This lovely living room becomes a still life in and of itself thanks to the thoughtfully-appointed furnishings and modern accents. The painting on the wall was done by the grandson of architect Stanford White, who put an addition onto the home.
Take a closer look at this corner of the living room, and you'll see a round end table peeking out from behind the sectional. With plush pillows and a throw in reach, this spot encourages the owners to curl up and read.
End tables with metal legs are an excellent choice for rooms occupied by pets, especially teething puppies. For a kid-friendly touch, stick with rounded tables. Without the sharp corners found in square or rectangular tables, round tables are safer for kids to play around.
