One thing is certain. Nested tables that can be used as end tables offer homeowners a very flexible way to offer more bang for their buck in terms of table space without making the room look too crowded. End tables are often an afterthought in a living room or great room. Often, so much time goes into making decisions about the upholstered pieces, the coffee table, the lamps and the paint, that it becomes an, "oh, and we also need some end tables" type of decision.
Perhaps no example is better than the use of small end tables. Love seats and sofas are big-ticket items and most people will want to take them to the new home. Unfortunately, furniture scaled for a home may look a bit cramped in a smaller home or apartment. This is where small end tables can save the day. You can change the scale of your end tables while still keeping your favorite upholstered furnishings.
You can also choose to increase the scale by going with small end tables that are more solid. Instead of selecting an open design, you may want to go with a cabinet design to give the appearance that they are substantial pieces. If you go with an open design with just a top and legs, it can make your small end tables appear even smaller than they really are.
The same is certainly true of end tables. While wood tables have been traditional favorites in American homes for centuries, metal end tables will give your home an entirely different look. Where wood tables add warmth, metal tables can either lend an air of sophistication or even a bit of energy to the room, depending on the type of metal you select and the design of the table itself.
