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?
With a little imagination, accent tables can add visual splendor to any space you have in your home, indoors and out.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
Style Tips. The real trick to choosing a table that stands out and compliments your other furniture is to find one that matches while still offering a unique perspective on the room. Avoid mixing styles of furniture, but find other things to mix up, like colors of wood. In some cases, you may have the most amazing piece of art that needs a simple table to show it off. In this case, a plain table that blends into the furniture may be the only exception to the rule. This will allow the artwork to shine.
You can think of accent tables as the exclamation point on your interior spaces. They can be found in an almost endless array of shapes, sizes and styles, making accent tables for any décor easy to add and beautiful to behold.
While you could conceivably get just one table and let it serve these different roles over the years, you'll find round accent tables hard to resist. By their very nature, they are spectacular pieces, meant to be the centerpiece of any space it is placed in. And while it can be the focal point, round tables are just as happy playing a supporting role.
