Fortunately, there are literally thousands of choices, from basic pedestal tables to drum tables and scatter tables. They come in oval, square, octagonal, round - and in numerous styles ranging from oriental to Early American. There's something for everyone.
When you're shopping for these tables you may want to start with online retailers. This is particularly true if you haven't really considered adding accent tables to your home before. By shopping online, you can get an idea of the tremendous selection out there without having to bother with driving from one furniture retailer to another in the hope that they may have a couple models in stock.
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.
With so many choices out there, it's probably harder to narrow down your choices than it is to find new living room accent tables that you like and think will work in your home.
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.
What items do you want to put on the table? Side tables could provide a lot of space for different items: bulbs, textbooks, coffee servings and much more. Think of what you will be putting on the table to help you establish the size and style along with design. Moreover, think of whether you want to make use of it as a storage area within the lounge room: you could think about a modern accent table with functional storage capabilities and cabinets.
Most people have a number of different items in their living rooms, as this is usually where sofas, chairs, couches, televisions, and other commonly used pieces of furniture are kept. When you select the furniture accent tables that you want, you should be sure to compare it with the items that you already have in your home, just to be sure that everything matches up. The table that you choose will end up being a part of your living room for a long time to come, so make sure that you are sure about your selection before making your final decision.
