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.
The good news is that you can use whatever you like in your rooms these days. There's no need to be locked in the 1950s with the traditional end tables and coffee table set. Use your imagination and find ones that look wonderful in your home, no matter what others call them.
So you just found the perfect chairs for your living room, but you need something to make them feel a part of the room? Well why not try an end table between them. I mean if you are sitting there you'll want to set your drink somewhere right?
If you're looking for additional surface area in your home, or if you want to accentuate your lighting or add to your décor, an end table is what you need.
Still, there are a lot of different sizes for end tables so you want to make sure that when choosing the perfect end table you get one that is correctly portioned. For instance, if you are placing the table at the end of a sofa, you want the table to be nearly as deep as the sofa or three quarters of its depth. The same is true if you place an end table next to a chair or between a set of chairs. In this case it can be a bit smaller in stature, but the actual size can be influenced by its style. A blocky table can be smaller than a more delicate, leggy table, for instance.
The most common multi-functional pieces in the living room are end tables. There are so many varieties of end tables it is no surprise.
