Think of a luxurious hotel lobby. Whether it is among the grand resorts from a bygone century or a stylish location in a large city, you'll discover comparable things in all these areas. You'll see welcoming seating, flattering lighting, gorgeous floorings-- as well as tables. Tables, not for eating, except seminars, but wonderful accent tables placed simply to make you a little a lot more comfortable. These practical little pieces of furniture are often forgotten and also unnoticed, but you would miss them if they weren't there. Picture-- no area to put your handbag, your beverage, or your paper while you wait.
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?
Coffee Cocktail Tables: The coffee, or cocktail table, is probably the most functional of the bunch. It is a low table typically placed in front of a sofa where magazines can be placed and coffee or cocktails served. Here, the general rule of thumb is that you should look for a table that is at or about the same height as your sofa or chair seat cushion, but no more than an inch or two shorter as you do not want it to be difficult or uncomfortable for your guests to reach. Another current design trend is to opt for the oversized ottoman as coffee table. By placing a tray on top of an oversized ottoman, you create a more stable surface and an attractive focal point.
End Tables: An end table is a small table placed beside a chair or at each end of a sofa. It should be relative in depth to the arm of the chair or sofa it flanks. Additionally, it is wise to choose a table that is proportionate in scale to the surrounding furniture. For example, an overstuffed sofa calls for a table larger or bulkier in size while a petite wing chair needs a smaller table with a more delicate frame and lines. A current design trend is to mix and match styles and shapes. In fact, rather than matching all the furniture in a bedroom suite, some people choose to use mix and matched end tables in lieu of night stands. If you are unsure about whether or not your tables fit together, a good rule of thumb is to try to coordinate the table legs with the lines and curves of your furniture.
