Nowadays, coffee tables made of glass are increasing in popularity. Primarily, this is because they have a classy touch. Again, the versatility of glass furniture makes it more attractive. Often, glass furniture features metal joints. Therefore, they are sturdy. You can find some tables that are made purely of glass, but they can be dangerous, especially if they are made of the glass that is not tempered.
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 are a great way to add decoration to an empty corner in any room, and they are also useful to de-clutter other tables. They come in various styles, shapes, sizes, colors, and types. These tables are usually overlooked because they are more for accenting a room rather than a functional use, however they can be multi-functional, working as a display, nightstand, or end table.
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.
