End Tables: Though they've been separated from their coffee table siblings, end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
Antique end tables, on the other hand, are much more affordable options that still can have the same impact on your home.
One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you don't have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design, just different sizes.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
Many antique pieces are lovely and functional, and bring a rustic look to the room. With the aged appearance of the finish, antique styles lend a handcrafted grace and can be used as a focal point in the room. For a more modern décor, glass topped tables may enhance the overall style in the room.
When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you don't want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you don't want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room.
