The same is true in scale. You can have a dominant table and a smaller table, or even two that are the same size. But they shouldn't be too large or too small to fit in the space you have in mind. For example, there's nothing wrong with getting new living room accent tables that are different shapes - say one rectangle and one oval - and using them in place of end tables. But you don't want them to be too large or too small for the location, either overshadowing your sofa, loveseat or chair or simply willowing away because they're too small.
That's one of the great things about accent tables, their versatility. But don't think for a moment that they need to be reserved for the living room alone. You can add these tables to virtually any room in the home. Thanks to their small size and flexibility, you can add a table in any room that needs a real standout piece to accent the existing décor.
One of the great things about accent tables is there are so many choices out there. You can purchase models that are very ornate, lovingly crafted with intricate inlays and scrolled edging. Or you can go with accent tables that are very modern and minimalist, fitting perfectly in with a contemporary sofa or modern sectional. If you really have a passion, you can show these off with these tables, too. There are accent tables that are themed to any number of pursuits, from wine and golf to fishing and travel.
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.
When we think of something being ancient, we automatically think that's a bad thing. When we become 'ancient' we are older and having trouble doing things that at one time was not a challenge for us. But, it's a different story when we're talking about ancient furniture.
Speaking of the outdoors, don't think for a moment that round accent tables are for indoor use only. While you don't want to use an indoor table outside, manufacturers have created outdoor versions of the accent table, so you can enjoy the same style of furnishings inside and out.
