End tables come in a variety of different materials. Wood, glass, metal, these are all options you can consider for your end table and they each have their own advantages. Interested in high quality look and luxury feel? Wood is the way to go. Looking for an easy to maintain table that looks great no matter what? Metal is fantastic because it doesn’t stain and it's easy to clean without damaging. Trying to find a modern material that goes well with other materials and styles? Glass is probably the most versatile material in that it is combined with metal, wood, or even acrylic.
You can find end tables in any shape you can imagine. Different shapes have benefits for certain situations so check out a couple tips below to figure out which shape fits your design.
Round End Tables: Round end tables work great in rooms that have plenty of space and utilize creative layouts. The absence of straight lines makes it easy to put the table anywhere in a room and still balance other pieces of furniture well.
Square End Tables: Square end tables are good for rooms with less usable space as they slide easily next to your couch or chair. The straight lines help build structure throughout your living room, which is perfect for modern or industrial design styles.
