Live plants and nice furniture--can they co-exist?

I've been adding a few plants to my home. I really like the look they give the rooms and I want to keep them.

The problem is that I've also inherited some family "heirlooms." My concern is that in putting plants on top of the nice tables and bookcases that I'm running the risk of water damage if I overwater a plant and water spills out.

Does anyone have any tips on how to protect wood furniture from water? Or types of plant pots that will not leak? This furniture is all old enough that it for sure doesn't have polyurethane on it; most likely the finish is varnish or shellac, in some cases with wax over that.
