To help you sort it all out, here are some basics:
Measure, Measure, Measure. Finally, make sure that you measure the space you have available to you before shopping. If the end tables do not fit in the space you have, then they are not a savings. You would be surprised how many people go shopping for tables and then forget to measure their space. End tables are often squeezed into the smallest space available in a living room or family room, so it is far too easy to purchase a table that is larger than the available space.
Nesting tables are a rather new concept in furnishings. The idea originated between 1930 and 1935. The original designs consisted of three to four small tables that could be stacked one upon the other. As time went on, designers also figured out that they could also be stored one under another, creating a piece of furniture that offered maximum space in a very small package.
Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
Bring all the square end tables you can find out into the common area of your home. These are going to be your new drink and appetizer tables.
That said, your biggest decision is probably what kind of table you want in the first place. For instance, some homeowners prefer the end tables on the small side, large enough to hold a lamp and perhaps a glass or small plate, but not much more. Others want their tables to be as large as possible, so they have maximum real estate when there's a party of holiday gathering.
