Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
A lack of space can be the enemy in home décor. If you have taken a walk around a furniture store you likely see mostly furnishings that fit well into a home that has a large floor plan, or even a moderate floor plan. But if you are living in a small condominium or apartment, there's no way those items are going to fit into your home.
The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
Other end tables have fold out tops. These offer even more tabletop space for games that use a lot of pieces or for a few people to have a place to set their plates and drinks.
End tables create a visual interruption in the room to spice up the over all look. Imagine walking into a room and seeing nothing but a number of overstuffed floral print furniture pieces. With nothing to break up the endless cycle of flowers, the look would be overwhelming. But the simple addition of a pair of small, decorative end tables with a complimentary yet contrasting design will break up that floral pattern and make the overall look of the room less overwhelming and much more comforting and appealing.
Protect them From Scratches. End tables get more abuse than most other pieces of furniture in your home. They are always being banged around and beaten up by everyone who walks around your home. Think about all the times that someone has turned the corner beside your sofa a little too tight and ran right into the table? Between that and plates, purses and anything else they may be setting down on the end tables and picking up again, there are likely to be a lot of dings and scratches on your end tables if you don't protect them.
