First why do you need coffee tables and end tables - or either one of these? Many use them simply for show and rarely for coffee. Others use them only when they have guests while yet others actually use them in the course of a normal day for their primary intended use.
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.
As you probably know end tables are highly desirable pieces of furniture to have in your living room great room or family room. But they usually have a bit of wasted space. Some models may offer a shelf on the bottom but not much else. With nested end tables you gain a lot of extra real estate for entertaining. As more people arrive and more potluck dishes crowd your table you can simply pull out another one of the nesting end tables and use it for the overflow.
While it`s easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic straight edged designs this simply isn`t the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron. If you`re looking for a stunning set of end tables you really can`t go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction they can come in an endless array of finishes design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
