Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such they come in many different shapes and finishes including drum tables drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
Smaller end tables aren`t just for the living room. If you have two end tables you can repurpose the second one in another room. For example you can use one as a nightstand in a second bedroom or even the master. You can also convert one into an accent table and place it in a corner of the bedroom or any room in the home. Add some photos or a floral arrangement and you`ll have a nice addition without having to break up the set permanently.
Speaking of bedrooms don`t think that nesting end tables can`t be used as nightstands. They are a great solution for the bedroom too replacing the traditional nightstand with a much more useful and versatile stack of matching tables that can either be stacked out of sight and out of mind bedside or used throughout the room tying in the décor with matching tables that can always be nested again on a moment`s notice.
Somewhere along the line however everything became more complex. Some blame the conversation pit era; that crafty sofa that didn`t really have an end. Venerable end tables simply had nowhere to go. Coffee tables were suddenly on their own placed in the center of the pit so visitors had a place to put their drinks while they well conversed. Today end tables have made a comeback. No longer sold automatically in pairs with a coffee table they have struck out on their own joined by accent tables occasional tables drum tables side tables... the list goes on and on and on.
