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.
This is a terrific idea, by the way. Whenever you get new round end tables for the living room, you can re purpose the old ones in other rooms, adding a new table to your master, a kid's room or even a bathroom. Not only a great use of your old furniture, but very Eco-friendly too.
So how to you narrow down your choices?
If you are a little uneasy about coordinating furnishings, you can get a fully-coordinated look when you buy a suite of furniture-sofa and loveseat, sectional and club chairs, coffee table and living room end tables, lamps and accessories. Take measurements and maybe draw a sketch of your living room-place the entryways and windows carefully--before you head out to shop. If they look great but don't fit, those new tables won't do you a bit of good.
Color. After you know exactly how much space you have to work with, then it is time to consider color. An end table that matches your furniture is always best. These days end tables can be either solid wood or ready to assemble, which is made of a much lighter wood that must be put together. Tables can be metal and glass, or they can be completely wood. The black wrought iron look is always a classic, and when paired with glass, it comes across quite elegant in any space. Also color can come across in the type of wood you choose. Shoppers who are looking for a reddish tint will want to look for a lighter cherry or mahogany wood, while those who want a very light colored wood black should opt for oak.
Some people purchase their tables as part of a table set. This usually includes a matching coffee table. But you don't have to purchase them this way. Conceivably, each table can be different, if they have the same general design elements, the same palette of color or stain, the same architectural lines, etc. If you have two end tables in the room, you do want these to match, but they can contrast with the coffee table.
