That said, you can add a very different looking table to a foyer or entryway to create a welcoming environment. This can be used to hold a nice lamp, a candy dish or even a guestbook to give your home the ambience of a comfortable inn.
Some have even have more tricks up their sleeves, such as handsome oak magazine cabinets that have a built-in magazine rack (also perfect for holding a laptop by the way) and a small slide-out table that pulls out from the front so that you can have a cup of tea and still have room for a lamp the table's top.
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.
Accent tables for any décor will also work well in a guest room. For example, you can use a lovely accent table in lieu of a traditional nightstand, creating a different look that is still very functional. While you may forego drawers bedside, you can gain a nice table top with plenty of room for a lamp, book, reading glasses and other nighttime essentials. You can even add a crocheted or vintage lace doily on the top to add an extra homey touch. If you have enough room you can add another table on the other side of the bed, or perhaps place accent tables for any décor next to an overstuffed chair in the room so your guest has a place to get a little privacy. Add a floor lamp behind it and you have a quaint, comfortable getaway.
There are also many, many different fun, whimsical and theme oriented tables available today. You can find them useful as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, or even just as an accent table to enhance that bare spot in the room. For those marine loving souls there are dolphin and lighthouse themes while for the wildlife enthusiast there are eagle, tiger, elephant, stallion, or wolf themes. To enjoy that peaceful and serene feeling a waterfall gives, there are fountains available that also serve as accent tables. You can enjoy the soothing sounds of nature right in your own home as water cascades down bonsai tree branches or a beautiful lit base. Inspirational themes such as angels and crosses are also out there just waiting to call that empty and bare spot, home. You will find various styles offered for tables like antique or antique look tables. Era specific accent tables such as Renaissance and Rococo are available along with the ever popular classic and modern tables. The choice is yours.
Nesting tables continue to be another popular option for those who have some tight quarters but really need some extra tables for entertaining. Small in stature, these tables can stack one under another until needed, then be spread throughout the room, creating a functional yet synergistic look that allows you to entertain in style.
