The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
Another benefit of using a reputable antique dealer for your antique end tables purchases is that you won't have to settle for just what is in the shop. If your dealer knows what you are looking for, they can add it to the list of things they are searching for when they bring in new inventory. You will essentially have your own personal shopper who is looking for the perfect antique end tables to be added to your home.
Outdoor patios can be livened by the use of end tables. Great for entertaining, patios or decks generally provide guest seating, and end tables offer handy space for placing cold drinks or snack items.
Nesting tables: If you entertain frequently, nesting tables make great end tables as well. The different sized tables tuck under one another when not in use and pull out as needed to add more table space when you have guests over.
Purchase Closeout and Clearance Pieces. Another great way to save money on these tables is to look for tables that are no longer going to be manufactured. Retailers always put these tables on sale to get rid of them quickly, and they especially want to be rid of the tables if they need to make room for new models. Of course you may want the latest style of table, but just remember that tables do not actually change a whole lot from year to year. When a manufacturer stops making a particular model, it does not necessarily mean that the replacement model will be much different than the original. This is especially true of tables that have a very classic look to them. Odds are the manufacturer is simply changing the table lineup a bit.
The most common multi-functional pieces in the living room are end tables. There are so many varieties of end tables it is no surprise.
