When it comes to deciding where to put accent tables in your home, remember, accent tables are not only limited to the living room they can be used anywhere you need them in your home. Additionally, they are not limited to the inside they can be set in outside living areas. Thanks to the variety in size, shape and design of accent tables, you can purchase tables that will suit any environment you have in your home, and fit in, like they were meant for the space.
The use of an decorative accent table can come in many ways. Often end tables are placed next to a sofa, loveseat, sectional, or chair keeping in mind that the top of the table should never be higher than the arm height. For the best results, try to plan on the arm height being at its crown 1 inch taller than the table. Console accent tables make great conversation pieces behind a sofa or placed on a plain wall with two small lamps on top. Doing this kind of placement will help show off any decorative accessories or pictures that you might have on top of it.
Round accent tables also work well on their own. You can use them in your living room, great room or home office to provide additional space to display photos, knickknacks and keepsakes. They are also wonderful for plants, bringing a little of the outdoors into your home.
When furniture becomes ancient it's a good thing. It's called an antique and becomes an item of much more value and one that is wanted by the masses.
But accent tables can really jazz up the room, taking the place of end tables and defining the corners of your sofa, love seat or even a couple of oversized occasional chairs, where an end table is often used as a makeshift table between them.
Accent tables come in so many shapes, styles and finishes that it's really something of a catch-all term. In its most basic form, an accent table is a small table that can easily be placed next to a sofa or chair.
