Chairside Tables: End tables can be used as chairside tables, of course. The only difference is the chairside table often has a smaller footprint and is sized to place next to a recliner or chair. Smaller end tables can do the same thing, offering you flexibility in your room designs.
Some of the newer designs really redefine the very concept of what a traditional end table is. Some models are double-tiered that look as if a smaller table was placed on a larger table. There are also models that have drop leafs so that they can fit in smaller areas or allow one side to be dropped so it can rest flush with a sofa, love seat or chair.
Living rooms are traditionally rooms where end tables are found. Ensconcing an overstuffed sofa on each end, end tables provide lighting possibilities as well as display surface. Handy drawers can keep the area clear of clutter by containing remotes, reading glasses, television viewing guides and more. Coordinating the tables with a coffee table brings a finished look to your décor.
Some people purchase their tables as part of a table set. This usually includes a matching coffee table. But you don't have to purchase them this way. Conceivably, each table can be different, if they have the same general design elements, the same palette of color or stain, the same architectural lines, etc. If you have two end tables in the room, you do want these to match, but they can contrast with the coffee table.
These are often not thought of as the super heroes of furniture, but they often can be, changing shapes to suit the need of any living space as well as offering the extra, much needed, storage space that lets you feel as if your living room is larger than it really is.
You think end tables are called end tables because they are the last piece of furniture that you put in a room, but they don't have to be. If you find a great end table somewhere that could be your starting point, your inspiration for the décor of your room.
