To prevent this you should not only keep your tables clean but also make sure to regularly polish them to keep any oils from seeping in.
Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables, for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion, or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?
To narrow your selection, start by the style, then the size. Many end tables come in different sizes. You also want to pay particularly attention to the height. There's no set standard height of an end table, but the general rule of thumb is that it should be within two inches of the furniture it is next to, so guests don't have to reach down to set a glass or dish while they visit.
Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
Perfect for holding your drink, providing space for a lamp, or to display your favorite knick knacks, the end table is a classic piece of furniture that should be included in any home.
Antique end tables and other pieces of old furniture are becoming more and more popular. Part of the reason may be that many people are starting to appreciate the antique market once again. Shows like Antique Road show have shown that even the simplest antique end tables have a story and a history that they are willing to take with them to a new home. These pieces have a unique life and personality all their own. It comes from where they came form and how they came to be a part of your home.
