While rectangular or square accent tables will certainly fill the bill as an end table as well, you can also use them on the sides of your bed. One of the great things bout these tables is that they can each be different. Whether you use them in the living room or in the bedroom, you can actually use two different tables, such as one that's rectangular and one that's round, but in the same general style and finish. It's O.K. if they are very decorative, they are meant to be.
Accent tables as end tables are really popular these days, largely because you can mix and match them, but also because they allow you to show off a bit of your personality, choosing pieces that not only fit the space well, but reflect your style and personal tastes.
When selecting accent tables, you want to choose models that not only reflect your personal tastes and the decor of your room, but you also want to find tables that are of top quality. A lot of the models you'll find at discount stores aren't necessarily of the best quality. As they say, you get what you pay for. Many online retailers carry a wide selection of top quality tables from major manufacturers. One of the benefits of shopping online is selection and ease. Since you can shop by keyword, you can quickly narrow your selections, saving you time and money, since you don't have to use up a lot of gas going from store to store. And since many online stores offer free shipping, you don't have to worry about additional shipping costs, and added bonus.
Accent tables can also be bought as single units to create a diverting look; or in a set for an integrated appearance. There is an accent table to suit any kind of décor, taste and budget and its use is only limited by your imagination!
Of course, accent tables aren't limited to the inside of your home. The great outdoors can always use a place to put iced drinks and plates loaded with barbecue. Savvy designers have created lines of accent tables in the most popular woods for the outdoors - Northern White Cedar, Red Cedar and teak.
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.
