One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you don't have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design, just different sizes.
Keep them Polished. Another thing that can damage your end tables is oil from your hands or from food products. These can seep into your table and change the color of the wood.
Protect them From Scratches. End tables get more abuse than most other pieces of furniture in your home. They are always being banged around and beaten up by everyone who walks around your home. Think about all the times that someone has turned the corner beside your sofa a little too tight and ran right into the table? Between that and plates, purses and anything else they may be setting down on the end tables and picking up again, there are likely to be a lot of dings and scratches on your end tables if you don't protect them.
Wooden or Metal Chest - Nautical styling is in and many furniture décor stores are offering a wide variety of beautiful chests in both wood and metal for home accents. But why not make them functional as well as an accent. A pair of tall chests at the ends of your sofa or between your furniture settings can create a great set of decorative end tables. You can also make end tables out of a series of stacked graduated chests.
If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish.
Once many people learn about the charm and past that can be connected to antique end tables, they want one of their own. This makes sense. Who wouldn't want a conversation piece in their home that is from plantation life during the Civil war, or out of a castle in Europe.
