They fill in the small gaps in your room that are begging for a piece of furniture but which would be overwhelmed by a larger piece. These small accent tables fill the bill perfectly, allowing you to add another table that completes the room as no other piece of furniture can.
Style and Shape. The two most important features of an accent table are the style and shape. Falling in love with a beautiful contemporary accent table does you no good if the rest of the furniture in your house is in a classical style. Just think about the style of the other furnishings in your home and try to find an accent table that falls in line with them.
Some accent tables have been crafted with a particular purpose in mind. Telephone tables were very popular during the reign of tabletop rotary dial telephones, and were designed to hold the telephone on the surface with a drawer underneath to hold the telephone directory. Entry tables were designated to stand stately next to the home's main entry door, often under a mirror where one might check her appearance before retrieving her car keys from the drawer of the table and leaving the house. Regardless, all of them can play double duty in your home.
One of the great things about small accent tables is that though they are small, they aren't wallflowers. They can be very ornate and inviting, commanding a lot of attention, even with their small size.
When selecting accent tables for any décor, you want to make sure that you choose wisely. While you can go crazy picking a style or theme, you still want to make sure it fits into the general overall look of the room. For example, if you have a living room of overstuffed pieces with rich wood accents, you don't want to add a white crackle finished accent table that would look more at home in a country or rustic styled room.
Also remember that tables meant to work as an accent feature many not always be entirely functional. This means that the purpose of the table may be to act as a space filler to draw the eye into something interesting rather than allowing your gaze to be swallowed inside an empty and boring room. This type of table can be used as an end table or even a table that goes right in the middle of the room. There are so many different things you can do with this type of table that you will not understand why you didn't think of it before.
