rrhd End Tables May 16th, 2018 - 14:37:47
Coffee and end table sets come in all shapes and sizes as well as styles. This can make shopping for them a bit of an adventure since there are literally hundreds if not thousands to choose from. One of the great things about going with coffee and end table sets is that you don`t have to be an experienced designer to make sure they all match or at least complement one another. Usually they are all the same design just different sizes.
First why do you need coffee tables and end tables - or either one of these? Many use them simply for show and rarely for coffee. Others use them only when they have guests while yet others actually use them in the course of a normal day for their primary intended use.
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.
Designers talk a lot about scale. Now it is true that small end tables will upset the visual balance a bit winnowing under weight of a larger love seat or sofa. There are things you can do to fix this. One is to use slightly taller lamps that still have a small base. For instance you may want to forego a ceramic or pot style lamp and use one with a candlestick post. This will make the table look bigger than it really is and the added height of the lamps will help add visual weight as well.
