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.
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.
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.
Why are accent tables such a decorative buy? Well, it is because they are styled in a number of beautiful ways. For example, you can purchase one that has a stunning ornamental appearance crafted from wood with a cherry finished base that is filled with detailed woodworking while having a table top filled with a patterned design achieved by different colored veneers. Or, you could get one that has more of an Asian flare featuring slightly flared legs with a base finished in a rich black color, apron that has raised slats, and a two toned table top with a black outline and a red interior, all of which is adorned with delicate bird and floral accenting.
