Perhaps no example is better than the use of small end tables. Love seats and sofas are big-ticket items and most people will want to take them to the new home. Unfortunately furniture scaled for a home may look a bit cramped in a smaller home or apartment. This is where small end tables can save the day. You can change the scale of your end tables while still keeping your favorite upholstered furnishings.
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.
Nesting end tables can also come in handy during those big screen sports events your family loves to host. If you don`t have a coffee table or it it`s too small to handle the munchies and drinks of a big game you can pull out the nesting tables and put them into immediate service. You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room such as when your child is sick you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
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.
