Accent tables come in so many shapes, styles and finishes that it's really something of a catch-all term. In its most basic form, an accent table is a small table that can easily be placed next to a sofa or chair.
Every home has it: that blank spot where nothing seems to fit. Too small for a furniture-seating piece, and too large for a plant, there must be something that would be just perfect! The answer is accent tables. One is ideal for any room in the house, and for any spot in any room.
Fortunately, there are literally thousands of choices, from basic pedestal tables to drum tables and scatter tables. They come in oval, square, octagonal, round - and in numerous styles ranging from oriental to Early American. There's something for everyone.
For example, an accent table can work wonderfully in an entryway, where you could use a place to keep your telephone books, your keys, gloves and other essentials that help you get on your way or find your way on a daily basis. They would look great with a small mirror above them, just so you can make sure you're all put together before you head out for the day.
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.
The secret to a lively living room is the addition of an accent table. You may ask, what is an accent table and what makes it that important to a home's decor?
