Shape is equally as important for accent tables because it has the power to drastically change the feel of a room. An accent table that is more square than rounded gives a very angular look to a room. It will look a bit strange with certain pieces of furniture that focus more on curves. An ultra-modern accent table that features zig zag lines will lend a completely different air to a room than an antique-looking gilded metal table. Just spend some time thinking about your space and consider what kind of statement you need the table to make.
Small accent tables work great in any room in the home, or even a hallway where a console table or bench may be too big. A lot of models even offer dresser-like qualities, being fronted with drawers for storing linens, holiday goodies or wrapping paper.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
Accent tables look very different than traditional end tables. They can be highly decorative, making them terrific for anchoring the upholstered furnishings in the room. What's more, accent tables come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so you can select a table that is perfect for the space you have available.
Many accent tables come in designs that capture your interests and passions. For instance, you can get accent tables with a travel theme, with a large compass design on the top done in exquisite veneers. Or you can find one that has a built-in wine rack on the bottom, allowing you to share your love of wine with visitors and guests.
Shopping online allows you to quickly use built-in search engine features to narrow your search by size, shape, style, color, etc. This is a real timesaver. As you search, you may want to drag your favorites into a folder so you can print them out or view them on your computer later. Just be sure you remember where you saw each model at, or you may never be able to retrace your steps and find your favorite again so you can order it.
