So whether your room needs a little romance or a little sparkle you'll find it in an end table. Try a larger or striking one between a pair of chairs or a pair of matching tables to flank a sofa. Choose from twisted wood legs, glass or marble tops and leather inlays to find the table that is right for you.
If you're looking for a stunning set of end tables, you really can't go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction, they can come in an endless array of finishes, design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements, which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
Some people would say they could just pull out a folding table and use that as a space to put the drinks. Think back to the last time you really saw at a folding table. It may have been as a child at the 'kiddie table' during a holiday meal, or at some poker game with your college buddies. Do you really want that flimsy table to be holding up everyone's drinks. Consider a bump of the table during the game. How many colors will your carpet turn when the drinks start splashing over? You don't really want to think of what it will take to get red wine out, do you?
Finally, there's color to consider. When choosing the perfect table you want to consider the wood. If you're upholstered furniture has wood accents, you want the table woods to match. For example, stay with cherry or at least a dark wood if your sofa or chairs have cherry accents or match blond woods with blood woods. You don't have to use all the same shape of tables when choosing the perfect end table. But you do want to create a family feel. The style, color, finish and accents can tie them all together.
For use in bedrooms, end tables can be used as decorative accents. A table lamp, a handcrafted lacy doily, and perhaps some framed photographs or artwork placed creatively on a round pedestal end table can dress up a blank wall or an empty corner.
So how do you go about choosing the right table? The first considerations are scale and the space available. An end table shouldn't dominate the space it's in. Rather, it should complement the other furnishings, especially those pieces nearest it. Additionally, if you already have a coffee table in place, you want the end tables to be in the same finish and style.
