Cecil. End Tables. May 13th , 2018.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
Perhaps no example is better than the use of small end tables. Love seats and sofas are big-ticket items and most people will want to take them to the new home. Unfortunately furniture scaled for a home may look a bit cramped in a smaller home or apartment. This is where small end tables can save the day. You can change the scale of your end tables while still keeping your favorite upholstered furnishings.
You can also choose to increase the scale by going with small end tables that are more solid. Instead of selecting an open design you may want to go with a cabinet design to give the appearance that they are substantial pieces. If you go with an open design with just a top and legs it can make your small end tables appear even smaller than they really are.
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 been to a friend`s home that is long on seating and short on table space in the living room or great room then you know how important coffee and end table sets are. These little beauties not only give you a place to set stuff like a table lamp and your remotes but they can also help set the style of your room and really give it personality. Too often coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually usually a coffee table first then the end tables you can also purchase them as a matched set.
