That said, choosing the perfect end table is still and adventure, given the fact that you can choose one that not only complements your existing pieces of furniture and overall décor, but your personal interests and pursuits as well.
A lack of space can be the enemy in home décor. If you have taken a walk around a furniture store you likely see mostly furnishings that fit well into a home that has a large floor plan, or even a moderate floor plan. But if you are living in a small condominium or apartment, there's no way those items are going to fit into your home.
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure, since there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from.
Next, you should look for antique dealers that have specific skills in purchasing antique end tables. Antique dealers who specify in tables, will know best what they are looking for in tables as they make purchases.
Some people would say they could just pull out a folding table and use that as a space to put the drinks. Think back to the last time you really saw at a folding table. It may have been as a child at the 'kiddie table' during a holiday meal, or at some poker game with your college buddies. Do you really want that flimsy table to be holding up everyone's drinks. Consider a bump of the table during the game. How many colors will your carpet turn when the drinks start splashing over? You don't really want to think of what it will take to get red wine out, do you?
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks, nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables.
