However, if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one, you need to consider going with something a bit smaller, in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table.
So how to you narrow down your choices?
End tables create a visual interruption in the room to spice up the over all look. Imagine walking into a room and seeing nothing but a number of overstuffed floral print furniture pieces. With nothing to break up the endless cycle of flowers, the look would be overwhelming. But the simple addition of a pair of small, decorative end tables with a complimentary yet contrasting design will break up that floral pattern and make the overall look of the room less overwhelming and much more comforting and appealing.
Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such, they come in many different shapes and finishes, including drum tables, drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables, particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
Even though they can often be an afterthought, don't forget about end tables when you go to decorate or redecorate a room. They can be the beginning of your journey into interior design. They may be the only ornament a room needs to complement the existing décor and make the look complete.
