Accent tables look very different than traditional end tables. They can be highly decorative, making them terrific for anchoring the upholstered furnishings in the room. What's more, accent tables come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, so you can select a table that is perfect for the space you have available.
An Accent table is one of four different types of tables that have an interesting twist to each one of them. They are one of the fallowing: End table, Side Table, Coffee or cocktail table, or a Console table or Sofa Table.
Style and Shape. The two most important features of an accent table are the style and shape. Falling in love with a beautiful contemporary accent table does you no good if the rest of the furniture in your house is in a classical style. Just think about the style of the other furnishings in your home and try to find an accent table that falls in line with them.
Round end tables even make a great alternate to traditional end tables, adding a lot of visual impact to the room, since square or rectangular end tables are usually the rule. Accent tables that are round or oval make a delightful exception to this rule. You can even make a bolder statement by going with a pedestal table instead of a traditional table with four legs.
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.
With a little imagination, accent tables can add visual splendor to any space you have in your home, indoors and out.
