Bisaillon End Table October 19th, 2017 - 12:37:43
Each of the various styles of end tables offer their own touch to the rooms they reside in. Because of this, you want to make sure the ones you buy will work well with the furniture you already have. For instance, if you have a very modern sofa with a new age look, you dont want end tables featuring a Queen Anne design. Instead, you would want to shop from the contemporary end tables on the market. The other various styles of end tables probably wouldnt suit your needs.
The same is true if youre trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. Youll want to use this as a springboard in your own decisionmaking, going with a similar finish for your end tables. Another thing to factor in is the visual weight. If you purchase metal and glass tables for example, they will not carry the same weight as a wood table.
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 its 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.
Round tables are really in this year as a style, but while round coffee tables and round dining tables have taken center stage, it can be harder to find round end tables. Thats not to say that these tables arent still trendy. Its just that traditional brick and mortar retailers have only so much room for furniture and these other round tables have captured all the press this year. Thankfully, there is still a great selection of round coffee tables online and online retailers in some cases, have them priced to move.
