If you are very much fond of antiques and if you are looking around for a good mahogany side table, then there are chances that you just might not be sure what may suit the decor of your home. You can always try searching a number of catalogs online looking for different styles of tables so you can make your best decision.
Here are five things you should know before buying this kind of tables.
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.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
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.
Another popular teak item is foldable teak tables which are extremely versatile and enjoyable. Foldable tables make it both easy and convenient to move the tables from room to room, or even outdoors. In addition, there are tables with foldable extensions, perfect for saving space. Choose from rounded and square shapes and tables with double or single extensions. Teak table trays are also extremely mobile and include a whole host of uses such as functioning as a card table or for a meal in front of the television.
