If you do have small end tables that are open you may want to consider adding a contrasting linen or lace piece to the top and even have it extend over and down the sides some. This will give your table a bit more bulk without taking up added space. For really small homes you can eliminate one of the end tables entirely. While it`s nice to have end tables on both ends for convenience and balance there is no hard and fast rule requiring this. You may be able to make due with a single table and perhaps add a floor lamp on the other side to add light and even things out visually.
That`s what nesting end tables are. They are perhaps the most flexible piece of furniture you could own since one moment they can serve as a lovely end table but when guests are over or the holidays roll around you have additional table space for appetizers drinks and the usual overflow of desserts. Nesting tables are a rather new concept in furnishings. The idea originated between 1930 and 1935. The original designs consisted of three to four small tables that could be stacked one upon the other. As time went on designers also figured out that they could also be stored one under another creating a piece of furniture that offered maximum space in a very small package.
If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional contemporary modern rustic etc. and then focus on the color of the wood or finish. Here`s a little tip in that regard. If you have wood accents on your upholstered pieces you want to pick the same type of wood stain or color for your coffee and end table sets. This will ensure that they look like a family of pieces rather than having something stick out like a sore thumb because it`s the wrong color.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
