When we think of something being ancient, we automatically think that's a bad thing. When we become 'ancient' we are older and having trouble doing things that at one time was not a challenge for us. But, it's a different story when we're talking about ancient furniture.
When it comes to the ideal contemporary table you are looking for, you have to keep in mind that your table depends upon a number of options:
When you're shopping for these tables you may want to start with online retailers. This is particularly true if you haven't really considered adding accent tables to your home before. By shopping online, you can get an idea of the tremendous selection out there without having to bother with driving from one furniture retailer to another in the hope that they may have a couple models in stock.
Rectangular accent tables have many uses in the home. A common use is as an end table, bedside table or side table, but their use is limited only to the imagination. A rectangular accent table may include a magazine rack underneath, with reading material contained within an arm's length of a nearby chair. Drawers may be included, where reading glasses, keys, phone books and such can be left safely until their next use is required.
If you are looking for accent tables with a little character and personality, you may want to look in the antique market. These accent tables have been around for a while, often passed down from generation to generation. You can spend a lot of time looking at the markings and age patterns and try to think about what these accent tables may have been doing in the past.
Since it's not always easy to tell what is and what isn't an accent table when shopping, it's a good idea to start your search online. In your favorite search engine enter "small accent tables" or "accent tables" and start looking through the results. This will help you see styles you like so you can narrow down your choices and do some comparison shopping. Keep in mind that the lowest price isn't necessarily the lowest price once you factor in taxes and shipping. Be sure that you factor all the costs in before you make your decision and go with a reputable retailer who will stand behind their product and make returns, if necessary, easy.
Shape is equally as important for accent tables because it has the power to drastically change the feel of a room. An accent table that is more square than rounded gives a very angular look to a room. It will look a bit strange with certain pieces of furniture that focus more on curves. An ultra-modern accent table that features zig zag lines will lend a completely different air to a room than an antique-looking gilded metal table. Just spend some time thinking about your space and consider what kind of statement you need the table to make.
