Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement. The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact, because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa, enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture, but not so far as to place your cup out of each.
When it comes to storage, there are some with shelves, drawers, or a combination of the two, so you can pack a variety of things away in this space.
Most end tables hold a lamp for reading. Check the height of your lamps and determine how high a tabletop you need. If you will be using your lamp only for general lighting, you've got more leeway with your choices.
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.
They will also know how to tell the difference between great fake antique end tables and the real things. This knowledge could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a fraudulent purchase.
Protect them From Scratches. End tables get more abuse than most other pieces of furniture in your home. They are always being banged around and beaten up by everyone who walks around your home. Think about all the times that someone has turned the corner beside your sofa a little too tight and ran right into the table? Between that and plates, purses and anything else they may be setting down on the end tables and picking up again, there are likely to be a lot of dings and scratches on your end tables if you don't protect them.
