Of course, small accent tables make a perfect substitute for traditional end tables, especially in smaller homes where space is at a premium. Their smaller stature can even allow you to have two tables, one on each side of the sofa, where only one end table would have fit ordinarily. Nesting tables continue to be another popular option for those who have some tight quarters but really need some extra tables for entertaining. Small in stature, these tables can stack one under another until needed, then be spread throughout the room, creating a functional yet synergistic look that allows you to entertain in style.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
While a coffee table can be a real treasured addition to your living room, end tables can be a bit of a bore. Often they are simply refashioned versions of the coffee table, which lose something in the translation.
Accent tables can also be bought as single units to create a diverting look; or in a set for an integrated appearance. There is an accent table to suit any kind of décor, taste and budget and its use is only limited by your imagination!
Accent tables that have tilt tops allow you to place the table against a wall when it's not needed. When you're entertaining, you can simply pull the table over to where it's needed most and secure the latch to lock the table top down. A tilt top is a great space saver. Of course, accent tables aren't limited to the inside of your home. The great outdoors can always use a place to put iced drinks and plates loaded with barbecue. Savvy designers have created lines of accent tables in the most popular woods for the outdoors - Northern White Cedar, Red Cedar and teak.
Corner triangle options are favorites among many people using accent tables. Formed specifically to fit into corners that generally stand empty, these little tables add interest by providing a stand for a cascading plant, or bring attention to the corner by displaying artwork, safely ensconced in the corner away from foot traffic. Often equipped with drawers and shelves, the corner triangle accent table can be extremely useful as well as decorative.
Accent tables for any décor will also work well in a guest room. For example, you can use a lovely accent table in lieu of a traditional nightstand, creating a different look that is still very functional. While you may forego drawers bedside, you can gain a nice table top with plenty of room for a lamp, book, reading glasses and other nighttime essentials. You can even add a crocheted or vintage lace doily on the top to add an extra homey touch. If you have enough room you can add another table on the other side of the bed, or perhaps place accent tables for any décor next to an overstuffed chair in the room so your guest has a place to get a little privacy. Add a floor lamp behind it and you have a quaint, comfortable getaway.
