Because of their very nature, accent tables are made to capture the attention of visitors and guests. Compared to end tables and coffee tables, they can be quite ornate, such as lovely wood tables with exotic, complex patterns of wood veneers. The can also come in any shape imaginable, from square and rectangle to round, oval and even octangular.
Since it's not always easy to tell what is and what isn't an accent table when shopping, it's a good idea to start your search online. In your favorite search engine enter "small accent tables" or "accent tables" and start looking through the results. This will help you see styles you like so you can narrow down your choices and do some comparison shopping. Keep in mind that the lowest price isn't necessarily the lowest price once you factor in taxes and shipping. Be sure that you factor all the costs in before you make your decision and go with a reputable retailer who will stand behind their product and make returns, if necessary, easy.
While a coffee table can be a real treasured addition to your living room, end tables can be a bit of a bore. Often they are simply refashioned versions of the coffee table, which lose something in the translation.
O.K. Your room is all finished. Well, almost finished. Something still doesn't quite look right and even though you have all the major players in place - the sofa, love seat, a couple of occasional chairs and a coffee table - something still feels as if it is missing.
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.
That's because they come in so many styles, themes and colors. You can get round accent tables that have just a touch of the Orient or ones that look as if they were picked up at an estate sale in England, rich in exotic and complex wood veneer designs.
