If you're like the majority of people, you take an inventory of the various furniture you have in your house periodically. Think of your accent tables. You may check out them and ask 'do they still fit with the design style you are moving in the direction of in your home?' Are they still strong enough to do their work? Exist any kind of damages, dings or spots that are making them unpleasant?
When an interior designer wants to accentuate a furniture piece they utilize an easy trick; they 'framework' the piece to offer it focus. A large couch can be 'mounted' by matching tables with lovely lamps, a home window is 'framed' by intricate drapes, a fireplace is 'mounted' by bookcases or shelves.
Another nice feature of accent tables along with their beauty is how they are practical. Remember, they are a table and they have lovely, spacious surfaces where you can nicely set down and display pretty much anything that you want from family photos, to vases filled with flowers, and lamps to add extra lighting to your space. There are some that even feature different storage options like drawers, shelves, and cabinets, giving you a nice spot to tuck away books, magazines, remote controls, and even special keepsakes.
Welcome guests with an entryway table decked with a vase of fresh flowers and they'll think they have entered an upscale resort. Place an accent table in the hall below a mirror. Not only will it be an interesting stopping point on the way through your home it is the perfect place for showing off a favorite vacation photo and storing some linens. Place a small round table in a corner to add interest and a resting spot for a hurricane candle or vase of fresh blooms. No matter where you put one you'll just love the extra display and storage space.
