Whatever the case, if it was the decision of the British, or even Chinese, wed be calling it "tea table" today. And actually in those lands they do often use that term. But as the fact stands, the cup that most often lands on American tables is filled with coffee, and so the name has stuck. So here we have it, the modern coffee table, now more popular then ever. And its true it doesnt really matter where it gets its name, I mean some people wont even let you put coffee on their supposed "coffee" table. But its just neat to see how things have come a long way and evolved through time.
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.
Coffee tables and end tables are examples of occasional furniture. There are alternative definitions for this type of furniture, the two most common being furniture that is used on an occasion, and furniture that is used only occasionally. Each of these definitions is so broad, that they could practically be said to be fundamentally the same. The former definition would include coffee tables, used on the occasion of drinking coffee - or any other beverage or drink.
Accent tables come in different sizes. Some are shorter and small, perfect for holding something as simple as a lamp or plant, while others are tall and large, acting as an end table. Measuring the area you want to put your table will help in picking out the right one for your room. If it is meant to be functional, then taking note of the table top would be wise. Knowing what you want to place on the table and how you want to use it will help in choosing the right size for your accent table.
