Dimensions of Occasional Tables. It is open to debate which is the more important: the look and feel of your occasional tables or their dimensions. Perhaps dimensions are irrelevant if you find a superb coffee table that matches your furniture perfectly. Maybe that superb-looking end table is ideal for your sofa or armchairs. Forget their sizes - they look great so let`s buy them! Is that so? First you must consider the purpose of these occasional tables for that is what they are generally known as - occasional tables - tables that will be used on occasion or at least that is one explanation for their name. What if the end table is way below the height of the arm of your armchair? Would you feel comfortable stretching down to get a cup or glass?.
While styles and tastes have changed over the years nesting tables have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. As manufacturers have developed new takes on this classic new nesting end tables are finding their way back on the market in large numbers. In fact there are literally hundreds of designs to choose from when it comes to nesting tables from the classic look of the 1930s to rustic designs exotic models eclectic designs and of course traditional contemporary and even modern versions. There`s literally a style to match every home and that`s not even counting the finishes or materials whether it`s wood metal marble glass or a mix.
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.
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.
