Cecil. End Tables. May 13th , 2018.
Even though it`s easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult. To help you sort it all out here are some basics: End Tables: Though they`ve been separated from their coffee table siblings end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
That`s what nesting end tables are. They are perhaps the most flexible piece of furniture you could own since one moment they can serve as a lovely end table but when guests are over or the holidays roll around you have additional table space for appetizers drinks and the usual overflow of desserts. Nesting tables are a rather new concept in furnishings. The idea originated between 1930 and 1935. The original designs consisted of three to four small tables that could be stacked one upon the other. As time went on designers also figured out that they could also be stored one under another creating a piece of furniture that offered maximum space in a very small package.
Chairside Tables: End tables can be used as chairside tables of course. The only difference is the chairside table often has a smaller footprint and is sized to place next to a recliner or chair. Smaller end tables can do the same thing offering you flexibility in your room designs. Nesting tables: If you entertain frequently nesting tables make great end tables as well. The different sized tables tuck under one another when not in use and pull out as needed to add more table space when you have guests over.
However if you have a translucent top instead of a clear one you need to consider going with something a bit smaller in the same general neighborhood as a traditional wood end table. When selecting end tables of metal be sure you shop with a reputable seller who handles quality products. There may be a reason why you to such a good deal on a metal table. The metal welds may be inferior the fit may not be good between the different pieces and the materials themselves may not be high quality causing the finish to flake off within months of your purchase. As with any piece of furniture end tables are a major investment and you want to make sure that you are getting top quality for the budget you have available. You certainly don`t want to fall in love with a set of end tables that are the perfect fit for your room only to have them fall apart on you.
When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them say a strip of silver or brass along the front you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you`re trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You`ll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making going with a similar finish for your end tables.
