Shape is equally as important for accent tables because it has the power to drastically change the feel of a room. An accent table that is more square than rounded gives a very angular look to a room. It will look a bit strange with certain pieces of furniture that focus more on curves. An ultra-modern accent table that features zig zag lines will lend a completely different air to a room than an antique-looking gilded metal table. Just spend some time thinking about your space and consider what kind of statement you need the table to make.
Style Tips. The real trick to choosing a table that stands out and compliments your other furniture is to find one that matches while still offering a unique perspective on the room. Avoid mixing styles of furniture, but find other things to mix up, like colors of wood. In some cases, you may have the most amazing piece of art that needs a simple table to show it off. In this case, a plain table that blends into the furniture may be the only exception to the rule. This will allow the artwork to shine.
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.
One kind of furniture that is often appreciated in this manner is accent tables. Accent tables provide a bit of extra storage as well as an attractive filler for what used to be a very empty space in your home.
When selecting the perfect round accent tables for your home, you'll not only want to think about the style, but the size as well. There's no standard size in the accent table world, so you have the added advantage of being able to select tables that fit your unique space requirements. For example, you could select small round accent tables to serve as end tables in your living room and use slightly larger ones for a nightstand in your bedroom.
Fortunately, there are literally thousands of choices, from basic pedestal tables to drum tables and scatter tables. They come in oval, square, octagonal, round - and in numerous styles ranging from oriental to Early American. There's something for everyone.
