Accent tables that have tilt tops allow you to place the table against a wall when it's not needed. When you're entertaining, you can simply pull the table over to where it's needed most and secure the latch to lock the table top down. A tilt top is a great space saver.
For a more rustic look in the yard, nothing beats those made of Northern White Cedar. Over time, the table will weather beautifully, taking on a silvery appearance. Red cedar offers a cleaner, less rustic look. It too will age nicely and the red cedar can take whatever winter throws at it since it is impervious to the elements as well as bugs.
Nesting tables continue to be another popular option for those who have some tight quarters but really need some extra tables for entertaining. Small in stature, these tables can stack one under another until needed, then be spread throughout the room, creating a functional yet synergistic look that allows you to entertain in style.
But accent tables can really jazz up the room, taking the place of end tables and defining the corners of your sofa, love seat or even a couple of oversized occasional chairs, where an end table is often used as a makeshift table between them.
When selecting accent tables for any décor, you want to make sure that you choose wisely. While you can go crazy picking a style or theme, you still want to make sure it fits into the general overall look of the room. For example, if you have a living room of overstuffed pieces with rich wood accents, you don't want to add a white crackle finished accent table that would look more at home in a country or rustic styled room.
When furniture becomes ancient it's a good thing. It's called an antique and becomes an item of much more value and one that is wanted by the masses.
