rrhd End Tables May 16th, 2018 - 14:35:28
When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them say a strip of silver or brass along the front you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you`re trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You`ll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making going with a similar finish for your end tables.
It`s amazing how a little thing like the material used to make a piece of furniture can change its entire character. This is certainly true with upholstered furnishings. The difference between a fabric sofa and one made of fine leather is like night and day. It`s not that one is inferior to the other. Rather it creates a different look to a room all because a certain material was chosen.
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.
An end table is intended to make it easy for people sitting in an armchair to reach their drinks nibbles or books and newspapers without having to bend down over the side of their chair to do so. The same with a coffee table - it should be set at a comfortable height. Your first priority should therefore be the dimensions of your coffee and end tables. A coffee table should ideally be at just above knee height. Your end tables should be level with the arm of the chair or sofa. This will enable you to each to the side and pick up a drink with very little effort. Too high or too low and it is more easy to spill even to drop your cup or glass.
