Accent Tables as Statement Pieces

on Sep 02, 2015 in Accents, Living Room

Distinctive accent tables can be the focal point of any room; it just takes care to choose the right one.  In this post, we’ll explore accent tables and the elements that make them unique.

 

Unique Texture

These Hermes Reef accent tables feature custom fused glass tops.  The top surface presents soft undulations while the bottom introduces a distinctive organic bubble pattern.

Contrasting the glass tops are stylized Asian bases designed in hammered metal.  The juxtaposition of thick, textured glass against a linear frame truly creates a bold design statement.

 

Color and Symmetry

Ottomans, when paired, create unique statement pieces.  A burnished rose gold finish on the Beldon Ottoman contrasts rich ruby hues, while subtler neutral tones highlight the refined detailing on the Mackay Ottoman.  Both uses of materials create an original look sure to generate conversation.

Pattern Play

A bold, tufted leopard print grabs attention with this generously scaled cocktail ottoman.  A removable hammered copper tray brings out bronzed tones throughout the piece. 

Classically turned legs add a sophistication to the piece, while a stretcher base creates a cohesive look.

 

Distinctive Material and Form

Leather bound rattan, cracked penn shell and woven raffia are materials that transform an expected piece into an extraordinary one.  Couple this with eye-catching form and you create a statement piece.  Whether it is the soft quatrefoil design of the Spar Point Chairside Table or the deliberate and intricate lines of the  Flamingo Octagonal End Table, each has a memorable shape.

  

 

Accent pieces can become statement pieces when original color, form and materials are utilized.
