store you likely see mostly furnishings that fit well into a home that has a large floor plan, or even a moderate floor plan. But if you are living in a small condominium or apartment, there's no way those items are going to fit into your home.
Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
Just because pieces of furniture don't have a label that call them end tables doesn't mean they can't play the role of end tables. When you are decorating, you should not feel locked in to using one specific style of furniture to complete your room. This article will show you that end tables are in the eye of the beholder.
