So what kind of side table should you purchase for your home? Well, if you've been watching this year's furniture fashion trends, you know you have a lot of variety for some very unique pieces of furniture. One of the trends this year is for shapes. We are not talking about traditional shapes here, but unique shapes of furniture that are different than what you are accustomed to seeing every day. For example, there are half moon shaped tables, zigzag tables, multilevel tables, and many more out of these days that you can choose from.
If space is at a premium, you may want to consider nesting tables or side tables where the top can be locked in an upright position so it sits flush against the wall. It can then be lowered and used while entertaining, but remain out of the way the rest of the time. Some side tables are also stackable, so you can create a multi-tiered shelf-like arrangement that can be used to display knickknacks most of the time but be pressed into service during a party or the holidays when every inch of table space is at a premium.
In more decorative point of view, you could place one in your entryway and display beautiful flowers and prized possessions. It could also serve the purpose as a place to set everyday essentials such as your key's, mail, and could even hide some of your shoes underneath it to make your entryway look more beautiful and functional.
The first thing you need to think of when it comes to glass tables is that you want to keep them looking bright and beautiful looking. Regularly dust and wash off the tabletop surface. You may also want to use Windex and some other similar chemical to really clean the glass and make it shine.
Modern furniture puts an emphasis on glass, however real wood is generally far easier to care for. If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.
When people think of side tables, they always seem to refer to end tables; which is not the case. Side tables are tables that can be placed anywhere in your home, such as bedroom, living room, office, and many more. The possibilities are endless when it comes to these beautiful pieces of furniture.
