When shopping for new living room accent tables, don't forget to consider these tables for other areas of the room. For example you can buy a second table that matches one of the ones that bookend your sofa and use it across the room. Because they have the same pattern and features, they will tie nicely together. Add a plant to it, use it to display family photos or let your iPad serve up an ever rotating slideshow from your recent family vacation. An accent table is perfect for this use. Since accent tables can vary in height, be sure you order one that will work for you. For example, a tall plant may work better on a slightly shorter accent table while you'll want photos to be up a bit higher.
When furniture becomes ancient it's a good thing. It's called an antique and becomes an item of much more value and one that is wanted by the masses.
One of the great things about small accent tables is that though they are small, they aren't wallflowers. They can be very ornate and inviting, commanding a lot of attention, even with their small size.
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.
Nesting tables continue to be another popular option for those who have some tight quarters but really need some extra tables for entertaining. Small in stature, these tables can stack one under another until needed, then be spread throughout the room, creating a functional yet synergistic look that allows you to entertain in style.
The use of an decorative accent table can come in many ways. Often end tables are placed next to a sofa, loveseat, sectional, or chair keeping in mind that the top of the table should never be higher than the arm height. For the best results, try to plan on the arm height being at its crown 1 inch taller than the table. Console accent tables make great conversation pieces behind a sofa or placed on a plain wall with two small lamps on top. Doing this kind of placement will help show off any decorative accessories or pictures that you might have on top of it.
