Accent Tables: Accent tables are usually sold individually. They are a little splashier in appearance and are supposed to "accent" the décor in your room. As such they come in many different shapes and finishes including drum tables drop leaf tables and tilt tops. They can be used in place of end tables particularly if you just want a table on one side of the sofa or loveseat.
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.
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.
The same is certainly true of end tables. While wood tables have been traditional favorites in American homes for centuries metal end tables will give your home an entirely different look. Where wood tables add warmth metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
