When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First, the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them, say a strip of silver or brass along the front, you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you're trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You'll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making, going with a similar finish for your end tables.
However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
In order to take care of a large number of people in your home, you are going to need a lot of table space. While you could think about renting out tables and such for this event, another option is to utilize items you already have in your home, like square end tables.
The good news is that you can use whatever you like in your rooms these days. There's no need to be locked in the 1950s with the traditional end tables and coffee table set. Use your imagination and find ones that look wonderful in your home, no matter what others call them.
They will also know how to tell the difference between great fake antique end tables and the real things. This knowledge could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a fraudulent purchase.
Besides having ornamental appeal, end tables give you a platform to display mementos, knick-knacks or artwork. End tables also provide space for innovative lighting throughout your home. Place a lamp on an end table to give your home a softer, more intimate ambiance.
