The tables you select for your room can have major impact on the both the design, and the function. When making your selections, here are a few criteria to keep in mind which will ensure the room functions well, and looks great. An accent table is there for the sake of completing a seating arrangement, and to provide enough surface for setting a beverage during conversation, or perhaps your book or magazine. It is not intended to hold a lamp, and will often have a floor lamp situated behind it.
A functional table does just that: adds function to the room. It is in easy reach of the main pieces of furniture, will usually support a lamp, and should have enough space for performing whatever activities take place in that space: holding the remotes, drinks, books, food, accessories, etc. It is difficult to accomplish this with a table of less than 24 inch.
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.
