Console/ Sofa Tables: Generally, a console table is an accent table used for displaying accessories or other decorative items. It can be both decorative and functional. Since console tables tend to be narrow in depth, they are perfect for entry spaces, hallways or foyers. They can also be placed in front of a window or behind a sofa or love seat, hence the name "sofa" table. Console tables typically feature drawers, cabinets or stylish shelves for displaying accessories. An example of a popular and stylish console table design is the demilune, which is semi-circular or crescent shaped with a flat back side. The demilune table is designed to be pushed up against a wall and usually has 3 or 4 legs. It is perfect for smaller spaces because its frame is slightly more compact. Demilunes come in an array of styles, from the most formal and ornate to simple and casual.
Add some old world beauty to any room with an ornately carved table with a marble top. A little round scrolling metal table with glass top will fill any corner with the flavor of the Big Easy. If you like the Victorian look you can treat your guests to its definitive charm when you serve them tea on a detailed, wooden serving cart. Or bring some warmth and charm into your living room with a quilted leather ottoman storage table. It is perfect for holding a snack and hiding a fuzzy blanket. If you like to entertain some nesting tables are the way to go. Two smaller tables fit snuggly under a larger one until they are needed. Then simply place them around the room where you need them and store them with ease when you are finished.
Big or small, round or square accent tables can add style and storage space to any décor. They are perfect for the entryway, the hallway or any spot you need a table. Whether you want to brighten a drab spot in a room or simply need a table alongside the bed accent tables are the way to go. They are a fun and easy way to add to the look and feel of your home.
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.
