One of the great things about accent tables is their standout quality and variety of shapes. Perhaps that's why they have been a staple of homes for so long. You can mix and match them throughout the home and you'll never tire of their beauty and versatility.
If you have a guestroom with a hide-a-bed or a futon, you'll find that round tables make a nice nightstand there too. Best of all, it can be quickly repositioned to be used as a computer stand, game table or to eat dinner on. Most accent tables are fairly light, allowing them to be easily moved around the home.
Don't have the budget to buy accent tables right now? You can make your own in a pinch. For example, you can stack a few leather suitcases on top of one another make an accent table. Another option is to put a glass tabletop over a large clay flowerpot. Or if you have an old wood or metal stool that needs some work on top just take a piece of cloth and cover the stool with it, turning it into an instant accent table.
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.
Shapes of accent tables are varied to offer customers the greatest selection, with round, rectangular, square, and corner triangles dominating the market.
While you could conceivably get just one table and let it serve these different roles over the years, you'll find round accent tables hard to resist. By their very nature, they are spectacular pieces, meant to be the centerpiece of any space it is placed in. And while it can be the focal point, round tables are just as happy playing a supporting role.
