Accent tables come in so many shapes, styles and finishes that it's really something of a catch-all term. In its most basic form, an accent table is a small table that can easily be placed next to a sofa or chair.
For example, an accent table can work wonderfully in an entryway, where you could use a place to keep your telephone books, your keys, gloves and other essentials that help you get on your way or find your way on a daily basis. They would look great with a small mirror above them, just so you can make sure you're all put together before you head out for the day.
With so many choices out there, it's probably harder to narrow down your choices than it is to find new living room accent tables that you like and think will work in your home.
One of the great things about outdoor accent tables is that they can be used a number of ways. Since they're so sturdy, they work well as an ottoman for other lawn furnishings or as extra seating when you have lots of guests over for a cookout.
Fortunately, there are literally thousands of choices, from basic pedestal tables to drum tables and scatter tables. They come in oval, square, octagonal, round - and in numerous styles ranging from oriental to Early American. There's something for everyone.
When selecting accent tables for any décor, you want to make sure that you choose wisely. While you can go crazy picking a style or theme, you still want to make sure it fits into the general overall look of the room. For example, if you have a living room of overstuffed pieces with rich wood accents, you don't want to add a white crackle finished accent table that would look more at home in a country or rustic styled room.
