If you are a bit of a novice in selecting furnishings, this can be a real godsend. Usually all you have to do is pick a style (transitional, contemporary, modern, rustic, etc.) and then focus on the color of the wood or finish. Here`s a little tip in that regard. If you have wood accents on your upholstered pieces, you want to pick the same type of wood, stain or color for your coffee and end table sets. This will ensure that they look like a family of pieces, rather than having something stick out like a sore thumb because it`s the wrong color.
Keep in mind that you don`t have to follow any conventions when selecting tables for your home. While traditional coffee tables and end tables are square or rectangular, there`s no rule saying you can`t pick a round or oval model, or even improvise and go with a totally non-traditional piece that will fill the bill nicely, such as a trunk or chest. The important thing is to choose what you like. Thankfully, matching sets make the process much easier, since you can make a single purchase and enjoy the enduring beauty of three quality pieces of furniture that not only match one another, but match the room as well. You may have never thought of using nesting tables as end tables, but they offer you a lot of advantages over traditional end tables. First, let`s explain what nesting end tables are. Think of them as a table that fits under a table that fits under a table.
Matching the Room Décor. Coffee tables and end tables should punctuate your general room decor and not strictly clash with it. However, should you have reason to prefer them not to match then there is no strict rule about this. Nevertheless, your room decoration will look more harmonious if your occasional tables match with your general living room furniture.
That`s what nesting end tables are. They are perhaps the most flexible piece of furniture you could own, since one moment they can serve as a lovely end table, but when guests are over or the holidays roll around, you have additional table space for appetizers, drinks and the usual overflow of desserts. Nesting tables are a rather new concept in furnishings. The idea originated between 1930 and 1935. The original designs consisted of three to four small tables that could be stacked one upon the other. As time went on, designers also figured out that they could also be stored one under another, creating a piece of furniture that offered maximum space in a very small package.
