Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
Accent tables as end tables are really popular these days, largely because you can mix and match them, but also because they allow you to show off a bit of your personality, choosing pieces that not only fit the space well, but reflect your style and personal tastes.
Round tables are particularly adept at being a chameleon in the home. They can serve so many roles, flitting from one room to another over the years, going from a standalone table in the living room or end tables to serving as a nightstand in the bedroom.
That's one of the great things about accent tables, their versatility. But don't think for a moment that they need to be reserved for the living room alone. You can add these tables to virtually any room in the home. Thanks to their small size and flexibility, you can add a table in any room that needs a real standout piece to accent the existing décor.
Every room has one. That space in your home that just seems empty. Yet, many pieces of furniture are simply too large or bulky to fit the space available. So, you end up doing without, rather than putting in something that is too large or would end up looking out of place.
Part of the reason for this is the selection. But another is the versatility. Unlike other tables that should be used as sets (there are exceptions we'll go into in a moment), accent tables can be the lone wolf in a room. They can be totally different than every other table you have in there, and you can have more than one accent table that doesn't match.
