If you're looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your décor, an end table is what you need.
Choosing the perfect end table can be a very personal choice, and well it should be, given the tremendous selection that is out in the marketplace these days.
You think end tables are called end tables because they are the last piece of furniture that you put in a room, but they don't have to be. If you find a great end table somewhere that could be your starting point, your inspiration for the décor of your room.
Another benefit of using a reputable antique dealer for your antique end tables purchases is that you won't have to settle for just what is in the shop. If your dealer knows what you are looking for, they can add it to the list of things they are searching for when they bring in new inventory. You will essentially have your own personal shopper who is looking for the perfect antique end tables to be added to your home.
When thinking about shape, you also want to consider the style. For beginners, you're always safe going with a table that has straight legs and lines if the furniture around it also has straight lines. The same is true with a curved, leggy piece. It will tend to look better with more ornate furnishings.
These can work well in a bedroom too, if you want a different look than the traditional pair of matched nightstands. If space is at a premium, you can go with a single drum table instead, allowing you to have a place to put your lamp and clock while still having lots of storage down below.
