You have this empty corner in your living room that is just really taking away from the look of the rest of your space. You want to put something in that corner that will not only fill it up, but do so in a decorative way. What to do, what to do? The thing is, the solution to this problem is really a no brainer, all you have to do is rely on accent tables. One would really be an awesome investment.
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.
With as various decorations as you can visualize, there'll be accent tables to work with. When you try to find standard designs, you'll discover sleek timber surfaces, blended wood and also painted, covered in granite or marble. A butler's table-a detachable tray set on a folding base-would appearance excellent in a British Colonial living room. The strong geometric lines of a craftsman-style table in oak or a mission-style table in cherry would work with well in these timeless American layouts along with in Asian-inspired decors. A distressed repainted surface in white or a pastel would work well in a room that brings the beach indoors.
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.
