Keep in mind that these tables can be ordered to keep your individual tastes, which is good news for those who like something a little unique. Brighter colors can be used to liven up your living room or earthier tones can be used if you want something understated. It is all up to you when you buy furniture accent tables, as the manufacturers want to give you as many options as possible. In the end, this should be a durable piece of furniture that is part of your living room for the foreseeable future, so make sure that you make the right decision when you buy.
Shape is equally as important for accent tables because it has the power to drastically change the feel of a room. An accent table that is more square than rounded gives a very angular look to a room. It will look a bit strange with certain pieces of furniture that focus more on curves. An ultra-modern accent table that features zig zag lines will lend a completely different air to a room than an antique-looking gilded metal table. Just spend some time thinking about your space and consider what kind of statement you need the table to make.
There are also many, many different fun, whimsical and theme oriented tables available today. You can find them useful as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, or even just as an accent table to enhance that bare spot in the room. For those marine loving souls there are dolphin and lighthouse themes while for the wildlife enthusiast there are eagle, tiger, elephant, stallion, or wolf themes. To enjoy that peaceful and serene feeling a waterfall gives, there are fountains available that also serve as accent tables. You can enjoy the soothing sounds of nature right in your own home as water cascades down bonsai tree branches or a beautiful lit base. Inspirational themes such as angels and crosses are also out there just waiting to call that empty and bare spot, home. You will find various styles offered for tables like antique or antique look tables. Era specific accent tables such as Renaissance and Rococo are available along with the ever popular classic and modern tables. The choice is yours.
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.
When shopping for new living room accent tables, don't forget to consider these tables for other areas of the room. For example you can buy a second table that matches one of the ones that bookend your sofa and use it across the room. Because they have the same pattern and features, they will tie nicely together. Add a plant to it, use it to display family photos or let your iPad serve up an ever rotating slideshow from your recent family vacation. An accent table is perfect for this use. Since accent tables can vary in height, be sure you order one that will work for you. For example, a tall plant may work better on a slightly shorter accent table while you'll want photos to be up a bit higher.
Or you can tie architectural details together, such as getting different accent tables that have the same finial work or legs. You can also go with the same finish on the tables matching one cherry accent table with another, even though they have different patterns or styles. That said, you need to be careful that you pick two that have the same tonal value and coloration. A bright red cherry table matched with a darker one can look out of place, unless you plan to set them at different ends of a furniture grouping to so visitors can't see the difference. It's far wiser, as long as you're getting new living room accent tables anyway, to make sure they match.
