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.
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.
What materials do you need? In case you're looking for good quality, wooden part items are generally durable and strong, along with great design that could go in different variations. There are companies that create a refreshing stuff that never seem to grow old through the years. Materials like wine glass could blend with the table along with other diverse decorations. Always be conscious of tables manufactured from bad materials: even though they're cheaper, they sometimes don't go that far as far as functionality and durability are concerned.
One of the great things about outdoor accent tables is that they can be used a number of ways. Since they're so sturdy, they work well as an ottoman for other lawn furnishings or as extra seating when you have lots of guests over for a cookout.
That's one of the reasons why you'll find accent tables such a delightful addition to your home: their ability to serve so many roles.
The same is true in scale. You can have a dominant table and a smaller table, or even two that are the same size. But they shouldn't be too large or too small to fit in the space you have in mind. For example, there's nothing wrong with getting new living room accent tables that are different shapes - say one rectangle and one oval - and using them in place of end tables. But you don't want them to be too large or too small for the location, either overshadowing your sofa, loveseat or chair or simply willowing away because they're too small.
