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.
When choosing your dining table, there are several important factors to consider. Your dining furniture needs to be the correct size for your dining room, a shape that is attractive for the shape of the room it will be used in, and a style that reflects your personal taste. Budget is also an important consideration when making these decisions.
Depending on the intended use, tables will these days come with additional features like drawer compartments. The tabletops also have additional features like sliding trays. People are increasingly settling for simpler but still elegant designs of tables meant for just one specific task. For example, one may buy a table meant for studying. You could also have a picnic table. Anyway, there is still much fancy for the bigger, more conventional tables with elegant design.
