Round tables are particularly adept at being a chameleon in the home. They can serve so many roles, flitting from one room to another over the years, going from a standalone table in the living room or end tables to serving as a nightstand in the bedroom.
Picking out the right accent table may be a lot easier than you think. There are so many different styles and designs to choose from today, it shouldn't be very difficult to find exactly what you need to fill that bare spot. Accent tables come in many different shapes and sizes. You can find small, tall, round or oval accent tables, cutout detail tables for the corner, pedestal tables for that elegant look, tables in black, white, scalloped or carved, and wooden tables with or without drawers or shelves. You will also find tables that can be used as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, console tables, entry tables, hall tables and cabinets that will do double duty as an accent table.
Even what may look like worn out accent tables may not be done, quite yet. Just because an accent table becomes old or unwanted that doesn't mean that it is ready for the trash. A bit of sanding and a fresh coat of paint and that old accent table will become brand new and you will find new uses for the same old table.
Or you can tie architectural details together, such as getting different accent tables that have the same finial work or legs. You can also go with the same finish on the tables matching one cherry accent table with another, even though they have different patterns or styles. That said, you need to be careful that you pick two that have the same tonal value and coloration. A bright red cherry table matched with a darker one can look out of place, unless you plan to set them at different ends of a furniture grouping to so visitors can't see the difference. It's far wiser, as long as you're getting new living room accent tables anyway, to make sure they match.
Round accent tables also work well on their own. You can use them in your living room, great room or home office to provide additional space to display photos, knickknacks and keepsakes. They are also wonderful for plants, bringing a little of the outdoors into your home.
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.
