One of the great ways to find the perfect table is to go online and do a little virtual shopping. This not only saves time but with the price of gas these days, money too. You'll find a wide selection and you can mix and match to your heart's content, knowing that the table you chose will go perfectly in the space you have in mind.
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.
It is more than just a table, it must be finished in a decorative finish that is fascinating, made of multiple woods like maple and cherry. But, if you have just one wood like a cherry end table, it would not be considered an accent piece. A furniture manufacturer may design an interesting table that has a different type of styling that is not typical, or could be a combination of all these elements.
Don't have the budget to buy accent tables right now? You can make your own in a pinch. For example, you can stack a few leather suitcases on top of one another make an accent table. Another option is to put a glass tabletop over a large clay flowerpot. Or if you have an old wood or metal stool that needs some work on top just take a piece of cloth and cover the stool with it, turning it into an instant accent table.
Accent tables that have tilt tops allow you to place the table against a wall when it's not needed. When you're entertaining, you can simply pull the table over to where it's needed most and secure the latch to lock the table top down. A tilt top is a great space saver.
Not only can they add visual interest to an otherwise bland part of the room, but they can also provide you with additional storage. A lot of accent tables come with additional storage features, such as a small drawer or even several drawers, an extra bottom shelf, or even a spacious cabinet.
