Accent tables are really exactly what you think they are. In contrast to end tables and coffee tables which often match, this table can contrast with the décor, creating a space in the room that really stands out.
Style and Shape. The two most important features of an accent table are the style and shape. Falling in love with a beautiful contemporary accent table does you no good if the rest of the furniture in your house is in a classical style. Just think about the style of the other furnishings in your home and try to find an accent table that falls in line with them.
This takes a bit of design know-how, however. You have to find a common thread that ties all the tables together so they look like they belong. That's not to say they have to match, only that they complement one another. For example, you can choose new living room tables that are all different sizes, but share the same basic veneer pattern on the top, such as a sunburst or compass.
What items do you want to put on the table? Side tables could provide a lot of space for different items: bulbs, textbooks, coffee servings and much more. Think of what you will be putting on the table to help you establish the size and style along with design. Moreover, think of whether you want to make use of it as a storage area within the lounge room: you could think about a modern accent table with functional storage capabilities and cabinets.
One of the great things about accent tables is their standout quality and variety of shapes. Perhaps that's why they have been a staple of homes for so long. You can mix and match them throughout the home and you'll never tire of their beauty and versatility.
If you're a collector, think about getting a glass-topped display table. The drawer opens below it so you can add your collection of artifacts from your travels or seashells from your trip to the beach. You can even make little memory boxes of your favorite things from your children.
