Protect them From Scratches. End tables get more abuse than most other pieces of furniture 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.
The end table runners that were helping to avoid scratches are a good start. You should also have coasters very noticeable on both end tables so no one can claim they didn't see them.
Wooden or Metal Chest - Nautical styling is in and many furniture décor stores are offering a wide variety of beautiful chests in both wood and metal for home accents. But why not make them functional as well as an accent. A pair of tall chests at the ends of your sofa or between your furniture settings can create a great set of decorative end tables. You can also make end tables out of a series of stacked graduated chests.
One of the best places to find end tables is online. Rather than dragging yourself to every furniture store in town shop from the comfort of your home. You can relax in your living room and look at end tables that will just make that room pop. You'll find the largest selection and the most reasonable prices and with just a few clicks of the mouse your new end table will be on its way to your door.
Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such, they come in many different shapes and finishes, including drum tables, drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables, particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
When many people search for sturdy and beautiful pieces of furniture, they don't look to modern day furniture. They instead look to the past and to old pieces like antique end tables.
