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.
Nesting end tables can also come in handy during those big screen sports events your family loves to host. If you don`t have a coffee table or it it`s too small to handle the munchies and drinks of a big game, you can pull out the nesting tables and put them into immediate service. You can also use these tables in lieu of a coffee table. Buying a third set of nesting tables to use as a tiered or multi-level coffee table ties the entire room together, while giving you even more space. And if you need a table in another room, such as when your child is sick, you can simply pull out one of the nested tables and use it instead of putting everything on the bed or letting the nightstand overflow with hankies and medicines.
When shopping for end tables you want to consider a few things. First, the finish. If your sofa or other furnishings have a metal accent to them, say a strip of silver or brass along the front, you want to make sure that your tables have the same finish. The same is true if you`re trying to match a coffee table you already have. For example, you may have a lovely coffee table with antique brass hardware. You`ll want to use this as a springboard in your own decision-making, going with a similar finish for your end tables.
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.
