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.
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.
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.
Coffee tables and end tables should also meet the purpose you have intended for them. In some cases this will be simply as a repository for a coffee cup or drinks glass. For others it might mean holding countless magazines or `coffee table` books. Whatever your purpose is your occasional tables should meet your needs while also matching the rest of the furniture in the room - or by contrasting with it by design.
