It would also include all furniture used in a lounge used only when visitors arrive, or even in a spare guest room. Definitions are a poor way to describe furniture. The second definition used occasionally would refer to exactly the same furniture, but also include rockers, particularly the old-style hickory rockers that you might use occasionally when in the mood. You might occasionally use an ottoman to sit on if all the family arrived to visit. Quite frankly, definitions are needless when people know what occasional furniture is.
A small table in an entrance hall is accent furniture, along with a chest in a hallway and a large free standing globe in a home office. It sets a theme or a mood, emphasizes a trend or even complements the purpose of a room such as an ornate oriental footstool in a living room. These are definitions of accent furniture and occasional furniture in the eyes of many people, but if you asked any individual for their own definition they would either be unable to answer or would likely offer a different one.
Accent tables can also be different types of tables. For example, a nightstand in a bedroom can be used as an accent table or as an end table in a living room. These tables offer charm and also function, holding lamps, phones, clocks, books, plants, and pictures. These tables are a great way to showcase collections and meaningful objects. It is also important to keep in mind that you will want a sturdy accent table if you are placing heavy objects on it. Whatever type you are looking for, there is sure to be one that will catch your eye and serve its purpose.
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.
