For instance, some end tables just don't scale well in a room, especially when you have a large sectional that dominates the landscape. Smaller accent tables can fill the bill perfectly, as you can get one that is thinner but no less useful.
While a coffee table can be a real treasured addition to your living room, end tables can be a bit of a bore. Often they are simply refashioned versions of the coffee table, which lose something in the translation.
Accent tables are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can add to a living room. New living room tables can add visual interest, solve some of your space utilization issues and show off your personality, all in at the same time.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
Also remember that tables meant to work as an accent feature many not always be entirely functional. This means that the purpose of the table may be to act as a space filler to draw the eye into something interesting rather than allowing your gaze to be swallowed inside an empty and boring room. This type of table can be used as an end table or even a table that goes right in the middle of the room. There are so many different things you can do with this type of table that you will not understand why you didn't think of it before.
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.
