Accent tables for any décor will also work well in a guest room. For example, you can use a lovely accent table in lieu of a traditional nightstand, creating a different look that is still very functional. While you may forego drawers bedside, you can gain a nice table top with plenty of room for a lamp, book, reading glasses and other nighttime essentials. You can even add a crocheted or vintage lace doily on the top to add an extra homey touch. If you have enough room you can add another table on the other side of the bed, or perhaps place accent tables for any décor next to an overstuffed chair in the room so your guest has a place to get a little privacy. Add a floor lamp behind it and you have a quaint, comfortable getaway.
A very useful part of your living space, an accent table can create an impressive impact to any kind of décor. Giving a distinctive style and presence to your room, an accent table can provide an ideal solution for both functionality as well as aesthetic appeal. In fact, accent tables are an interior decorators well-kept secret which they use to accessorize furniture with, capture someone's eye and to personalize homes.
Some accent tables have been crafted with a particular purpose in mind. Telephone tables were very popular during the reign of tabletop rotary dial telephones, and were designed to hold the telephone on the surface with a drawer underneath to hold the telephone directory. Entry tables were designated to stand stately next to the home's main entry door, often under a mirror where one might check her appearance before retrieving her car keys from the drawer of the table and leaving the house. Regardless, all of them can play double duty in your home.
Many accent tables come in designs that capture your interests and passions. For instance, you can get accent tables with a travel theme, with a large compass design on the top done in exquisite veneers. Or you can find one that has a built-in wine rack on the bottom, allowing you to share your love of wine with visitors and guests.
One of the great things about small accent tables is that though they are small, they aren't wallflowers. They can be very ornate and inviting, commanding a lot of attention, even with their small size.
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.
