Vallee End Table October 11th, 2017 - 12:29:57
When using round end tables, try to think out of the box. Theres not really much difference between end tables, accent tables and nightstands, so if you cant find a style you like in one section of an online or brick and mortar store, check in some of these related categories. Todays designs allow you to mix and match concepts, putting what was once an end table next to the bed or for use in a guest room as a display stand.
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.
When company comes over, just store all the toys in the drawers and doored units of your coffee and end table sets. Keep in mind that you dont have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular, theres no rule saying you cant pick a round or oval model, or even improvise and go with a totally nontraditional piece that will fill the bill nicely, such as a trunk or chest.
Smaller end tables arent just for the living room. If you have two end tables, you can repurpose the second one in another room. For example, you can use one as a nightstand in a second bedroom or even the master. You can also convert one into an accent table and place it in a corner of the bedroom or any room in the home. Add some photos or a floral arrangement and youll have a nice addition without having to break up the set permanently.
