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.
Coffee Tables and End Tables: Placement. The end table should be placed right up beside the arm of the chair. Not directly in contact because any subsequent movement of then chair could easily shake the table and spill the contents of any container. Coffee tables should be placed 18" from the sofa enough room to enable you to walk between the two items of furniture but not so far as to place your cup out of each.
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.
If you do have small end tables that are open you may want to consider adding a contrasting linen or lace piece to the top and even have it extend over and down the sides some. This will give your table a bit more bulk without taking up added space. For really small homes you can eliminate one of the end tables entirely. While it`s nice to have end tables on both ends for convenience and balance there is no hard and fast rule requiring this. You may be able to make due with a single table and perhaps add a floor lamp on the other side to add light and even things out visually.
