Side tables in the living room make a lot of sense. Instead of one large central table, you can preserve space by placing a smaller table at each armrest for easy access. Side tables have loads of other uses across the house too – choose a design that will be practical to use and adds interest to your existing arrangement.
Nested side tables are a great way to pack form and function together. For a more glamorous and vintage feel, choose nested tables with marble tops and curved gold bases. Place them staggered next to each other for a statement or position them alone across the room so each person gets their own table.
If you want your side tables to fit into your earthy, natural look, choose something in wood or rattan. These pieces are perfect for perching your mug, and can be instantly styled with a large artificial plant. Pick one of our more unusual side tables to use as plant stands across the home.
When you’re putting out a tea tray or want to keep canapes in the centre of the room, push two side tables together to instantly form a larger surface. If you want to hide magazines and remotes, choose pieces with drawer storage.
