Cecil. End Tables. May 27th , 2018.
Designers talk a lot about scale. Now it is true that small end tables will upset the visual balance a bit winnowing under weight of a larger love seat or sofa. There are things you can do to fix this. One is to use slightly taller lamps that still have a small base. For instance you may want to forego a ceramic or pot style lamp and use one with a candlestick post. This will make the table look bigger than it really is and the added height of the lamps will help add visual weight as well.
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?.
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.
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.
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.
