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.
If you`ve ever been to a friend`s home that is long on seating and short on table space in the living room or great room then you know how important coffee and end table sets are. These little beauties not only give you a place to set stuff like a table lamp and your remotes but they can also help set the style of your room and really give it personality. Too often coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually usually a coffee table first then the end tables you can also purchase them as a matched set.
Chairside Tables: End tables can be used as chairside tables of course. The only difference is the chairside table often has a smaller footprint and is sized to place next to a recliner or chair. Smaller end tables can do the same thing offering you flexibility in your room designs. Nesting tables: If you entertain frequently nesting tables make great end tables as well. The different sized tables tuck under one another when not in use and pull out as needed to add more table space when you have guests over.
Another thing to factor in is the visual weight. If you purchase metal and glass tables for example they will not carry the same weight as a wood table. As such you can go with something that`s a bit larger or which makes a bigger statement. It will have the same impact on the room as a smaller wood table. If it has extensive use of glass such as having top and bottom shelves that are glass you can scale up even a bit more.
