Small accent tables work great in any room in the home, or even a hallway where a console table or bench may be too big. A lot of models even offer dresser-like qualities, being fronted with drawers for storing linens, holiday goodies or wrapping paper.
Accent tables for any décor come in many styles. You can get tables that have intricate inlays or have ornate carvings and embellishments. They can have drawers where you can put some of your collectibles so they show through the glass top or they can reflect your individual tastes and interests, such as have a wine or nautical theme. Or they can add a bit of exotic flair to the room, harkening back to the days of the British West Indies or old Bombay. There are accent tables for any décor imaginable, from very formal pieces to modern tables that are minimalist in form but big on function.
The best thing about an accent table is how unique each one is. Accent tables are perfect for adding a little bit of style, elegance, or whatever type of air your space needs. An accent table can be stylish, modern, contemporary, classic, or antique, and it often provides the best solution for adding some additional personality to your room. Of course before you go shopping for an accent table, there are several things to keep in mind.
Color. Another important aspect of an accent table is color. Lighter woods can look amazing when mixed with darker woods in other pieces of furniture, and a white wood table can really make black wood furniture stand out. Remember that an accent table is all about drawing the eye and making a dramatic effect, so avoid tables that blend into your other furniture.
When selecting accent tables for any décor, you want to make sure that you choose wisely. While you can go crazy picking a style or theme, you still want to make sure it fits into the general overall look of the room. For example, if you have a living room of overstuffed pieces with rich wood accents, you don't want to add a white crackle finished accent table that would look more at home in a country or rustic styled room.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
