With a little imagination, accent tables can add visual splendor to any space you have in your home, indoors and out.
Some have even have more tricks up their sleeves, such as handsome oak magazine cabinets that have a built-in magazine rack (also perfect for holding a laptop by the way) and a small slide-out table that pulls out from the front so that you can have a cup of tea and still have room for a lamp the table's top.
O.K. Your room is all finished. Well, almost finished. Something still doesn't quite look right and even though you have all the major players in place - the sofa, love seat, a couple of occasional chairs and a coffee table - something still feels as if it is missing.
This takes a bit of design know-how, however. You have to find a common thread that ties all the tables together so they look like they belong. That's not to say they have to match, only that they complement one another. For example, you can choose new living room tables that are all different sizes, but share the same basic veneer pattern on the top, such as a sunburst or compass.
While rectangular or square accent tables will certainly fill the bill as an end table as well, you can also use them on the sides of your bed. One of the great things bout these tables is that they can each be different. Whether you use them in the living room or in the bedroom, you can actually use two different tables, such as one that's rectangular and one that's round, but in the same general style and finish. It's O.K. if they are very decorative, they are meant to be.
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.
