Wooden or Metal Chest - Nautical styling is in and many furniture décor stores are offering a wide variety of beautiful chests in both wood and metal for home accents. But why not make them functional as well as an accent. A pair of tall chests at the ends of your sofa or between your furniture settings can create a great set of decorative end tables. You can also make end tables out of a series of stacked graduated chests.
Round end tables can also break up the straight lines of a room, particularly if you have a sectional with a square coffee table, or a sofa and loveseat paired with a traditional rectangle set of coffee and end tables. A round table, either on a single end of the upholstered furnishings or both sides, offers the eyes a nice surprise.
Not everyone has a budget to purchase large antique pieces. Tens of thousands of dollars for a large antique desk or armoire may not be a part of your budget, as that's a lot of money to be out for one piece of furniture.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
Space. One of the first things every shopper should do before looking for an end table is measure the amount of space available. This is especially true in cases where you have a couch up against a wall in a space that fits rather tightly. There is no point in seriously considering any end table if it does not fit in the space you have, so be sure to measure carefully before you go shopping.
When selecting end tables of metal, be sure you shop with a reputable seller who handles quality products. There may be a reason why you to such a good deal on a metal table. The metal welds may be inferior, the fit may not be good between the different pieces and the materials themselves may not be high quality, causing the finish to flake off within months of your purchase. As with any piece of furniture, end tables are a major investment and you want to make sure that you are getting top quality for the budget you have available. You certainly don't want to fall in love with a set of end tables that are the perfect fit for your room, only to have them fall apart on you.
