Maybe wrought iron is more your style. If wood dominates the room, your choice for end tables can be stained pine, oak or cherry, to name just a few. The color you choose should coordinate with the wood color of the current furnishings in your room, and be compatible with the pattern on your upholstered pieces and window treatments. If your decorating style tends to be eclectic, then a mixture of materials and looks might have great appeal to you. Glass tables not only look modern and chic, but also add depth to a room that is small in size.

Entry tables were designated to stand stately next to the home's main entry door, often under a mirror where one might check her appearance before retrieving her car keys from the drawer of the table and leaving the house. Regardless, all of them can play double duty in your home.

They are always being banged around and beaten up by everyone who walks around your home. Think about all the times that someone has turned the corner beside your sofa a little too tight and ran right into the table? Between that and plates, purses and anything else they may be setting down on the end tables and picking up again, there are likely to be a lot of dings and scratches on your end tables if you don't protect them.
