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 an eye for design and want to create a space that is both fashionable and functional, you may want to select accent tables that serve multiple purposes. Favorites include revolving bookcase tables with multiple levels to display your collection of first edition Stephen King novels. Drum tables are also popular since they offer lots of storage inside. This is a particularly good choice for those of us who have too much stuff in their homes and want to keep some of the clutter out of sight.
It is more than just a table, it must be finished in a decorative finish that is fascinating, made of multiple woods like maple and cherry. But, if you have just one wood like a cherry end table, it would not be considered an accent piece. A furniture manufacturer may design an interesting table that has a different type of styling that is not typical, or could be a combination of all these elements.
Accent tables that have tilt tops allow you to place the table against a wall when it's not needed. When you're entertaining, you can simply pull the table over to where it's needed most and secure the latch to lock the table top down. A tilt top is a great space saver.
Round accent tables also work well on their own. You can use them in your living room, great room or home office to provide additional space to display photos, knickknacks and keepsakes. They are also wonderful for plants, bringing a little of the outdoors into your home.
One kind of furniture that is often appreciated in this manner is accent tables. Accent tables provide a bit of extra storage as well as an attractive filler for what used to be a very empty space in your home.
