Tables are said to have existed from as far back as a 4000 years ago. The pioneers of tables in the home were the Greeks who used to have metal or wooden tables decorated with various arts. They were necessary to decorate any home interior. This is why you would find Italians choosing similar but smaller tables with a column that ran through the middle.
Proportion: An end table should neither overwhelm the furniture it sits with, nor be swallowed by it. Is it to be grouped with a main piece of furniture (see functional table above), or is it more for show (see accent table)? Alongside a sofa, the depth of the table should be relative to the depth of the arm. Most sofas are at least 34 inch deep, with many topping 40 inch. A reasonable end table for this purpose will be around 20x27 inch rectangular, or 28 inch round. A big, beefy club chair will need a big, beefy table, and your petite antique wing chairs will need something much smaller, with more delicate lines.
Tables are a must have piece of furniture. Therefore, when we go to choose tables for our home, we should choose those that will enhance the rest of the homes decor. There are many uses for a table and these generally fall in the category of utility uses and for aesthetic purposes. When we talk of utility, what is meant is that the table can be used to do household chores like reading while in aesthetics we can put a flower vase on it.
