Tables also come in a variety of shapes, including the preferred triangular accent tables for any empty corners; square stand alone accent tables with storage spaces underneath, mainly used for decorative purposes; rectangular accent tables which can also be designed to hold reading material; or the ubiquitous round which is usually placed next to chairs or sofa ends and can be ornately designed.
When shopping for new living room accent tables, don't forget to consider these tables for other areas of the room. For example you can buy a second table that matches one of the ones that bookend your sofa and use it across the room. Because they have the same pattern and features, they will tie nicely together. Add a plant to it, use it to display family photos or let your iPad serve up an ever rotating slideshow from your recent family vacation. An accent table is perfect for this use. Since accent tables can vary in height, be sure you order one that will work for you. For example, a tall plant may work better on a slightly shorter accent table while you'll want photos to be up a bit higher.
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.
That said, you can add a very different looking table to a foyer or entryway to create a welcoming environment. This can be used to hold a nice lamp, a candy dish or even a guestbook to give your home the ambience of a comfortable inn.
That's one of the reasons why these tables for any décor are such a great addition to your home. Not only will you find tables for any décor readily available online as well as in traditional brick and mortar stores, but you'll also be able to show your personality with them.
Accent tables look very different than traditional end tables. They can be highly decorative, making them terrific for anchoring the upholstered furnishings in the room. What's more, accent tables come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so you can select a table that is perfect for the space you have available.
