Space. The main draw to wooden side tables and end tables is how much space they save in living rooms and on patios. Dining tables, dinette tables and coffee tables are all useful if you require more space to enjoy a meal, get work done, put your feet up, etc. But often times we don't need so much space, just a spot to store a drink, or a TV remote. Large tables are the kiss of death for small areas and apartment style living. They make spaces look smaller, and you've probably bumped your shin more than once trying to get around it. Maximize your counter space with bar seating and consider doing away with the full-sized table all together. Wooden side tables will really open up a room.
Antique Mahogany side table is good if you like collecting them for their style and historical value. There are a number of modern sets that simply might not be offering you the style and charm of antique piece. Most modern pieces offer with a design that is sleek and matches very well with the home decor. You also have to keep in mind that a good antique can always be very much expensive and so most people purchase them as a type of investment.
A great idea might be for you take some pictures along with you of the existing décor in your room. This should help you in finding the perfect match to your style and personality. You want to get something that will accent your belongings not take control over them. Keeping with the same basic theme is the way to go.
We're talking about side tables. Side tables are put in a number of places in your home and are used for any and every job from holding books to lamps to drinks and anything else you decide to put on the surface. From day to day their job changes and what you expect of them changes, yet you don't give them any extra love than you do the other pieces of furniture in your home.
Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
Your choice of end of table will depend partly on the style of your room, but mostly on the style of your sofa. A modern sofa with straight lines, demands an angular end table, square or rectangular. Check the size carefully, sofa's can be more than 40 inches deep. A 15 by 18 end table could look far too small, whereas a pair of 36 by 36 end tables will take up 18 square feet, and that's not including the sofa between them! If you have room for a sofa table behind your couch, you may not need room on the end table for lamps or flowers, but if not, remember it's these decorative elements that give your home color and personality.
