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.
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.
In some cases you can purchase such tables to match your existing furniture or if completely renewing your living room furniture they can be included in a collection. In the latter case your choice is simple but what if not? What if you are looking for a coffee table or end table that is not part of a set but you feel you need one or both to make your living room look complete? Here are some tips.
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure since there are literally hundreds if not thousands to choose from. One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you don`t have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design just different sizes.
