To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
Ornate Bar Stool - Not all seats are made for sitting. I'm sure you've seen them from time to time, ornate bar stools with wooden tops that, with all that detailing, look much more like small end tables than barstools. Well, why shouldn't they be? No one needs to know they were originally supposed to be barstools. As soon as you put them to work as end tables, that is what everyone will think they are. If you have a little do-it-yourself know-how you may even be able to find a way to make those rungs on the barstools become shelves to make them all-purpose end tables.
It's amazing how a little thing like the material used to make a piece of furniture can change its entire character. This is certainly true with upholstered furnishings. The difference between a fabric sofa and one made of fine leather is like night and day. It's not that one is inferior to the other. Rather, it creates a different look to a room, all because a certain material was chosen.
End tables create a visual interruption in the room to spice up the over all look. Imagine walking into a room and seeing nothing but a number of overstuffed floral print furniture pieces. With nothing to break up the endless cycle of flowers, the look would be overwhelming. But the simple addition of a pair of small, decorative end tables with a complimentary yet contrasting design will break up that floral pattern and make the overall look of the room less overwhelming and much more comforting and appealing.
Round tables are really in this year as a style, but while round coffee tables and round dining tables have taken center stage, it can be harder to find round end tables.
Finally, there's color to consider. When choosing the perfect table you want to consider the wood. If you're upholstered furniture has wood accents, you want the table woods to match. For example, stay with cherry or at least a dark wood if your sofa or chairs have cherry accents or match blond woods with blood woods. You don't have to use all the same shape of tables when choosing the perfect end table. But you do want to create a family feel. The style, color, finish and accents can tie them all together.
