O.K. Your room is all finished. Well, almost finished. Something still doesn't quite look right and even though you have all the major players in place - the sofa, love seat, a couple of occasional chairs and a coffee table - something still feels as if it is missing.
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.
The first thing you'll need to do is assess the bare area of the room and decide how you would like your accent table to function. In addition to the finishing touch it will add to the room, does it also need to be functional? An example of this would be an entry table used in a foyer, to accommodate a phone. It would be a great idea to also have a drawer to accommodate a phone book.
When you are out looking for a new set of tables for your home, consider the accent table and bring some life into an otherwise boring living room decor. Do not let just the interior Designers and their clients have all the fun. Use this decorating tip when considering when you want to give your home a little excitement.
For example, an accent table can work wonderfully in an entryway, where you could use a place to keep your telephone books, your keys, gloves and other essentials that help you get on your way or find your way on a daily basis. They would look great with a small mirror above them, just so you can make sure you're all put together before you head out for the day.
One of the great things about small accent tables is that though they are small, they aren't wallflowers. They can be very ornate and inviting, commanding a lot of attention, even with their small size.
