Cecil. End Tables. May 16th , 2018.
Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement. The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture but not so far as to place your cup out of each.
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?.
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.
For example you can get coffee and end table sets that are long on storage as well as style. Many coffee tables come with storage space inside accessible either by doors or through a lift top table that cantilevers up and out from the coffee table itself. The same is true of end tables. Some have shelves others have a single drawer while still others have several drawers allowing you to keep things out of sight and out of mind when not in use. These are perfect for families or people who have pets. When company comes over just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets.
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.
