Mix And Match Your Styles

With so many different options available for your accent tables, it would be a crime to buy only one.

Some people might see the limitless options as intimidating, but we see it as an opportunity.

And not only should you buy more than one accent table, but you should also mix and match their styles.

Mix and match the shapes, materials, and colors to get the perfect combination that matches your unique style.

Here are some guidelines to follow when you mix and match your accent tables:

  1. When matching wooden accent tables, you should be sure they match in tone. Using a blend of different wood types and finishes creates a natural organic mix, but blending works best when you match warm and cool colors separately.
  2. If you're mixing metal tables, feel free to mix more than one type of finish, Metals like gold, brass, and bronze all work wonderfully together to create a dynamic impact, and unlike wood, matching warm and cool tines will create a chic effect.
  3. Mix metal and wood. The best combinations of accent tables are often the most unique. A blend of wooden and metal tables can create a rustic industrial style, or bold, colored, dramatic pieces can create exotic duos.
  4. When you mix and match shapes and sizes, you're adding variety to the aesthetic of your living space. Try mixing a small round table with a large rectangular table to create a mix that pops and place them conveniently in open spaces in the room.

Make A Statement

While being very practical and useful, you can do so much more with your accent table.

The perfectly chosen accent table, or set of accent tables, will provide a pop of style to your room, all while making a statement and showing off your unique style.

So don't settle when it comes to you accent tables.

Be creative and use your imagination. Your options are nearly limitless here.
