That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
When many people search for sturdy and beautiful pieces of furniture, they don't look to modern day furniture. They instead look to the past and to old pieces like antique end tables.
When choosing the perfect table for your room, you want to make sure that it has the right scale and the right style. For example, you don't want an end table that is too large or too small when placed next to your furnishings and you don't want to choose a modern end table for a traditionally furnished room.
Instead, take the road of strong tables that can pack away easily, nesting end tables. Not only are they sturdier, but can also be found in any style and to match any décor. That makes nesting end tables a nice addition to your home that you won't want to hide away after our guests leave.
Look around at your existing furniture. Is wood the main material, or do you favor glass and chrome? Maybe wrought iron is more your style. If wood dominates the room, your choice for end tables can be stained pine, oak or cherry, to name just a few. The color you choose should coordinate with the wood color of the current furnishings in your room, and be compatible with the pattern on your upholstered pieces and window treatments. If your decorating style tends to be eclectic, then a mixture of materials and looks might have great appeal to you. Glass tables not only look modern and chic, but also add depth to a room that is small in size.
Ornate Bar Stool - Not all seats are made for sitting. I'm sure you've seen them from time to time, ornate bar stools with wooden tops that, with all that detailing, look much more like small end tables than barstools. Well, why shouldn't they be? No one needs to know they were originally supposed to be barstools. As soon as you put them to work as end tables, that is what everyone will think they are. If you have a little do-it-yourself know-how you may even be able to find a way to make those rungs on the barstools become shelves to make them all-purpose end tables.
