Most people have a number of different items in their living rooms, as this is usually where sofas, chairs, couches, televisions, and other commonly used pieces of furniture are kept. When you select the furniture accent tables that you want, you should be sure to compare it with the items that you already have in your home, just to be sure that everything matches up. The table that you choose will end up being a part of your living room for a long time to come, so make sure that you are sure about your selection before making your final decision.
While a coffee table can be a real treasured addition to your living room, end tables can be a bit of a bore. Often they are simply refashioned versions of the coffee table, which lose something in the translation.
Accent tables as end tables are really popular these days, largely because you can mix and match them, but also because they allow you to show off a bit of your personality, choosing pieces that not only fit the space well, but reflect your style and personal tastes.
That's because they come in so many styles, themes and colors. You can get round accent tables that have just a touch of the Orient or ones that look as if they were picked up at an estate sale in England, rich in exotic and complex wood veneer designs.
Round end tables even make a great alternate to traditional end tables, adding a lot of visual impact to the room, since square or rectangular end tables are usually the rule. Accent tables that are round or oval make a delightful exception to this rule. You can even make a bolder statement by going with a pedestal table instead of a traditional table with four legs.
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.
