Even though it`s easier to find lovely end tables for the home than ever before knowing exactly what constitutes an end table has become much more difficult. To help you sort it all out here are some basics: End Tables: Though they`ve been separated from their coffee table siblings end tables usually come in pairs still. They are designed to go at the end of each side of a sofa or next to a set of chairs and can have drawers for storage and lower shelves for use as a display space. They are large enough to hold a lamp and some knick-knacks.
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.
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.
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.
