Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
So you're in the neighborhood looking for that right little something to put beside your favorite chair to add a little something to your living room or bedroom. Might I suggest a small purchase of an elegant round side table? Complimenting and accent the table just the way they do it in the magazines. What better way do you have to show off your personality than using a round accent table? This could be just what the doctor ordered for your space.
If you are very much fond of antiques and if you are looking around for a good mahogany side table, then there are chances that you just might not be sure what may suit the decor of your home. You can always try searching a number of catalogs online looking for different styles of tables so you can make your best decision.
Nightstands in the bedrooms. Because they are small and light you can use these tables in the bedroom in place of nightstands. In fact, you can end up with two entirely different styles, tied together with matching lamps.
A side table is neither a coffee table nor an end table. Rather, it is a table that can be distinct in an of itself, allowing you to stray from the status quo of a room and add a little panache of personality that is all your own.
If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
