Choosing coffee tables and end tables is not a priority with most people when they begin to furnish their homes, and even more mature homeowners often look upon these as extras requiring little thought. Whether you are furnishing your first home or are considering renewing the aged and wilting furniture you have been using for more years than you can bear to consider, here are some suggestions that might help you.
While styles and tastes have changed over the years, nesting tables have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. As manufacturers have developed new takes on this classic, new nesting end tables are finding their way back on the market in large numbers.
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.
End Tables: Though they've been separated from their coffee table siblings, end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
While it's easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic, straight edged designs, this simply isn't the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before, from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron.
The easy way to take care of this is to use a soft cloth to periodically dust and clean the table surface.
