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.
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.
So when you begin searching for a few accent tables don't get frustrated by the small selection at your local stores. Instead try shopping online and you'll not only find the best selection, but also the best prices. Round and rectangle, wood or glass or even marble you are sure to find something to fit your style and your space.
Accent tables are a pretty versatile furnishing and not only are the ideal for putting in that empty corner of yours, they would also be ideal for putting in different areas throughout your home as well. Like, you could pair one up with a sofa or recliner, add one to a foyer area, and even put one at the end of a hallway if you wanted to.
