When you are out looking for a new set of tables for your home, consider the accent table and bring some life into an otherwise boring living room decor. Do not let just the interior Designers and their clients have all the fun. Use this decorating tip when considering when you want to give your home a little excitement.
One of the great things about outdoor accent tables is that they can be used a number of ways. Since they're so sturdy, they work well as an ottoman for other lawn furnishings or as extra seating when you have lots of guests over for a cookout.
The same is true in scale. You can have a dominant table and a smaller table, or even two that are the same size. But they shouldn't be too large or too small to fit in the space you have in mind. For example, there's nothing wrong with getting new living room accent tables that are different shapes - say one rectangle and one oval - and using them in place of end tables. But you don't want them to be too large or too small for the location, either overshadowing your sofa, loveseat or chair or simply willowing away because they're too small.
If you have a guestroom with a hide-a-bed or a futon, you'll find that round tables make a nice nightstand there too. Best of all, it can be quickly repositioned to be used as a computer stand, game table or to eat dinner on. Most accent tables are fairly light, allowing them to be easily moved around the home.
One of the great things about accent tables is there are so many choices out there. You can purchase models that are very ornate, lovingly crafted with intricate inlays and scrolled edging. Or you can go with accent tables that are very modern and minimalist, fitting perfectly in with a contemporary sofa or modern sectional. If you really have a passion, you can show these off with these tables, too. There are accent tables that are themed to any number of pursuits, from wine and golf to fishing and travel.
While you could conceivably get just one table and let it serve these different roles over the years, you'll find round accent tables hard to resist. By their very nature, they are spectacular pieces, meant to be the centerpiece of any space it is placed in. And while it can be the focal point, round tables are just as happy playing a supporting role.
