There are also many, many different fun, whimsical and theme oriented tables available today. You can find them useful as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, or even just as an accent table to enhance that bare spot in the room. For those marine loving souls there are dolphin and lighthouse themes while for the wildlife enthusiast there are eagle, tiger, elephant, stallion, or wolf themes. To enjoy that peaceful and serene feeling a waterfall gives, there are fountains available that also serve as accent tables. You can enjoy the soothing sounds of nature right in your own home as water cascades down bonsai tree branches or a beautiful lit base. Inspirational themes such as angels and crosses are also out there just waiting to call that empty and bare spot, home. You will find various styles offered for tables like antique or antique look tables. Era specific accent tables such as Renaissance and Rococo are available along with the ever popular classic and modern tables. The choice is yours.
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.
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.
The secret to a lively living room is the addition of an accent table. You may ask, what is an accent table and what makes it that important to a home's decor?
Accent tables for any décor come in many styles. You can get tables that have intricate inlays or have ornate carvings and embellishments. They can have drawers where you can put some of your collectibles so they show through the glass top or they can reflect your individual tastes and interests, such as have a wine or nautical theme. Or they can add a bit of exotic flair to the room, harkening back to the days of the British West Indies or old Bombay. There are accent tables for any décor imaginable, from very formal pieces to modern tables that are minimalist in form but big on function.
When we think of something being ancient, we automatically think that's a bad thing. When we become 'ancient' we are older and having trouble doing things that at one time was not a challenge for us. But, it's a different story when we're talking about ancient furniture.
