End tables are tremendously eclectic furniture items. No other table type comes in such a wide variety of both useful and style-conscious designs. For that reason - and because of their small size - end tables are often used by home decorators to introduce a different aesthetic element to a room. End tables can be all things to all people: chic, traditional, subtle, eccentric, functional, or purely aesthetic.
Choosing an End Table Style
The act of choosing an end table style owes something to both art and chemistry. Some people simply want their end tables to blend in, and that's fine. But if you like home decors that are a little complicated or have subtle undercurrents at work, end tables can be your best friends.
Shop with an open mind at first, but try to form some idea of what quality you want your end table to add to the room. That quality might be form, color, or texture, or else a certain mood, be it quirky, casual, light, or funky. Sometimes the style of an end table fits into your living room décor for no discernable reason. But most often there's some level of congruity, however small, between your end table's form, color, or material and other decorative accessories in the room.
