The End Table: Conventional Complement or New Industry Art Form?

Client News

Eclectic “statement” pieces are becoming more and more commonplace in residential interior design. A go-to choice for professional designers, chic and colorful end tables break up the monotonous symmetry of coordinating furniture sets for many consumers.

“Art doesn’t have to match the sofa, so why should your end table?” said Jacy Painter Kelly, an interior designer with Jacy Painter Kelly Interiors in Charlotte. “End tables used to be an afterthought, but now these complementary items are becoming statement pieces that set the tone for an entire space. An end table can be subdued, or it can draw your attention the moment you enter a room. A small burst of color or creativity can invigorate a space.”

Many home design enthusiasts are recognizing that end tables can be an art form. Today’s consumers are looking for distinctive pieces that convey their personality and enrich the environment of the room. Eclectic end tables inspire shoppers envisioning a perfect space that’s uniquely theirs.

“Mixing mediums and materials is also huge right now, and statement end tables instantly add interest to a room,” Kelly said. “Even mixing styles can be fun, and while end tables should always coordinate with your room’s overall style, they don’t have to be purchased in pairs anymore.”

Hammary Furniture’s table groups deliver a range of styles that are popular with consumers. The end tables suit a range of tastes from modern farmhouse and urban industrial to updated mid-century modern and contemporary and sleek. The assorted designs incorporate some of today’s top trends, such as timeless twists on primary colors, geometric body styles and metallic finishes. Decadent gold, classic bronze, opulent silver and sophisticated nickel surfaces in particular have gained traction among consumers and bring a refined, modern tone to the pieces.
