Memorable Accents || Say yes to unique tables & consoles that add character to every room

In many well-designed rooms, it’s the smaller furniture pieces that can make the biggest impact. Well-placed accents – including side or drinks tables, bar carts, benches, consoles and bookcases – speak to your personal style, and add welcome function where you need it most. Accent pieces work especially well in small or awkward spaces like entryways, mud rooms, dens, and guest rooms. They can also be sprinkled throughout larger living rooms or family rooms, even grouped together – for example, small tables used as part of a conversation corner. Finishing touches like clocks, lamps, and mirrors bring even more character to a room with minimal effort. And, never underestimate the power of decorative pillows, throws, and accent rugs. They can bring amazing color and pattern to a space, express your style, and increase the comfort level.

Accent Tables || Available in every imaginable size and shape, accent tables are perfect sidekicks to sofas, loveseats, and chairs. If space is really tight, a minimalist martini table is great for keeping your favorite beverage at hand. A larger side table with a shelf or two below can accommodate a lamp, plant, magazines, and decorative items. A tray table with a removable top is ideal for casual meals or snacks, and can easily move to any spot in any room. For more versatile function, consider nesting tables. The beauty of these is that you can place a lamp on the largest table, and pull out the second or third table when you need it for entertaining guests. Another smart option is a bar cart on casters for moving the party wherever you like. If you want something that deviates from traditional, try a table with an unusual shape like a triangle, hexagon or helix. Ever-popular ceramic garden stools are also a fun option because they come in every imaginable color from apple red to forest green.

Consoles & Bookcases || For entryways, hallways, and dens, a console offers beautiful style and function. Often narrow in width, consoles are an easy fit for tight spaces, and work especially well in a demilune shape. Place a lamp or a pair on top, a small bowl for keys or other incidentals, and if it has a bottom shelf, display a prized object. If the console is part of a mud room, place shoes and boots underneath, space permitting. If storage is a concern, a bookcase is a viable option, with shelves for decorative items, board games, and, of course, books.

Finishing Touches || As final layers that complete the design of a room, lamps, clocks, and mirrors add decorative function, and can even act as focal points. In addition to adding unique character, these items can easily be re-arranged or switched out if you want to change up your décor. Whether you choose classic gourd-base table lamps, modern floor lamps, or something quirky like a neon wall light or novelty lamp, you can create something fun and unique, as well as functional. In the same way, mirrors brighten a space, make a small place look larger, and come in every shape and size to suit your fancy. Clocks can add antique charm, an industrial feel, or work as an intriguing conversation piece, in addition to telling
the time.
