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.
Since it's not always easy to tell what is and what isn't an accent table when shopping, it's a good idea to start your search online. In your favorite search engine enter "small accent tables" or "accent tables" and start looking through the results. This will help you see styles you like so you can narrow down your choices and do some comparison shopping. Keep in mind that the lowest price isn't necessarily the lowest price once you factor in taxes and shipping. Be sure that you factor all the costs in before you make your decision and go with a reputable retailer who will stand behind their product and make returns, if necessary, easy.
The same is true in scale. You can have a dominant table and a smaller table, or even two that are the same size. But they shouldn't be too large or too small to fit in the space you have in mind. For example, there's nothing wrong with getting new living room accent tables that are different shapes - say one rectangle and one oval - and using them in place of end tables. But you don't want them to be too large or too small for the location, either overshadowing your sofa, loveseat or chair or simply willowing away because they're too small.
Corner triangle options are favorites among many people using accent tables. Formed specifically to fit into corners that generally stand empty, these little tables add interest by providing a stand for a cascading plant, or bring attention to the corner by displaying artwork, safely ensconced in the corner away from foot traffic. Often equipped with drawers and shelves, the corner triangle accent table can be extremely useful as well as decorative.
Are you tired of the boring home that you live in? Many of today's home owners are not inspired by their home and it has just became a place to eat, sleep and raise their families. It does not have to be that way. You can have a designer looking home with the help of a trick that most decorators know and use with their clients.
But accent tables can really jazz up the room, taking the place of end tables and defining the corners of your sofa, love seat or even a couple of oversized occasional chairs, where an end table is often used as a makeshift table between them.
