Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement. The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact, because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa, enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture, but not so far as to place your cup out of each.
Round end tables are a perennial favorite of designers and you will love the relaxed look and convenience they offer you, whether you use them in your living room, bedrooms or any other room in the home that can benefit from a table that is just as sensible as it is versatile.
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.
Tray tables: If you're not planning to add a lamp to the end tables in your living room, you can opt for tray tables instead. These have easy to remove trays that you can use for serving food or beverages. The rest of the time, tray tables look just like end tables.
Antique end tables, on the other hand, are much more affordable options that still can have the same impact on your home.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
