The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
Dining tables and coffee tables most certainly have their place in the world. When you're sitting down to a meal, when your child is doing homework, wooden side tables won't do. They're too small. But it's their small size that makes them such lifesavers for other things when you don't have room for something bigger. Ideally, you should use wooden side tables in conjunction with your other indoor or patio furniture as an accompaniment, or wingman, say, to your regular table.
Socializing. Finally, wooden side tables are perfect in a pinch when you need some extra table space, or for outdoor gatherings. Pair these end tables with some Adirondack chairs and you won't even need a large patio table clogging up your deck space. It's like taking a full sized table and breaking it into smaller pieces that can be placed at each guest's side. This way, it's more convenient for people not having to walk over to set down their plate if they're not seated directly at the table, while providing a private little area upon which they can keep their things.
The first is that you should understand the size limitations of these tables. If you just need a little bit of table space or storage underneath then they work fine, but you should not underestimate your needs. Don't get a table just because it looks good when you really need the space of something larger.
Another popular type of teak table is teak coffee tables. Since no living space is complete without the perfect coffee table, there is an assortment of coffee tables to choose from. Round and square teak coffee tables are great for smaller spaces while rectangular ones coincide with almost every sofa set. Some include bottoms which are ideal for storing a variety of items. Since most teak coffee tables fit perfectly with teak chairs, these tables are great for sharing a small meal or snack with friends. Teak coffee tables are also perfect for showcasing books and small sculptures.
