That said, you can add a very different looking table to a foyer or entryway to create a welcoming environment. This can be used to hold a nice lamp, a candy dish or even a guestbook to give your home the ambience of a comfortable inn.
That's because they come in so many styles, themes and colors. You can get round accent tables that have just a touch of the Orient or ones that look as if they were picked up at an estate sale in England, rich in exotic and complex wood veneer designs.
Round tables are particularly adept at being a chameleon in the home. They can serve so many roles, flitting from one room to another over the years, going from a standalone table in the living room or end tables to serving as a nightstand in the bedroom.
For a more rustic look in the yard, nothing beats those made of Northern White Cedar. Over time, the table will weather beautifully, taking on a silvery appearance. Red cedar offers a cleaner, less rustic look. It too will age nicely and the red cedar can take whatever winter throws at it since it is impervious to the elements as well as bugs.
Accent tables for any décor come in many styles. You can get tables that have intricate inlays or have ornate carvings and embellishments. They can have drawers where you can put some of your collectibles so they show through the glass top or they can reflect your individual tastes and interests, such as have a wine or nautical theme. Or they can add a bit of exotic flair to the room, harkening back to the days of the British West Indies or old Bombay. There are accent tables for any décor imaginable, from very formal pieces to modern tables that are minimalist in form but big on function.
Tables also come in a variety of shapes, including the preferred triangular accent tables for any empty corners; square stand alone accent tables with storage spaces underneath, mainly used for decorative purposes; rectangular accent tables which can also be designed to hold reading material; or the ubiquitous round which is usually placed next to chairs or sofa ends and can be ornately designed.
