Practical and Beautiful! An accent table allows you to express your creative touches around the room effortlessly, brightening up any drab area. It can blend in perfectly with any kind of space - be it a niche corner, wall, a spacious entryway or even a bathroom - lending completeness to any living space. You can go ahead and flaunt your favorite curios, place some endearing photographs or just a place to keep your drink; whatever the purpose, a table can match it beautifully.
When it comes to the ideal contemporary table you are looking for, you have to keep in mind that your table depends upon a number of options:
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.
This takes a bit of design know-how, however. You have to find a common thread that ties all the tables together so they look like they belong. That's not to say they have to match, only that they complement one another. For example, you can choose new living room tables that are all different sizes, but share the same basic veneer pattern on the top, such as a sunburst or compass.
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.
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.
Round accent tables are often used in place of end tables in the living room, taking their place at the end of sofas or next to chairs where a reading lamp may repose. Standing either on multiple legs or a pedestal, they may be quite decorative on their own, with scalloped edges, scrolled and sculpted legs, and carved sidewalls. Drawers may be skillfully built into the rounded sides of the wood accent table. Round ones may be crafted from wood, metal, wrought iron, or any combination of these. The tops may be glass, wood, mirrored or tiled.
