Practical and Beautiful! An accent table allows you to express your creative touches around the room effortlessly, brightening up any drab area. It can blend in perfectly with any kind of space - be it a niche corner, wall, a spacious entryway or even a bathroom - lending completeness to any living space. You can go ahead and flaunt your favorite curios, place some endearing photographs or just a place to keep your drink; whatever the purpose, a table can match it beautifully.
This takes a bit of design know-how, however. You have to find a common thread that ties all the tables together so they look like they belong. That's not to say they have to match, only that they complement one another. For example, you can choose new living room tables that are all different sizes, but share the same basic veneer pattern on the top, such as a sunburst or compass.
In contrast to end tables, accent tables don't come in pairs and are more ornate and embellished than your average end table. This allows you to add a little flair and flourish to your room by adding an accent table here or there that is in contrast to the other furnishings. An accent, if you will, to your other décor.
One of the great things about small accent tables is that though they are small, they aren't wallflowers. They can be very ornate and inviting, commanding a lot of attention, even with their small size.
After deciding on style, theme and other particulars, finding the perfect accent table for that empty space will be easy. You can shop online for it and you won't have to fight crowds, bad weather, traffic snarls and cranky kids or sales associates. With so many to choose from online, it will be easy to find just the "right one" to finish that room with the perfect decorating touch.
Style and Shape. The two most important features of an accent table are the style and shape. Falling in love with a beautiful contemporary accent table does you no good if the rest of the furniture in your house is in a classical style. Just think about the style of the other furnishings in your home and try to find an accent table that falls in line with them.
