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.
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.
Coffee tables are also sometimes known as cocktail tables. But where did the name originate? I mean why not tea tables or wine tables. Is it because its the most popular drink in America and you just add it to "table" and it stuck ever since? Or is there more to it? Well lets first look on why coffee became the choice drink of America. Ottoman Turks introduced the beverage and the word "coffee" to Europe, where it eventually spread to America. Because of that some say that they also introduced the "coffee table" as well.
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.
