Speaking of the outdoors, don't think for a moment that round accent tables are for indoor use only. While you don't want to use an indoor table outside, manufacturers have created outdoor versions of the accent table, so you can enjoy the same style of furnishings inside and out.
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.
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.
Some have even have more tricks up their sleeves, such as handsome oak magazine cabinets that have a built-in magazine rack (also perfect for holding a laptop by the way) and a small slide-out table that pulls out from the front so that you can have a cup of tea and still have room for a lamp the table's top.
Finally, there's teak. Teak is the cleanest, most artistic looking of all the outdoor accent tables. It weathers extremely well and only needs an occasional oiling with a good teak oil that you can pick up at any marine supply shop.
You can also add a small table to your bathroom, placing guest towels on it instead of a towel rack. Add an antique washbasin and a pitcher filled with fresh flowers or potpourri to give the bathroom a fresh and fragrant look.
