When it comes to furnishings in the living space, the number of people who are in the home at the time dictate what is really needed to make it a good space. If there are just a few of you, you only need one or two end tables and they will take care of holding drinks, a lamp, and maybe a few appetizers, so you can kick back and enjoy your favorite show. But what if you are entertaining? If you have a number of people over, and break into a game of charades, a pair of end tables aren't going to be enough to hold all the drinks and other things they want to put down. You don't want those guests trying to play charades holding drinks in their hands, do you?
Chairside Tables: End tables can be used as chairside tables, of course. The only difference is the chairside table often has a smaller footprint and is sized to place next to a recliner or chair. Smaller end tables can do the same thing, offering you flexibility in your room designs.
Which room will host the end table?
Thankfully, there is still a great selection of round coffee tables online and online retailers in some cases, have them priced to move. In contrast to square end tables, round ones can give your room a much softer look, making it more friendly and inviting. This is due to the tricks our eyes like to play on us. For reasons beyond the scope of this article, our eye associates square, blocky items as being more formal, while round and oval are seen as more approachable and relaxed.
One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you don't have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design, just different sizes.
Things to Keep in Mind. An important factor to take into account when purchasing an end table is your existing décor, as you'll want it to be in tune with the overall flow of your space. For example, if you've gone with a modern, avant-garde ambiance in your living room, than getting a classically designed end table will completely upset the room's balance.
