Selecting an end table is simply a matter of choice, and there are plenty of end tables and accent tables to choose from. The unique thing about choosing an end table, as opposed to other pieces of furniture, is the fact that it not only has to match the furniture you already have, but it also has to fit in the space you have. Unlike coffee tables, end tables must be squeezed in at the end of a couch or in between chairs. They provide an additional space for glasses, lamps, books, and anything else you might want to set there. An end table can be a magazine rack or just a small table for a lamp. It can be an accent feature in the room, or it can just be an elegant addition. It all depends on what you are looking for.
Finally, you can think out of the box, these days. One of the newest trends is redefining what an end table even is. For example, you can find a table that serves dual duty. There are models out on the market that are actually kennels for your pets. You can remove the front grate so that it doubles as a pet condo. For added comfort you can always add a small dog pillow inside. The table has plenty of slats around it so your dog can get air, even when it's being used as a kennel.
