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.
If you're looking for a stunning set of end tables, you really can't go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction, they can come in an endless array of finishes, design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements, which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
Measure, Measure, Measure. Finally, make sure that you measure the space you have available to you before shopping. If the end tables do not fit in the space you have, then they are not a savings. You would be surprised how many people go shopping for tables and then forget to measure their space. End tables are often squeezed into the smallest space available in a living room or family room, so it is far too easy to purchase a table that is larger than the available space.
Traditionally we don't think of end tables of adding much style to a room they usually have simple straight lines and are pretty plain. But you need to open your mind to really see the potential end tables have for making a statement in your living room.
If glass and metal are more your thing, then you are probably looking for a more contemporary style. Glass with black metal is a little more classic while still remaining contemporary, while glass and silver or gold metal offers a unique flair that adds color and style to any room. Some metal and glass tables even come in sets of three nesting tables. Nesting tables are a contemporary solution to the space problem so many people have. They can be pulled out to provide plenty of table space when it is needed, or they can be nested, one over the other, so that there is less table space and more room to walk around as needed. Another element of style in an end table is plain or fancy. Some of the plainest tables fit more easily into tight corners, although you shouldn't give up hope on a fancy or ornate table if all you have is a tiny space. The wide variety of tables available means you are sure to find anything you are looking for.
Just because pieces of furniture don't have a label that call them end tables doesn't mean they can't play the role of end tables. When you are decorating, you should not feel locked in to using one specific style of furniture to complete your room. This article will show you that end tables are in the eye of the beholder.
