Of course, small accent tables make a perfect substitute for traditional end tables, especially in smaller homes where space is at a premium. Their smaller stature can even allow you to have two tables, one on each side of the sofa, where only one end table would have fit ordinarily.
That's one of the reasons why you'll find accent tables such a delightful addition to your home: their ability to serve so many roles.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
When we think of something being ancient, we automatically think that's a bad thing. When we become 'ancient' we are older and having trouble doing things that at one time was not a challenge for us. But, it's a different story when we're talking about ancient furniture.
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.
Accent tables will fill the bill nicely. In contrast to other tables that may be larger overall, accent tables come in all sizes and shapes, from fairly small to quite large. This insures that you'll almost certainly find the table that is perfect for your home and the space you have in mind.
