Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases, this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or 'coffee table' books. Whatever your purpose is, your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
Tray tables: If you're not planning to add a lamp to the end tables in your living room, you can opt for tray tables instead. These have easy to remove trays that you can use for serving food or beverages. The rest of the time, tray tables look just like end tables.
Sad, since these tables can really complete the look of the room and not only give you some much needed storage and stacking areas, but also add character. That's because they come in so many varieties, styles and sizes.
End tables create a visual interruption in the room to spice up the over all look. Imagine walking into a room and seeing nothing but a number of overstuffed floral print furniture pieces. With nothing to break up the endless cycle of flowers, the look would be overwhelming. But the simple addition of a pair of small, decorative end tables with a complimentary yet contrasting design will break up that floral pattern and make the overall look of the room less overwhelming and much more comforting and appealing.
Purchase Closeout and Clearance Pieces. Another great way to save money on these tables is to look for tables that are no longer going to be manufactured. Retailers always put these tables on sale to get rid of them quickly, and they especially want to be rid of the tables if they need to make room for new models. Of course you may want the latest style of table, but just remember that tables do not actually change a whole lot from year to year. When a manufacturer stops making a particular model, it does not necessarily mean that the replacement model will be much different than the original. This is especially true of tables that have a very classic look to them. Odds are the manufacturer is simply changing the table lineup a bit.
This is where nesting end tables come into the picture. When needed, nesting end tables can become 2,3, or more tables all wrapped up in one. On an average day, it looks like there is only one end table beside your sofa, that's because the other matching nesting end tables all tuck up underneath the first one. But when you need a little more surface space, you can pull those hidden nesting end tables out, spread them around the room, giving all your guests a place to put their glasses down while they put their hands up for the game.
