Thankfully, there is still a great selection of round coffee tables online and online retailers in some cases, have them priced to move. In contrast to square end tables, round ones can give your room a much softer look, making it more friendly and inviting. This is due to the tricks our eyes like to play on us. For reasons beyond the scope of this article, our eye associates square, blocky items as being more formal, while round and oval are seen as more approachable and relaxed.
If you're not a confident interior designer, stay away from the temptation to create drama with a standout piece. This can go horribly wrong. A good way to avoid this is to shop online for the right end table. This will allow you to mix and match pieces until you get just the look you're looking for.
To narrow your selection, start by the style, then the size. Many end tables come in different sizes. You also want to pay particularly attention to the height. There's no set standard height of an end table, but the general rule of thumb is that it should be within two inches of the furniture it is next to, so guests don't have to reach down to set a glass or dish while they visit.
Nesting end tables can also come in handy during those big screen sports events your family loves to host. If you don't have a coffee table or it it's too small to handle the munchies and drinks of a big game, you can pull out the nesting tables and put them into immediate service.
So how to you narrow down your choices?
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases, this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or 'coffee table' books. Whatever your purpose is, your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
