If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish.
Today, end tables have made a comeback. No longer sold automatically in pairs with a coffee table, they have struck out on their own, joined by accent tables, occasional tables, drum tables, side tables... the list goes on and on and on.
When it comes to storage, there are some with shelves, drawers, or a combination of the two, so you can pack a variety of things away in this space.
When thinking about shape, you also want to consider the style. For beginners, you're always safe going with a table that has straight legs and lines if the furniture around it also has straight lines. The same is true with a curved, leggy piece. It will tend to look better with more ornate furnishings.
Even though it's easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult.
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.
