Size isn’t everything—especially when it comes to interior design. An essential piece to any well-thought out room, a side or accent table may not take up a lot of space but these must-haves sure add a lot of style. The perfect finishing touch to make any space feel as functional as it is fabulous, these little pieces make the most of their small stature to create big design potential.
An often overlooked piece of furniture, a good rule of thumb for side tables is that every chair or sofa should have a landing spot to rest your beverage, book, phone, or whatever else. When deciding which is best, make sure to evaluate the surroundings and ensure that the scale is right. Try not to go higher than the arm of your sofa or armchair, and if storage is an issue consider something that has drawers or a bottom shelf to include a basket for books and magazines.
An accent table is not only practical but a great way to add visual interest to your space, so instead of going super matchy, try picking a table that stands apart from the rest of your larger pieces like the coffee table and sofa. If your space is mostly composed of darker tones like navy or hunter green, we love adding a little sparkle with a sleek side table in gold or silver with a smooth marble or glass surface. While a natural wood option is great for adding warmth to super modern, neutral spaces. Regardless of your personal preference, there’s a stunning side table to suit your needs.
