Should your table have drawers? How high should it be? What shape? What materials, and what colors are right for your home? Finding the right piece can sometimes feel like a daunting task, but it's possible to make this decision an easy one.

- Your table's height should be perpendicular to the height of your elbow.

- Simple tables should be matched with bold furniture, and vise-versa.

- Round tables can bring balance to an already-boxy room.
