Are you a fan of antiques or does your taste run more modern?
To narrow your search it might be helpful to decide one aspect you want your table to have like a wrought iron base, a marble top or a drum shape. Whether you want a wooden kangaroo table with a glass top or a bombe chest table full of curves and drawers you'll find the end table of your dreams sooner than you think. Get one for looks, get one for storage or get one for display. No matter what style of end table you are looking for you'll find it online. Heck you'll probably even find styles that you never thought of before.
A lack of space can be the enemy in home décor. If you have taken a walk around a furniture store you likely see mostly furnishings that fit well into a home that has a large floor plan, or even a moderate floor plan. But if you are living in a small condominium or apartment, there's no way those items are going to fit into your home.
While it's easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic, straight edged designs, this simply isn't the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before, from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron.
The lines between what is and what isn't an end table has blurred in recent years. In fact, accent tables will now do very good service as end tables, adding a little more character to the room.
We have tables in our house that do Big Work. The kitchen table is where we eat two or three meals a day, tackle homework, and pay bills. The dining room table isn't called into service as often, but when it is, it's big-Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners, and birthday and dinner parties. Even the coffee table, while it's smaller in stature, works sits front and center every day. It's the landing place for magazines and newspapers, laptops and DVDs, soda cans and pizza boxes.
