Accent tables come in so many shapes, styles and finishes that it's really something of a catch-all term. In its most basic form, an accent table is a small table that can easily be placed next to a sofa or chair.
If you're a collector, think about getting a glass-topped display table. The drawer opens below it so you can add your collection of artifacts from your travels or seashells from your trip to the beach. You can even make little memory boxes of your favorite things from your children.
Every home has it: that blank spot where nothing seems to fit. Too small for a furniture-seating piece, and too large for a plant, there must be something that would be just perfect! The answer is accent tables. One is ideal for any room in the house, and for any spot in any room.
Add accent tables to any room in your home, and you will find that you have added not only an attractive feature to the room but a useful one as well.
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.
Accent tables for any décor come in many styles. You can get tables that have intricate inlays or have ornate carvings and embellishments. They can have drawers where you can put some of your collectibles so they show through the glass top or they can reflect your individual tastes and interests, such as have a wine or nautical theme. Or they can add a bit of exotic flair to the room, harkening back to the days of the British West Indies or old Bombay. There are accent tables for any décor imaginable, from very formal pieces to modern tables that are minimalist in form but big on function.
