One thing's for sure. You don't want to overlook accent tables as an option for decorating your home. Their versatility, beauty and variety almost guarantee you'll find the perfect table for that space that always seemed just a little too empty.
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.
It is more than just a table, it must be finished in a decorative finish that is fascinating, made of multiple woods like maple and cherry. But, if you have just one wood like a cherry end table, it would not be considered an accent piece. A furniture manufacturer may design an interesting table that has a different type of styling that is not typical, or could be a combination of all these elements.
Also remember that tables meant to work as an accent feature many not always be entirely functional. This means that the purpose of the table may be to act as a space filler to draw the eye into something interesting rather than allowing your gaze to be swallowed inside an empty and boring room. This type of table can be used as an end table or even a table that goes right in the middle of the room. There are so many different things you can do with this type of table that you will not understand why you didn't think of it before.
When shopping for new living room accent tables, don't forget to consider these tables for other areas of the room. For example you can buy a second table that matches one of the ones that bookend your sofa and use it across the room. Because they have the same pattern and features, they will tie nicely together. Add a plant to it, use it to display family photos or let your iPad serve up an ever rotating slideshow from your recent family vacation. An accent table is perfect for this use. Since accent tables can vary in height, be sure you order one that will work for you. For example, a tall plant may work better on a slightly shorter accent table while you'll want photos to be up a bit higher.
Accent tables are really exactly what you think they are. In contrast to end tables and coffee tables which often match, this table can contrast with the décor, creating a space in the room that really stands out.
