To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
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.
When choosing the perfect end table, also know that they can come in different heights. There's no standardization for furniture, and you want to get a table that doesn't extend above the edge of your furniture or is so low that someone has to precariously reach over a sofa arm in order to set down their plate or glass.
One thing is certain. Nested tables that can be used as end tables offer homeowners a very flexible way to offer more bang for their buck in terms of table space without making the room look too crowded.
When it comes to storage, there are some with shelves, drawers, or a combination of the two, so you can pack a variety of things away in this space.
