Does terminology really matter? Generally no, but it can do if people use the term to you in conversation or even when you are looking for new furniture for your home. However, in general terms it does not matter at all whether your table is described as an accent table or an occasional table. In some cases occasional and accent furniture can be the same - but to say that, the definition of these terms must first be agreed. The term accent should be easy to understand - just like an accent in language, furniture of this type should emphasize a certain style, such as a statue of the jackal-headed god Anubis in an Egyptian-themed room - a home accent need not be furniture!
There are some things a home cant be complete without, like a refrigerator, a bed, or a television. A home is not a home without things that can provide comfort and convenience, and can allow the household members to relax and to unwind. Included in this varied list, among other things, should be a dependable and versatile living room table. Many people do not realize how indispensable this piece of solid wood furniture is. It can certainly do more than serve coffee, or hold lampshades.
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.
The shape is important and so is the style. For an L-shaped sofa, a rectangular coffee table is a good choice. And for a compact sofa set, the compact table will be perfect. It is safe to keep rounded tables when you are having infants and toddlers in your home. When the style is concerned you can choose them from formal, informal, vintage and modern styles. The table should match your decors. For a contemporary look you can choose a metal table with a glass top and for a classy look, you can go for the wooden tables.
