With so many choices out there, it's probably harder to narrow down your choices than it is to find new living room accent tables that you like and think will work in your home.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
That said, you can add a very different looking table to a foyer or entryway to create a welcoming environment. This can be used to hold a nice lamp, a candy dish or even a guestbook to give your home the ambience of a comfortable inn.
In contrast to end tables, accent tables don't come in pairs and are more ornate and embellished than your average end table. This allows you to add a little flair and flourish to your room by adding an accent table here or there that is in contrast to the other furnishings. An accent, if you will, to your other décor.
While a coffee table can be a real treasured addition to your living room, end tables can be a bit of a bore. Often they are simply refashioned versions of the coffee table, which lose something in the translation.
That's one of the reasons why you'll find accent tables such a delightful addition to your home: their ability to serve so many roles.
