For the past several months I’ve been wanting to create a space that I can read a book, think about future projects, or watch tv in. Over the next few months, I hope to give my office a fresh new look, something brighter and just some overall updating. This little cozy spot I created is the first little bit, and today I’m showing you How To Pick & Decorate The Right End Table for your space.
When considering End Tables or Accent Tables for your space you need to know a few things before you start.
- What is your decor style?
- Is your furniture big & bulky or streamlined & compact?
- How tall is the furniture piece you will be pairing your accent table with?
- Do you have a budget?
As I was shopping for my space I knew that I not only needed the accent table, I also needed a great chair to go with it. So I started with the chair first. I found this Threshold™ Upholstered Tufted Chair in Target stores. It was perfect. A little feminine with the tufting and spindled legs, and armless so it fits in my small space.
Next I needed an accent table. While in the store I was able to try out several styles of tables alongside the chair. The table should be in proportion with your furniture, this is why you need to measure the height of your existing pieces and consider the overall style of your decor. In my case, I needed a table that was close to the same height as the seat of my chair since it was armless. The taller the arm on your furniture the taller the table you can have.
I also needed to consider the style. I wanted something round since I knew the space would be close to the corner of my office. Visually the soft lines of a round table will help to not make the space feel cramped in a corner.
I loved the idea of a metal table since I have boys who can be harsh on things. My guys are pretty respectful of our home, but every once in a while someone likes to drag something heavy across tables. The table I chose was perfect, it’s heavy and very durable.
The features and design of the table are what sold me. A little touch of industrial metals mixed with the small touches of brushed gold detail. It wasn’t too feminine, the perfect fit with the tufted chair. A little bit of both feminine and masculine combined.
The decor should help the eye to continue to move around your space, not just stop at the table. I chose to not put a lamp on my table since I have a huge overhead ceiling fan that provides enough light. I kept my design focused on simple accessories that reflected who I am. A little modern mixed with a little vintage.
Do you see how I created a “stairway” with my decor? I kept my tallest item, which is this amazing Threshold™ Gold Sea Urchin Figurine to the side where my gallery art stopped. It helped to fill in a blank space. I used some vintage books, a small vintage brass and glass box filled with coral colored stones to pull in some of my accent colors. I then added a bit more color with this multi-color succulent arrangement. This decorative bird figurine just called my name.
When placing decor on accent tables it will just depend on the style of the decor and what pieces you’ve chosen as to how to place them. Stacked books, small succulent arrangements, table lamps, decorative figurines, small decorative boxes, etc are all great options. Just remember to keep in balanced, don’t overwhelm your table…you still need a spot to set down a drink or the book you’re reading.
Choosing accent tables and decor doesn’t need to be expensive either. When you’ve set your budget start looking around, one reason I love Target SO much is because of their amazing styles and prices. Check your home for decor to mix in with new pieces, you’ve probably got a ton of stuff that you could give new life to with paint.
I pulled in some pops of gold and color with a quick gallery wall using items I already had on hand. Paired everything with some woven rugs with a great pattern, added a throw with a nice pop of blue for spring, and added a vintage metal magazine rack that I’ve had for years.
I love this Threshold™ Geometric Applique Throw Pillow I added to the chair. It pulls the grays and blacks together, and the pattern mixed perfectly with the whole look.
I hope you love this space as much as I do. You’ll want to head in to Target stores now; the new spring lines are hitting shelves and it’s all so fresh and fun.
