Barrels - In this day and age of rustic décor popularity, why not take the theme to your end tables, through barrels. For a real county look, consider a couple of old whiskey barrels as end tables. Many a barrel are finished and sealed to make them attractive, and very sturdy, end table additions. If you really want to make the look fun, you can get blank barrels and write your own words on the side, with your family name or other phrase that means something to you and your family. You can even have a piece of glass to fit in the end to have a glass top.
Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
Some people purchase their tables as part of a table set. This usually includes a matching coffee table. But you don't have to purchase them this way. Conceivably, each table can be different, if they have the same general design elements, the same palette of color or stain, the same architectural lines, etc. If you have two end tables in the room, you do want these to match, but they can contrast with the coffee table.
Here's a little tip in that regard. If you have wood accents on your upholstered pieces, you want to pick the same type of wood, stain or color for your coffee and end table sets. This will ensure that they look like a family of pieces, rather than having something stick out like a sore thumb because it's the wrong color.
End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
Beyond style and size, you really want to think about features. While you wouldn't ordinarily think about a piece of furniture as having desirable features, coffee and end table sets can have an endless array.
