Item Of The Week ~ Accent Tables

Accent tables ~ they come in many sizes and shapes to fit any spot, big or small that could use a table to place a lamp, a book, a drink. They come in all different colors, wood stains, and are made of a variety of materials.


When I am dealing with a lot of straight lines in a client's home, I am prone to recommend round tables to help take the edge off. Here is a mix of accent tables in many styles and many price ranges.









This accent table is from MacKenzie-Childs and retails for $1,650.00. Painted furniture is very popular and, if you have a bit of talent and creativity, you could paint your own accent table from a yard sale or basement find.





This curvy legged piece is from Pier 1 and retails for $129.95. A great fit for any room and I even like to use them in large master baths to hold towels and bath items near a deep soaking tub.


This photo shows a fairly traditional table from Pottery Barn which retails for $179-199.00, depending on the color you choose. I have used this table several times in clients' homes. The price is affordable, it fits in most rooms very well as a side table, and has a large enough surface to hold a lamp and a few other items.

This multi-faceted, mirrored table is from West Elm and retails for $199.00. This table will add a little bit of modern glam and would work great in a bedroom.
For those who like something a little different or as a conversation starter, this table from Bellacor retails for $267.75. This might make a nice entry table, with just enough room to hold keys and mail on its top.



This neat modern looking table comes from Target and retails for $129.99. It is only available online. This table won't take up a lot of visual room with it's sinewy base shape and glass top.



This table is probably the least expensive of this grouping. From Ikea, it retails for $19.99, and with its pedestal base and round top will fit in with just about any decor. It's also inexpensive enough that if you chose to, you could paint it.

Don't forget to check out some of your local favorites. We have Home Goods here, but you could also check with Tuesday Morning, Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and any other home discount store.

I love the painted accent table. I decoupaged and painted a small trunk a couple years ago. I used vintage postcards and it came out great. Thank you!

I like the Target table best...I lean toward modern and minimalistic

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Thanks Cammie!

I love painted furniture myself Martha, so that is one of my favorites.

I tried to mix it up a bit Kimberly - thanks!

Interesting that Target would carry that, don't you think, Carma? It's different for what I would think they carry.

HI, Kathy, what a pretty blog you have. I bet we would have some fun together. I love to meet up with other decorating people. Yes, I have found a neat website called Polyvore that does those boards. Have you been there? The great thing is that it saves pics from online company websites & then when you put the board together, it shows all the details in a list with pics below your board. If you haven't tried it, go take a look. That's how I do them all now.

Oh, and I see that my longtime online friend, Donna, did your banner. I can see that now, she's a great artist!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Rhoda ~ Hi! Thanks for commenting and for sharing that info on the online boards. I had not heard of them, but will go look.

Yes, Donna did my banner and blog button! She was great to work with and did a beautiful job on both! I'm hoping to work with her again in the future.

Stopping by from SITS to welcome you to the group! Those are some pretty unique tables (aside from the pottery barn one lol)

Donna @ dh designs said...

Those are some great accent tables - I'm actually working on one myself and should be applying the final coat of paint this weekend. Painted furniture is really growing on me!

Great post!

Jacqueline ~ I fell in love with their ottomans (or tuffets)several years ago. Of course, I would never pay the price they wanted, so I made my own. Not quite MacKenzie-Childs quality, but I got a colorful "tuffet", and I had a great time making several!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Lisa M ~ Thanks for the welcome! The Pottery Barn one is probably more the one I would go with in my own home, but I can certainly appreciate the other styles.

Donna ~I'm sure your table must look beautiful! I love painted furniture myself.
