That's one of the great things about accent tables, their versatility. But don't think for a moment that they need to be reserved for the living room alone. You can add these tables to virtually any room in the home. Thanks to their small size and flexibility, you can add a table in any room that needs a real standout piece to accent the existing décor.
Of course, accent tables aren't limited to the inside of your home. The great outdoors can always use a place to put iced drinks and plates loaded with barbecue. Savvy designers have created lines of accent tables in the most popular woods for the outdoors - Northern White Cedar, Red Cedar and teak.
While a coffee table can be a real treasured addition to your living room, end tables can be a bit of a bore. Often they are simply refashioned versions of the coffee table, which lose something in the translation.
Picking out the right accent table may be a lot easier than you think. There are so many different styles and designs to choose from today, it shouldn't be very difficult to find exactly what you need to fill that bare spot. Accent tables come in many different shapes and sizes. You can find small, tall, round or oval accent tables, cutout detail tables for the corner, pedestal tables for that elegant look, tables in black, white, scalloped or carved, and wooden tables with or without drawers or shelves. You will also find tables that can be used as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, console tables, entry tables, hall tables and cabinets that will do double duty as an accent table.
Accent tables as end tables are really popular these days, largely because you can mix and match them, but also because they allow you to show off a bit of your personality, choosing pieces that not only fit the space well, but reflect your style and personal tastes.
Or you can tie architectural details together, such as getting different accent tables that have the same finial work or legs. You can also go with the same finish on the tables matching one cherry accent table with another, even though they have different patterns or styles. That said, you need to be careful that you pick two that have the same tonal value and coloration. A bright red cherry table matched with a darker one can look out of place, unless you plan to set them at different ends of a furniture grouping to so visitors can't see the difference. It's far wiser, as long as you're getting new living room accent tables anyway, to make sure they match.
