Another useful thing is that they work great as a complement to your current furniture, in addition to being fine on their own. This means that if you already have a table or dresser that you like, but you need a little more room, an attractive side table could be a good addition.
End and side tables enhance the ambiance of any room and even more so if they are made of durable, yet refined, teak. Placing these tables between furniture gives rooms a sense of connection. Teak end and side tables can be square or round, and are great for holding plants or flower vases.
Before choosing the right side table, let's look at the advantages of a side table in the first place. First, it offers you extra real estate when you entertain, allowing you to serve drinks, appetizers and even some vintage bottles of wine. Because side tables often have drawers, you even have a convenient place for a wine opener, some cocktail napkins and serving ware.
If space is at a premium, you may want to consider nesting tables or side tables where the top can be locked in an upright position so it sits flush against the wall. It can then be lowered and used while entertaining, but remain out of the way the rest of the time. Some side tables are also stackable, so you can create a multi-tiered shelf-like arrangement that can be used to display knickknacks most of the time but be pressed into service during a party or the holidays when every inch of table space is at a premium.
Another good thing to know is that they can be fun to decorate. While they are themselves a decoration of sorts, you can add anything to them for a wonderful result. Whether it is a collection of your favorite figurines or pictures of your family, a side table will look great with them.
When you consider putting one of these unique shaped tables in your home, you're going to achieve two things. First, you are of course going to get a side table that can be useful in your home. But also, you're going to add to the decorative styling of your home. Again, remember, these unique shapes in tables are in right now so by bringing one into your home you're showing you are on top of the furniture fashion trends.
