Add accent tables to any room in your home, and you will find that you have added not only an attractive feature to the room but a useful one as well.
Color. Another important aspect of an accent table is color. Lighter woods can look amazing when mixed with darker woods in other pieces of furniture, and a white wood table can really make black wood furniture stand out. Remember that an accent table is all about drawing the eye and making a dramatic effect, so avoid tables that blend into your other furniture.
If space is at a premium but you still need table space for entertaining, consider purchasing nesting tables or stacking tables. These will store nicely out of the way (they're basically a table within a table within a table) until you need them for a dinner party or during the holidays, when there always seems to be more food than space. They're great for storing the holiday pies until dinner is through and it's time for dessert.
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.
There are also many, many different fun, whimsical and theme oriented tables available today. You can find them useful as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, or even just as an accent table to enhance that bare spot in the room. For those marine loving souls there are dolphin and lighthouse themes while for the wildlife enthusiast there are eagle, tiger, elephant, stallion, or wolf themes. To enjoy that peaceful and serene feeling a waterfall gives, there are fountains available that also serve as accent tables. You can enjoy the soothing sounds of nature right in your own home as water cascades down bonsai tree branches or a beautiful lit base. Inspirational themes such as angels and crosses are also out there just waiting to call that empty and bare spot, home. You will find various styles offered for tables like antique or antique look tables. Era specific accent tables such as Renaissance and Rococo are available along with the ever popular classic and modern tables. The choice is yours.
Picking out the right accent table may be a lot easier than you think. There are so many different styles and designs to choose from today, it shouldn't be very difficult to find exactly what you need to fill that bare spot. Accent tables come in many different shapes and sizes. You can find small, tall, round or oval accent tables, cutout detail tables for the corner, pedestal tables for that elegant look, tables in black, white, scalloped or carved, and wooden tables with or without drawers or shelves. You will also find tables that can be used as coffee tables, end tables, side tables, console tables, entry tables, hall tables and cabinets that will do double duty as an accent table.
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.
