When you're shopping for these tables you may want to start with online retailers. This is particularly true if you haven't really considered adding accent tables to your home before. By shopping online, you can get an idea of the tremendous selection out there without having to bother with driving from one furniture retailer to another in the hope that they may have a couple models in stock.
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.
One of the great things about accent tables is their standout quality and variety of shapes. Perhaps that's why they have been a staple of homes for so long. You can mix and match them throughout the home and you'll never tire of their beauty and versatility.
This takes a bit of design know-how, however. You have to find a common thread that ties all the tables together so they look like they belong. That's not to say they have to match, only that they complement one another. For example, you can choose new living room tables that are all different sizes, but share the same basic veneer pattern on the top, such as a sunburst or compass.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
Also, make sure that you have room for these accent tables before making your purchase, as failure to do so could leave you without the required space to make it work. In fact, if you make the right selection, your table should save you space, as it will give you a spot in which to place things that would normally be sitting around the room. Furniture accent tables truly provide a number of benefits for you, making them a vital part of the redecorating process.
