If you're looking for a stunning set of end tables, you really can't go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction, they can come in an endless array of finishes, design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements, which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
Also keep in mind the color scheme of your existing furniture, as well as the materials they are crafted from, such as wood, steel or glass, and pick and end table of similar material. In addition, before you purchase your end table, take into consideration both functionality and design to find a solution that's perfect for you.
Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables, for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion, or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?
Dining rooms are also great places for end tables. Use one or a pair to accent and dress up a dining room to display lovely vases of fresh or dried flowers.
Shape is another consideration. When choosing the perfect end table many people prefer to go with a square or rectangle shape but a round or oval shape can go nicely at the end of a sofa or between two chairs as well. A round or oval table can also make the room look less blocky, giving it more character and definition.
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.
