One of the great ways to find the perfect table is to go online and do a little virtual shopping. This not only saves time but with the price of gas these days, money too. You'll find a wide selection and you can mix and match to your heart's content, knowing that the table you chose will go perfectly in the space you have in mind.
Part of the reason for this is the selection. But another is the versatility. Unlike other tables that should be used as sets (there are exceptions we'll go into in a moment), accent tables can be the lone wolf in a room. They can be totally different than every other table you have in there, and you can have more than one accent table that doesn't match.
Accent tables come in so many shapes, styles and finishes that it's really something of a catch-all term. In its most basic form, an accent table is a small table that can easily be placed next to a sofa or chair.
Or you can tie architectural details together, such as getting different accent tables that have the same finial work or legs. You can also go with the same finish on the tables matching one cherry accent table with another, even though they have different patterns or styles. That said, you need to be careful that you pick two that have the same tonal value and coloration. A bright red cherry table matched with a darker one can look out of place, unless you plan to set them at different ends of a furniture grouping to so visitors can't see the difference. It's far wiser, as long as you're getting new living room accent tables anyway, to make sure they match.
With so many choices out there, it's probably harder to narrow down your choices than it is to find new living room accent tables that you like and think will work in your home.
Shopping online allows you to quickly use built-in search engine features to narrow your search by size, shape, style, color, etc. This is a real timesaver. As you search, you may want to drag your favorites into a folder so you can print them out or view them on your computer later. Just be sure you remember where you saw each model at, or you may never be able to retrace your steps and find your favorite again so you can order it.
