Even though it's easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before, knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult.
Selecting an end table is simply a matter of choice, and there are plenty of end tables and accent tables to choose from. The unique thing about choosing an end table, as opposed to other pieces of furniture, is the fact that it not only has to match the furniture you already have, but it also has to fit in the space you have. Unlike coffee tables, end tables must be squeezed in at the end of a couch or in between chairs. They provide an additional space for glasses, lamps, books, and anything else you might want to set there. An end table can be a magazine rack or just a small table for a lamp. It can be an accent feature in the room, or it can just be an elegant addition. It all depends on what you are looking for.
So whether your room needs a little romance or a little sparkle you'll find it in an end table. Try a larger or striking one between a pair of chairs or a pair of matching tables to flank a sofa. Choose from twisted wood legs, glass or marble tops and leather inlays to find the table that is right for you.
Space. One of the first things every shopper should do before looking for an end table is measure the amount of space available. This is especially true in cases where you have a couch up against a wall in a space that fits rather tightly. There is no point in seriously considering any end table if it does not fit in the space you have, so be sure to measure carefully before you go shopping.
As far as the coffee and end table sets themselves, you need to pay particular attention to the size of the pieces. These sets come in all sizes and shapes and you want to make sure that the ones you fall in love with don't overwhelm the room or look Lilliputian next to your mammoth sectional.
One of the great uses of end tables is to define a space in your home. End tables help the eye tell when one grouping of furniture stops and where another furniture grouping begins. For instance, end tables between a love seat and a sofa tie the two pieces together. But as soon as you put end tables at the end of the sofa, they will define the end of the group seating area and mark the beginning of a single seating area where a few chairs may be.
