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.
If you`ve ever been to a friend`s home that is long on seating and short on table space in the living room or great room, then you know how important coffee and end table sets are. These little beauties not only give you a place to set stuff, like a table lamp and your remotes, but they can also help set the style of your room and really give it personality. Too often, coffee and end table sets are an afterthought. While some people like to buy the pieces individually, usually a coffee table first, then the end tables, you can also purchase them as a matched set.
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. As such, you can go with something that`s a bit larger or which makes a bigger statement. It will have the same impact on the room as a smaller wood table. If it has extensive use of glass, such as having top and bottom shelves that are glass, you can scale up even a bit more.
Choosing coffee tables and end tables is not a priority with most people when they begin to furnish their homes, and even more mature homeowners often look upon these as extras requiring little thought. Whether you are furnishing your first home or are considering renewing the aged and wilting furniture you have been using for more years than you can bear to consider, here are some suggestions that might help you.
