If you have an eye for design and want to create a space that is both fashionable and functional, you may want to select accent tables that serve multiple purposes. Favorites include revolving bookcase tables with multiple levels to display your collection of first edition Stephen King novels. Drum tables are also popular since they offer lots of storage inside. This is a particularly good choice for those of us who have too much stuff in their homes and want to keep some of the clutter out of sight.
Accent tables can also be bought as single units to create a diverting look; or in a set for an integrated appearance. There is an accent table to suit any kind of décor, taste and budget and its use is only limited by your imagination!
The use of an decorative accent table can come in many ways. Often end tables are placed next to a sofa, loveseat, sectional, or chair keeping in mind that the top of the table should never be higher than the arm height. For the best results, try to plan on the arm height being at its crown 1 inch taller than the table. Console accent tables make great conversation pieces behind a sofa or placed on a plain wall with two small lamps on top. Doing this kind of placement will help show off any decorative accessories or pictures that you might have on top of it.
Also remember that tables meant to work as an accent feature many not always be entirely functional. This means that the purpose of the table may be to act as a space filler to draw the eye into something interesting rather than allowing your gaze to be swallowed inside an empty and boring room. This type of table can be used as an end table or even a table that goes right in the middle of the room. There are so many different things you can do with this type of table that you will not understand why you didn't think of it before.
They fill in the small gaps in your room that are begging for a piece of furniture but which would be overwhelmed by a larger piece. These small accent tables fill the bill perfectly, allowing you to add another table that completes the room as no other piece of furniture can.
Small accent tables work great in any room in the home, or even a hallway where a console table or bench may be too big. A lot of models even offer dresser-like qualities, being fronted with drawers for storing linens, holiday goodies or wrapping paper.
