Country-Style Coffee Tables and Accent Tables
Choosing country-style coffee tables, end tables or other accent tables that complement your living-room furniture need not be a chore. Your aim is to find tables that set off your sofa and easy chairs without being the main focus of attention – and with the selection of beautiful pieces that’s available either online or in-store, your biggest difficulty is likely to be buying just one!
Country-style living often draws home-owners toward rustic or antique occasional tables – take a look at the coffee tables and accent tables featured on this page. Today, you’ll find that style and affordability go hand-in-hand – although make sure that your preferred tables are high-quality items that will withstand regular use. Although the name suggests “occasional” use, you may find your coffee table becomes one of your favourite pieces!
Size (and Shape) Does Matter …
Shape, size and construction all count for a great deal. Small square tables make ideal end tables if you’re looking to bring together other items of furniture, although you need to match the height to your intended use. Too high and people won’t find them convenient, while too low and you’ll be stooping every time you reach for your cup or glass.
Country-style suggests wooden construction, and rustic or antique finishes are popular with many interior designers. An attractive antique accent table located in a hallway or in a comfortable corner of your living room can provide the ideal finishing touch. Whatever country-style coffee table or end table you chose, buy from a reputable retailer, ideally one that features a good number of customer reviews.
