Cecil. End Tables. May 20th , 2018.
One thing is certain. Nested tables that can be used as end tables offer homeowners a very flexible way to offer more bang for their buck in terms of table space without making the room look too crowded. End tables are often an afterthought in a living room or great room. Often so much time goes into making decisions about the upholstered pieces the coffee table the lamps and the paint that it becomes an "oh and we also need some end tables" type of decision.
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.
If you`ve ever gone furniture shopping and come home more confused than ever before don`t feel like you`re alone. Without even going into styles of furniture figuring out the difference between one table and another can be a nightmare. Take lowly end tables for instance. In the old days end tables came in pairs usually sold in a set with a matching coffee table. Easy enough. Put one end table on each end of the sofa plug in a lamp on each and center the coffee table in front. 1950s basic décor.
Dimensions of Occasional Tables. It is open to debate which is the more important: the look and feel of your occasional tables or their dimensions. Perhaps dimensions are irrelevant if you find a superb coffee table that matches your furniture perfectly. Maybe that superb-looking end table is ideal for your sofa or armchairs. Forget their sizes - they look great so let`s buy them! Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?.
If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional contemporary modern rustic etc. and then focus on the color of the wood or finish. Here`s a little tip in that regard. If you have wood accents on your upholstered pieces you want to pick the same type of wood stain or color for your coffee and end table sets. This will ensure that they look like a family of pieces rather than having something stick out like a sore thumb because it`s the wrong color.
