Help choosing end tables

Hello! I am looking for advice on square vs round end tables for my living room. I am getting them built so any design would be possible. I am also getting a sofa table built to go behind my sofa. Any advice would be appreciated!

I love the furniture on the ceiling thing!

As for end tables...I might do one round and one square so the aren't so matchy matchy. You could also have a little variation in style.

round. that middle gig is awful big - and totally square. I don't think you need any more tables in there ;)

Thanks for your suggestions. You are right. I will put a round table between the couch and love seat and none on the other side of the couch. Any ideas of something that would look nice there instead of a table. I am afraid it will look too bare I will be putting two lamps on the sofa table.

Statuary. I have a dog that was a garden thinngie and I decided I wanted to put it inside. I put it at the end of the sofa.

I change things around, so I will take it out this weekend and replace with a bunny there. My bunny is muted washes of sages and grayed whites, and he has a plate in his hand. I can place a small basket of colored eggs, a drink and a snack or a small bouquet of flowers.

I also have a garden stool that I like to use in summer, which is round.

I, too, have a sectional but my cocktail table is quite different from yours so I understand that might make a difference as far as balancing weight. My cocktail table is 36 x 36 and wrought iron with wide wood plank top, but very open and airy on bottom.

If you have lots of coffee table books, you could stack them into a table of sorts and if you no longer wanted to read them, just place a piece of glass atop them to create tabletop.

I think two rounds will be great to soften the straight lines in the room. I hope this is not rude, but have you considered an area rug to soften the area? It would look great!

I have been looking for an area rug, but am having trouble choosing a colour. We built the house last year and I am having trouble finishing off the living room. It looks very bare to me as well! If anyone has suggestions, I would love them.

I'd but another table there. I think you want surface area at all seating places so that people have convenient places to set drinks, books, eyeglasses, whatever.

Here is an area rug on overstock. It is pretty taste specific but I can really see it in your space!
