If your room is small, look for a rectangular table the same depth as your sofa, but relatively narrow (14-18 inches). If your sofa has a rounded back or arms, consider a pair of elegantly rounded or oval tables. If you need to save space, use a set of nesting tables on either side of your sofa, and for maximum utility, choose tables with built-in storage; everyone needs space to store remote controls and DVD's. Even the smallest of tables can hold a single flower in a vase. For special occasions, have a suitable vase ready to hold fresh flowers, but for every day, buy a stem of a realistic (often described as 'real touch') but artificial bloom. Just one or two in a small vase will make a huge difference. A flower and a set of candles may be all your need to add a striking accent color to your room; keep the major furnishing neutral and it's an easy, inexpensive process when you want to change your color scheme.
In addition to choosing a unique shape, you can also have some fun choosing tables with all their attractive decorations. For example, if you have a Victorian setting in one room of your home you may want to choose a table that has beautiful roses painted on it or carved into it. Or, if you have a modern and contemporary look to your home, go for something that seems more industrial or Art Deco. You can even have fun looking for beautifully carved pieces of wood to go with a country or French romantic theme to your home.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
Teak wood tables function in a variety of ways and complement homes of many sizes. The most notable quality of teak tables is the subtle beauty of their craftsmanship. Teak tables create an elegance unsurpassed by other, more common woods.
Plant stands. If you want to add greenery to your room, you could start by choosing the right side table that can hold several plants or flower arrangements to add color, freshness and a little bit of oxygen to your room.
Once you have made the decision to get on you need to look around at your existing furniture and think of what finish would work in the room. You can get a well crafted table in many different finishes such as cherry, oak, cedar, pine, also available in a wide variety of metal finishes. You want something a little more traditional try looking at some of the wood finishes. So that's not quite your style take a look at maybe something a little more elegant like a glass top round accent table.
