The secret to a lively living room is the addition of an accent table. You may ask, what is an accent table and what makes it that important to a home's decor?
Square accent tables are also invaluable little tables in any room. Standing alone by a wall or next to a chair or bed, these furnishings often stand on four legs, which may also include one or two shelves underneath the table top. They may be used purely for decorative purposes, holding a vase of flowers or a piece of artwork.
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.
Well, if just could be small accent tables. Smaller than an end table, sofa table or console, these tables are one of the most important pieces of furniture you can have. Ask any designer and they will tell you that they are not only functional and practical, but versatile as well.
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.
Small accent tables work great in any room in the home, or even a hallway where a console table or bench may be too big. A lot of models even offer dresser-like qualities, being fronted with drawers for storing linens, holiday goodies or wrapping paper.
