If you are like many families, there are square end tables in rooms throughout your house. Square end tables are some of the most common and popular of all end tables on the market. Now it's time to teach them how to do another job, other than sitting at the end of your sofa.
When it comes to furnishings in the living space, the number of people who are in the home at the time dictate what is really needed to make it a good space. If there are just a few of you, you only need one or two end tables and they will take care of holding drinks, a lamp, and maybe a few appetizers, so you can kick back and enjoy your favorite show. But what if you are entertaining? If you have a number of people over, and break into a game of charades, a pair of end tables aren't going to be enough to hold all the drinks and other things they want to put down. You don't want those guests trying to play charades holding drinks in their hands, do you?
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases, this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or 'coffee table' books. Whatever your purpose is, your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern?
Nesting tables: If you entertain frequently, nesting tables make great end tables as well. The different sized tables tuck under one another when not in use and pull out as needed to add more table space when you have guests over.
Antique end tables and other pieces of old furniture are becoming more and more popular. Part of the reason may be that many people are starting to appreciate the antique market once again. Shows like Antique Road show have shown that even the simplest antique end tables have a story and a history that they are willing to take with them to a new home. These pieces have a unique life and personality all their own. It comes from where they came form and how they came to be a part of your home.
