For instance, some end tables just don't scale well in a room, especially when you have a large sectional that dominates the landscape. Smaller accent tables can fill the bill perfectly, as you can get one that is thinner but no less useful.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
Shapes of accent tables are varied to offer customers the greatest selection, with round, rectangular, square, and corner triangles dominating the market.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
With a little imagination, accent tables can add visual splendor to any space you have in your home, indoors and out.
That's one of the great things about accent tables, their versatility. But don't think for a moment that they need to be reserved for the living room alone. You can add these tables to virtually any room in the home. Thanks to their small size and flexibility, you can add a table in any room that needs a real standout piece to accent the existing décor.
