If you've ever gone furniture shopping and come home more confused than ever before, don't feel like you're alone. Without even going into styles of furniture, figuring out the difference between one table and another can be a nightmare. Take lowly end tables, for instance. In the old days, end tables came in pairs, usually sold in a set with a matching coffee table. Easy enough. Put one end table on each end of the sofa, plug in a lamp on each and center the coffee table in front. 1950s basic décor.
Purchase Closeout and Clearance Pieces. Another great way to save money on these tables is to look for tables that are no longer going to be manufactured. Retailers always put these tables on sale to get rid of them quickly, and they especially want to be rid of the tables if they need to make room for new models. Of course you may want the latest style of table, but just remember that tables do not actually change a whole lot from year to year. When a manufacturer stops making a particular model, it does not necessarily mean that the replacement model will be much different than the original. This is especially true of tables that have a very classic look to them. Odds are the manufacturer is simply changing the table lineup a bit.
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.
Round tables are really in this year as a style, but while round coffee tables and round dining tables have taken center stage, it can be harder to find round end tables.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
Perfect for holding your drink, providing space for a lamp, or to display your favorite knick knacks, the end table is a classic piece of furniture that should be included in any home.
