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.
Round end tables even make a great alternate to traditional end tables, adding a lot of visual impact to the room, since square or rectangular end tables are usually the rule. Accent tables that are round or oval make a delightful exception to this rule. You can even make a bolder statement by going with a pedestal table instead of a traditional table with four legs.
One of the great things about small accent tables is that though they are small, they aren't wallflowers. They can be very ornate and inviting, commanding a lot of attention, even with their small size.
Finally, there's teak. Teak is the cleanest, most artistic looking of all the outdoor accent tables. It weathers extremely well and only needs an occasional oiling with a good teak oil that you can pick up at any marine supply shop.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
Don't have the budget to buy accent tables right now? You can make your own in a pinch. For example, you can stack a few leather suitcases on top of one another make an accent table. Another option is to put a glass tabletop over a large clay flowerpot. Or if you have an old wood or metal stool that needs some work on top just take a piece of cloth and cover the stool with it, turning it into an instant accent table.
