The main reason you buy furniture is to have it serve a purpose. You use it to sit, dine, sleep and organize … but you can also choose pieces to surprise. Always attractive, furniture can also bring a sense of drama, whimsy, history and culture. Here are five end tables that will add unexpected flair in addition to function:
The Black Stone Chairside Table looks like it was mined from a quarry or uncovered during an archeological dig. The galvanized metal base holds and highlights its petrified stone top, and each table is unique due to natural variations in the stone. The Black Stone Table would be a welcome addition to a contemporary, rustic or urban style home.
All eyes will be on the legs of the Helix Chairside Table. Its black inset glass top is supported by gorgeous corkscrew, spiral legs that feature a galvanized finished metal. The contemporary look is unique and will definitely inspire comments from your guests.
The whimsical Lena Chairside Table looks like it was plucked from a garden, featuring a decorative scroll design down one side in a gold finish with inset glass top. Feminine and flirty, this table would brighten up a traditional-style home, with its elegant lines and light scale.
The gold box shape of the Argos Chairside Table will add a bit of mystery and intrigue to your room. The patina finish of the metal clad piece is highlighted with riveted trim and hardware. The Argos Table looks like you brought it home from your latest adventure abroad.
Finally, the Woody Branches Cube made from reclaimed teak wood provides an unexpected rustic touch to any style home. Evoking the scent of an autumn campfire, the piece will give a casual touch to a family room and provide a unique element of texture.
