One kind of furniture that is often appreciated in this manner is accent tables. Accent tables provide a bit of extra storage as well as an attractive filler for what used to be a very empty space in your home.
Because of their very nature, accent tables are made to capture the attention of visitors and guests. Compared to end tables and coffee tables, they can be quite ornate, such as lovely wood tables with exotic, complex patterns of wood veneers. The can also come in any shape imaginable, from square and rectangle to round, oval and even octangular.
If you're a collector, think about getting a glass-topped display table. The drawer opens below it so you can add your collection of artifacts from your travels or seashells from your trip to the beach. You can even make little memory boxes of your favorite things from your children.
Rectangular accent tables have many uses in the home. A common use is as an end table, bedside table or side table, but their use is limited only to the imagination. A rectangular accent table may include a magazine rack underneath, with reading material contained within an arm's length of a nearby chair. Drawers may be included, where reading glasses, keys, phone books and such can be left safely until their next use is required.
Of course, small accent tables make a perfect substitute for traditional end tables, especially in smaller homes where space is at a premium. Their smaller stature can even allow you to have two tables, one on each side of the sofa, where only one end table would have fit ordinarily.
Finally, there's teak. Teak is the cleanest, most artistic looking of all the outdoor accent tables. It weathers extremely well and only needs an occasional oiling with a good teak oil that you can pick up at any marine supply shop.
