Thankfully, there is still a great selection of round coffee tables online and online retailers in some cases, have them priced to move. In contrast to square end tables, round ones can give your room a much softer look, making it more friendly and inviting. This is due to the tricks our eyes like to play on us. For reasons beyond the scope of this article, our eye associates square, blocky items as being more formal, while round and oval are seen as more approachable and relaxed.
If you are looking at all those square ends tables and thinking that they don't match, and therefore won't look right all being spread around your living room and patio, you're right. They don't look right like they are now. This is why you are going to change their appearance.
End Tables: Though they've been separated from their coffee table siblings, end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together, while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room, such as when your child is sick, you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
The best way to do this is to offer protective surfaces for those things to touch. Many people use table runners to protect the top of the table. You also may want to put a larger lamp on the table to make people more cognizant that it's there as they walk by.
