End tables also come in a number of shapes, colors and varieties, so you can add a little bit of your character to your home while also adding a practical piece of furniture.
When it comes to furnishings in the living space, the number of people who are in the home at the time dictate what is really needed to make it a good space. If there are just a few of you, you only need one or two end tables and they will take care of holding drinks, a lamp, and maybe a few appetizers, so you can kick back and enjoy your favorite show. But what if you are entertaining? If you have a number of people over, and break into a game of charades, a pair of end tables aren't going to be enough to hold all the drinks and other things they want to put down. You don't want those guests trying to play charades holding drinks in their hands, do you?
A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low, and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
As you probably know, end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room, great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom, but not much else. With nested end tables, you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table, you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
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.
In addition, end-tables also come in a variety of designs and materials, from antique to modern, allowing you to match them to your existing furniture, thus giving your home an attractive finishing touch.
