Every home has it: that blank spot where nothing seems to fit. Too small for a furniture-seating piece, and too large for a plant, there must be something that would be just perfect! The answer is accent tables. One is ideal for any room in the house, and for any spot in any room.
The use of an decorative accent table can come in many ways. Often end tables are placed next to a sofa, loveseat, sectional, or chair keeping in mind that the top of the table should never be higher than the arm height. For the best results, try to plan on the arm height being at its crown 1 inch taller than the table. Console accent tables make great conversation pieces behind a sofa or placed on a plain wall with two small lamps on top. Doing this kind of placement will help show off any decorative accessories or pictures that you might have on top of it.
Part of the reason for this is the selection. But another is the versatility. Unlike other tables that should be used as sets (there are exceptions we'll go into in a moment), accent tables can be the lone wolf in a room. They can be totally different than every other table you have in there, and you can have more than one accent table that doesn't match.
Accent tables for any décor come in many styles. You can get tables that have intricate inlays or have ornate carvings and embellishments. They can have drawers where you can put some of your collectibles so they show through the glass top or they can reflect your individual tastes and interests, such as have a wine or nautical theme. Or they can add a bit of exotic flair to the room, harkening back to the days of the British West Indies or old Bombay. There are accent tables for any décor imaginable, from very formal pieces to modern tables that are minimalist in form but big on function.
The secret to a lively living room is the addition of an accent table. You may ask, what is an accent table and what makes it that important to a home's decor?
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.
