The first thing you'll need to do is assess the bare area of the room and decide how you would like your accent table to function. In addition to the finishing touch it will add to the room, does it also need to be functional? An example of this would be an entry table used in a foyer, to accommodate a phone. It would be a great idea to also have a drawer to accommodate a phone book.
Picking out the right accent table may be a lot easier than you think. There are so many different styles and designs to choose from today, it shouldn't be very difficult to find exactly what you need to fill that bare spot. Accent tables come in many different shapes and sizes. You can find small, tall, round or oval accent tables, cutout detail tables for the corner, pedestal tables for that elegant look, tables in black, white, scalloped or carved, and wooden tables with or without drawers or shelves. You will also find tables that can be used as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, console tables, entry tables, hall tables and cabinets that will do double duty as an accent table.
When selecting accent tables for any décor, you want to make sure that you choose wisely. While you can go crazy picking a style or theme, you still want to make sure it fits into the general overall look of the room. For example, if you have a living room of overstuffed pieces with rich wood accents, you don't want to add a white crackle finished accent table that would look more at home in a country or rustic styled room.
If you're a collector, think about getting a glass-topped display table. The drawer opens below it so you can add your collection of artifacts from your travels or seashells from your trip to the beach. You can even make little memory boxes of your favorite things from your children.
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.
One of the great things about outdoor accent tables is that they can be used a number of ways. Since they're so sturdy, they work well as an ottoman for other lawn furnishings or as extra seating when you have lots of guests over for a cookout.
