Round, square, high, low, in a nest, as a nightstand or coffee table. The side tables are so versatile that a gallery of 10 photos is too small for us. Choose the model that suits you best for your home and get lots of ideas.
1. A TRIO OF SIDE TABLES IN THE CENTER OF THE ROOM
That a side table becomes a protagonist in the center of the room is not unusual. It is a perfect solo for small spaces, but when the dimensions allow it to combine several side tables it works.
2. NEST TYPE SIDE TABLES: A SET OF HEIGHTS
In this room, side tables have been used as coffee tables and between the seats. In both cases, nest designs that play with height, so that one is “tucked” slightly below the tallest. Although they are small, being two (sometimes even three), you need a little more space.
3. SIDE TABLE TYPE NIGHTSTAND
The bedside tables are those of round top and contoured foot. They can be in any material and finish. Copy this “couple”: a wooden side table and a metal frame coffee table in black and a wooden top.
4. A CONTEMPORARY DESIGN IN BLACK METAL
The metal side tables are quite light. Within the majority of this type of table, they are (except the trunk or cube type), the metal gives them that quality. In this living room, placed next to the sofa, its design is in line with the style of coffee tables.
5. THE MOST NATURAL STYLE
Trunk-type side tables are very natural due to their rough, tree-like design. They are visually heavier as they do not have open legs that lighten the design.
6. ALSO ABROAD
The side tables are so versatile that they will surely adapt to the place where you imagine putting them. And, of course, they are also for the outside: the garden, patio, balcony, terrace or porch. In this case, you should choose tables that withstand the elements well (metal, rattan, wicker, exotic wood, synthetic materials …). If they are sheltered from the roof of a porch, the range of finishes opens.
7. TABLES GUARDING THE SOFA
One on each side of the sofa. Here the side tables decorate in pairs. In this case with identical designs, although it does not always have to be this way.
8. IN THE MASTER BEDROOM
You may have a shelf headboard in the bedroom, but the function of the nightstand is to have a comfortable support place to reach by simply reaching out from the bed. Many side tables are very similar in size to bedside tables. If you need warehouse space, place a basket between the legs.
9. AT THE FOOT OF THE BED
In this bedroom, the window and views have been used to create a rest and reading area with an armchair and a side table at the foot of the bed.
10. WHEN YOU NEED A NARROW SIDE TABLE…
Custom designs are often used or, sometimes, low bookcases are used to achieve the effect you see in this photo: a narrow side table that is attached to the sofa and with the opening open to the side.
