Cecil. End Tables. May 26th , 2018.
If you do have small end tables that are open you may want to consider adding a contrasting linen or lace piece to the top and even have it extend over and down the sides some. This will give your table a bit more bulk without taking up added space. For really small homes you can eliminate one of the end tables entirely. While it`s nice to have end tables on both ends for convenience and balance there is no hard and fast rule requiring this. You may be able to make due with a single table and perhaps add a floor lamp on the other side to add light and even things out visually.
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.
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.
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?.
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.
