Cecil. End Tables. May 28th , 2018.
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.
Tray tables: If you`re not planning to add a lamp to the end tables in your living room you can opt for tray tables instead. These have easy to remove trays that you can use for serving food or beverages. The rest of the time tray tables look just like end tables. The good news is that you can use whatever you like in your rooms these days. There`s no need to be locked in the 1950s with the traditional end tables and coffee table set. Use your imagination and find ones that look wonderful in your home no matter what others call them.
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?.
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.
