Some accent tables have been crafted with a particular purpose in mind. Telephone tables were very popular during the reign of tabletop rotary dial telephones, and were designed to hold the telephone on the surface with a drawer underneath to hold the telephone directory. Entry tables were designated to stand stately next to the home`s main entry door, often under a mirror where one might check her appearance before retrieving her car keys from the drawer of the table and leaving the house. Regardless, all of them can play double duty in your home. Shapes of accent tables are varied to offer customers the greatest selection, with round, rectangular, square, and corner triangles dominating the market.
Metals, cane or rattan, and plastics have their place, particularly for outdoor and patio furniture. However, none of these has the look of high quality solid wood furniture. For accent pieces, yes, metals and even ceramics and glass can look great. A smoked glass top on a coffee table can be very attractive in the correct setting, but for a main dining table you cannot beat solid wood.
