Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
Have you ever really considered what kind of abuse you cause to some of the pieces of furniture in your home? A lot of people think about things like the sofa or perhaps even a kitchen table when it comes to the most used pieces of furniture in their home that get a lot of use and abuse. However there are some less appreciated pieces that are doing just as hard of a job and rarely get the appreciation they deserve for their hard work.
So what kind of side table should you purchase for your home? Well, if you've been watching this year's furniture fashion trends, you know you have a lot of variety for some very unique pieces of furniture. One of the trends this year is for shapes. We are not talking about traditional shapes here, but unique shapes of furniture that are different than what you are accustomed to seeing every day. For example, there are half moon shaped tables, zigzag tables, multilevel tables, and many more out of these days that you can choose from.
Socializing. Finally, wooden side tables are perfect in a pinch when you need some extra table space, or for outdoor gatherings. Pair these end tables with some Adirondack chairs and you won't even need a large patio table clogging up your deck space. It's like taking a full sized table and breaking it into smaller pieces that can be placed at each guest's side. This way, it's more convenient for people not having to walk over to set down their plate if they're not seated directly at the table, while providing a private little area upon which they can keep their things.
Modern furniture puts an emphasis on glass, however real wood is generally far easier to care for. If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.
Side tables are extremely useful in many facets in the home. First, they can be put in traditional locations such as beside a sofa, chair or other piece of furniture were you may be sitting and need to set something down on a table surface. But also, they can be used as a way to show off some of the things you have in your home. For instance, if you have a statue that you really like, a side table may be a perfect base to set that statue on. Additionally, many a side table are stackable, yet ready for any use that might be asked of them. Some of these tables can be tucked into a corner or under one another until they are needed.
