rrhd End Tables May 16th, 2018 - 14:41:46
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.
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.
If you have a large bath you can add a smaller table there as well. Here you can keep reading material or some lotions and other toiletries for guests to use. If your table has drawers you can keep clippers Q-tips and other necessities so guests don`t have to feel awkward looking through your cabinets in search these items that everyone seems to need but no one can find. You can even add a little touch of bed and breakfast by putting a folding tent sign that says that these things can be found in the drawer.
While it`s easy to think of metal end tables as being very basic straight edged designs this simply isn`t the case. Modern manufacturing techniques have given homeowners more choice than ever before from more modern designs that will fit in well in a contemporary décor to highly ornate pieces made out of cast aluminum or iron. If you`re looking for a stunning set of end tables you really can`t go wrong with steel. Because they are so adaptable in terms of construction they can come in an endless array of finishes design and styles. Many mix metal with glass or ceramics. You can also get metal tables that are blended with wood elements which may be the perfect match to a transitional or more traditional design. Or metal end tables that are a mix of metal and stone.
