Looking for an attractive finishing touch that's also practical? A light wood accent table may be the answer. Versatile and compact, these pieces can perk up an unused corner or sit front and center to display candles, planters, or a decorative lamp. Try placing a pair of light wood accent tables at either end of a sofa to hold books, magazines, remotes, phone chargers, and anything else you need to keep close at hand.

The variety of styles available for light wood accent tables makes it a breeze to incorporate them with your existing decor. Look for sets of two or three nesting tables that sit together as a single unit and split apart to accommodate guests at your next party. A light wood accent table with chrome legs also offers a cool, modern twist on a traditional look.
