Those who are shopping for an accent table need to remember a few key details in finding one that will fit in well with their other furniture in the room. Sometimes you can buy a table set that has matching accent and coffee tables. There are accent tables that have shelves and drawers to store items, which may want to keep in mind if you are needing extra storage space. Some accent tables are used simply for a place to set a drink on.
Are you a traditional decorator or are you more modern? Keeping in mind the style of the other furniture that you are pairing this table with will help you find the right style. Accent tables are often the excitement of a room that draws the eye in, adding color and definition to an interior space. Some of these tables are often painted, inlaid, or treated for an added touch. Those who are going with a rustic look may choose one similar to a log cabin style wood, and others who like the Asian look may pick one that is shorter than most and painted with an Asian pattern. Some pieces have elegant curves and carvings that adds intricacy to the table.
Often referred to as accent pieces, accent furniture is used to add character to a room or to emphasize a theme - such as the Anubis statue mentioned earlier. A chess table used for decoration is accent furniture, as is a decorative small round table holding a vase of flowers or a reed diffuser. An accent piece is generally smaller in size than the main furniture in a room, and often has little practical use other than a decorative one.
Accent tables come in many colors. If a wooden table is what you are after, a natural finish may be simple enough to add charm to your room. There are many wood types to choose from including maple, walnut, mahogany, pine, and cherry. Many table designers also paint these tables to add color to a room. You may also consider painting the table yourself as a DIY project when redecorating.
