Another popular type of teak table is teak coffee tables. Since no living space is complete without the perfect coffee table, there is an assortment of coffee tables to choose from. Round and square teak coffee tables are great for smaller spaces while rectangular ones coincide with almost every sofa set. Some include bottoms which are ideal for storing a variety of items. Since most teak coffee tables fit perfectly with teak chairs, these tables are great for sharing a small meal or snack with friends. Teak coffee tables are also perfect for showcasing books and small sculptures.
Have you been thinking about adding some final touches to one room in your home? Often, it's best to choose something that's not only a decorative accent but also something that is useful and functional. This means one of the things you may be considering is a side table.
Choosing a table isn't easy, partly because tables have so many names, yet the name rarely matters, what's important is the way the table is used. End tables are often found in pairs, one at either end of a sofa, but exactly the same table, on its own, at the side of a chair, would most likely be called a side table, you might even find it in the bedroom, as a nightstand. Whatever you call the table, it has a purpose, usually to act as a stage or platform for something else, a lamp, a cup, a book or all three. And let me suggest one other important element of your decor; a plant or vase of flowers.
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.
When people think of side tables, they always seem to refer to end tables; which is not the case. Side tables are tables that can be placed anywhere in your home, such as bedroom, living room, office, and many more. The possibilities are endless when it comes to these beautiful pieces of furniture.
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.
