So what kind of side table should you purchase for your home? Well, if you've been watching this year's furniture fashion trends, you know you have a lot of variety for some very unique pieces of furniture. One of the trends this year is for shapes. We are not talking about traditional shapes here, but unique shapes of furniture that are different than what you are accustomed to seeing every day. For example, there are half moon shaped tables, zigzag tables, multilevel tables, and many more out of these days that you can choose from.
However, choosing the right table still requires that you follow some general principles, or should we say guidelines. Since it is still part of the room, it can't be so glaringly different that it distracts from the focal point of the room or create conflict in the eye of the beholder. It should stand out for the right reasons, not the wrong ones. That's why choosing the right table requires a delicate balance between your own preferences and traditional standards in design.
The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
A great idea might be for you take some pictures along with you of the existing décor in your room. This should help you in finding the perfect match to your style and personality. You want to get something that will accent your belongings not take control over them. Keeping with the same basic theme is the way to go.
We're talking about side tables. Side tables are put in a number of places in your home and are used for any and every job from holding books to lamps to drinks and anything else you decide to put on the surface. From day to day their job changes and what you expect of them changes, yet you don't give them any extra love than you do the other pieces of furniture in your home.
Side tables can come in any shape, style, or design. It can be made from wood, glass, metal, and iron and stone! I personally prefer to use oak because it is a very attractive wood and color; this is almost impossible to argue with. Because of this, it is easily incorporated into a wide variety of homes decorated in a great many different styles. Some types of side tables are harder to match with existing furniture, but this rarely the case with oak. Suitable for both rustic homey décor and upscale, chic décor, an oak side table is attractive in almost every setting.
