Tables also come in a variety of shapes, including the preferred triangular accent tables for any empty corners; square stand alone accent tables with storage spaces underneath, mainly used for decorative purposes; rectangular accent tables which can also be designed to hold reading material; or the ubiquitous round which is usually placed next to chairs or sofa ends and can be ornately designed.
You can also add a small table to your bathroom, placing guest towels on it instead of a towel rack. Add an antique washbasin and a pitcher filled with fresh flowers or potpourri to give the bathroom a fresh and fragrant look.
When selecting accent tables, you want to choose models that not only reflect your personal tastes and the decor of your room, but you also want to find tables that are of top quality. A lot of the models you'll find at discount stores aren't necessarily of the best quality. As they say, you get what you pay for. Many online retailers carry a wide selection of top quality tables from major manufacturers. One of the benefits of shopping online is selection and ease. Since you can shop by keyword, you can quickly narrow your selections, saving you time and money, since you don't have to use up a lot of gas going from store to store. And since many online stores offer free shipping, you don't have to worry about additional shipping costs, and added bonus.
Or you can tie architectural details together, such as getting different accent tables that have the same finial work or legs. You can also go with the same finish on the tables matching one cherry accent table with another, even though they have different patterns or styles. That said, you need to be careful that you pick two that have the same tonal value and coloration. A bright red cherry table matched with a darker one can look out of place, unless you plan to set them at different ends of a furniture grouping to so visitors can't see the difference. It's far wiser, as long as you're getting new living room accent tables anyway, to make sure they match.
Shopping for the Perfect Table. Just remember that finding the perfect table is always a matter of perspective. It may take some work to find the perfect piece to fill the void in your space. Some shoppers find it helpful to carry a picture of the space around with them as they try to find the perfect accent piece. Just remember to measure the space that is available to you before you go shopping. This will ensure that you don't fall in love with a piece that is simply too big or too small for the type of effect you want to make.
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.
