Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
Next, there are end tables that can serve other functions.
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.
Speaking of bedrooms, don't think that nesting end tables can't be used as nightstands. They are a great solution for the bedroom too, replacing the traditional nightstand with a much more useful and versatile stack of matching tables that can either be stacked out of sight and out of mind bedside or used throughout the room, tying in the décor with matching tables that can always be nested again on a moment's notice.
If glass and metal are more your thing, then you are probably looking for a more contemporary style. Glass with black metal is a little more classic while still remaining contemporary, while glass and silver or gold metal offers a unique flair that adds color and style to any room. Some metal and glass tables even come in sets of three nesting tables. Nesting tables are a contemporary solution to the space problem so many people have. They can be pulled out to provide plenty of table space when it is needed, or they can be nested, one over the other, so that there is less table space and more room to walk around as needed. Another element of style in an end table is plain or fancy. Some of the plainest tables fit more easily into tight corners, although you shouldn't give up hope on a fancy or ornate table if all you have is a tiny space. The wide variety of tables available means you are sure to find anything you are looking for.
Round end tables can also break up the straight lines of a room, particularly if you have a sectional with a square coffee table, or a sofa and loveseat paired with a traditional rectangle set of coffee and end tables. A round table, either on a single end of the upholstered furnishings or both sides, offers the eyes a nice surprise.
