End and side tables enhance the ambiance of any room and even more so if they are made of durable, yet refined, teak. Placing these tables between furniture gives rooms a sense of connection. Teak end and side tables can be square or round, and are great for holding plants or flower vases.
Before you set out for the local furniture store you may want to do some comparison shopping. An easy way to do this is to go online and research the items a little. This can help you in making your final decision by letting you read some customer reviews about not only the product but also the manufacturer. You can also get a better idea of how much you are going to be willing to spend.
No matter what your style, taste, or perfect table is I have a favorite site that I use to purchase all my furniture from. This site offers beautiful furniture and low pricing. Good luck on your hunt for the perfect table!
You should dust them off regularly. Dust that is left on the surface can be rubbed in and create scratches or damage to the finish. Try to dust your tables at least once a week.
Modern furniture puts an emphasis on glass, however real wood is generally far easier to care for. If you're looking for something with personality, a painted finish will give your living or family room an additional 'wow' factor and if you have modern decor it will help you avoid the 'metal and glass' look. A light colored, painted finish will give your room a fresh feel; there's no need to go for dark colors if you're looking for a traditional style; be fashionably 'shabby chic' by choosing pastel tables with a distressed finish. A light, chintzy or feminine sofa, potted plants and vases stuffed with cottage garden flowers will complete the look, but if you'd prefer something more exotic, try something with a patterned mosaic surface and the warmth of brass, or use a carved ornate trunk to add an air of mystery.
These types are also considered as very much ideal for people who appreciate the heritage and value of Mahogany side table. Such items can always be placed in a corner where they might not get scratched. There are also chances that you get a side table that is of new style but has been intentionally aged to offer it an antique looks. These are always one of the best choices for people who like antiques but do not have enough money to spend on them.
The height of a table is very important. End tables should usually be the height of the sofa's arm and will act as a frame for the larger piece. If your sofa is a modern design, you may find the arm isn't much higher than a coffee table. Add a lamp and if possible have them wired so you can switch them on and off from a wall switch. If rewiring isn't possible, add a simple remote control. Over head lighting destroys the atmosphere in a room.
