So how do you go about choosing the right table? The first considerations are scale and the space available. An end table shouldn't dominate the space it's in. Rather, it should complement the other furnishings, especially those pieces nearest it. Additionally, if you already have a coffee table in place, you want the end tables to be in the same finish and style.
While styles and tastes have changed over the years, nesting tables have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. As manufacturers have developed new takes on this classic, new nesting end tables are finding their way back on the market in large numbers.
End-tables are an ideal choice as they have myriad uses in addition to being visually appealing. They can be used in various locations, such as in the living room beside a chair or sofa where they offer a guest room to place a glass or give you a place to keep the TV remote. In the bedroom, end tables placed beside your bed offer you viable space to keep your spectacles through the night or to put a lamp within arm's reach.
Among the magical spells end tables can work, they can take a large room and make it feel cozier. In a small room, end tables can make the room more cohesive looking and less like pieces of furniture are piled up on one another. This is quite an impressive feat in smaller rooms. Often these spaces seem too overcrowded when you try to put complete furniture groupings in them, but since end tables can be small, and fit into spaces other pieces of furniture cannot, they can create that complete look without compromising precious floor space.
These tables can provide built-in storage. Look for ones with shelves for books and magazines, and drawers for remote controls or a box of tissues. I own living room end tables that look like apothecary cabinets-they've got eight small drawers, each the perfect height to store DVD cases on end. Some tables come with built-in baskets for bulky storage, like the baby's stuffed animals and blanket. If you subscribe to more than a few magazines, you can find living room end tables with magazine racks.
You need to make your antique end tables purchases from a reputable antique dealer. There are many antiques dealers associations across the country. Doing a Google search should help you find some of these associations, and find out whether the antique dealer you are considering is in good standing.
