You want the functions of an end table, with a sturdy construction, but still aesthetically pleasing. It needs to be something sleek, perhaps a bit bold and inviting at the same time. It might even dominate your living room furniture. The best accent table for the job is the WE Furniture AZF18MWSTRO Table, for its laminate top and metal frame.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - WE Furniture AZF18MWSTRO Table\r\nDurable and sturdy, yet elegant with its wooden laminate table top and metal legs, this mid-century modern end table fits snug inside a modern farmhouse.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe WE Furniture AZF18MWSTRO Side Table Rustic Oak did so well combined with a mid-century modern home\u2014especially in a modern farmhouse with exposed wood and remnants of what it once was. It didn\u2019t just look good, it functioned well too. Its thick table top and metal frame means you can place some rather heavy decorations on top without the worry of tipping\u2014up to 50 lbs, in fact. However, its laminate top is prone to chipping if you do not take care of it; otherwise it isn\u2019t an issue. It does not handle as much as the Monarch Specialties I 2445, however.\r\nDesign\r\nThe WE Furniture Rustic Farmhouse Round Side Table AZF18MWSTRO is a bit on the large size, being nearly twice the size of a Decor Therapy FR1566, but with far fewer finishes. There\u2019s a choice between three: reclaimed barnwood, dark walnut, and concrete. When assembling, you\u2019ll realize there\u2019s very few pieces to worry about. It only takes a few minutes to install before it\u2019s holding your favorite vase, book and or alarm clock. Its pleasing and simple design fits well next to a couch, chair, or bed, unlike the Crown Mark Draper Console Table Espresso.\r\nValue\r\nIs the WE Furniture Rustic Farmhouse Round Metal Side End Accent Table Living Room 18 Inch Brown Reclaimed Barnwood worth considering? Yes, because of one reason: complimentary furniture. Walker Edison Furniture Company offers coffee tables that match the end tables, making for a complete and beautiful set. It\u2019s a much wider, though lower version of the end table that offers much of the same benefits and use. Considering its performance and design on top of that, we'd say it has really good value overall.\r\nWE Furniture AZF18MWSTRO Table Wrap Up\r\nThe WE Furniture AZF18MWSTRO Table needs the right colors and accents to really shine in its setting, given its limited finishes. When it has, assembly is quick and painless. You\u2019ll soon realize afterwards just how tough it is, and fragile the laminate can be if not cared for properly. If it is, it will serve you well for years to come.
