Accent tables complement a room without demanding the spotlight. Selecting the right accent table effortlessly joins function and feel, fosters continuity in a room’s design, directs traffic flow and serves as a building block for just-right interior design. It’s important to keep in mind accent tables are not bound by one style, color or shape. They include contemporary and traditional, and are sold as side tables, end tables, night stands, consoles, square, round and triangle, offering ample decorative and functional options.

An accent table can serve as a building block of interior design through its wood tone and shape, adding depth, contrast and interest to a room. “For example, if you have a lot of rectangles in your home, such as your sofa, the rug, the windows, the bookcases, etc., then round or oval accent tables bring contrast to all those sharp edges and corners providing softness, interest and energy as your eye moves around the room,” says Amy Foster, Furniture Row Companies home accessory buyer.

Consider wood tone as another layer of color for a room, Foster adds. And not all colors have to match as long as they coordinate. “As with all layers of design, contrast adds depth and dimension,” Foster says. “If you have a matching set of tables as your coffee and side table, consider purchasing the console table in a deeper tone or lighter tone to add interest. Of course, a painted accent piece or a piece made from reclaimed wood would perform the same task of adding dimension and even a little bit of soul to the room.”
