Side Table

A side table is one of the last finishing pieces to complete your living room’s design. While we sometimes don’t pay enough attention to accessorizing our end tables, it can actually be a beautiful statement piece on its own, and it is actually an essential part of the living room, just like the coffee table.
But styling an end table can sometimes be a challenge – you need to consider the desired aesthetic you want to achieve to complete your interior design scheme and its intended use, whether you need it as a place to put the remote control, your book, your cup of tea, a candle or even a small lamp to enjoy reading or even just lounging on your sofa.
In today’s blog post, we’ll share our favorite and simple tips for making it a beautiful and practical surface.

Styling your end table

STEP ONE: CHOOSE YOUR TABLE.

Choose a side table that is the same height as your sofa’s arm for an easier reach. And if you’ve got a chunky sofa, opt for a table with legs for a more airy and beautifully balanced visual.

STEP TWO: ADD BOOKS.

Place some of your favorite books to elevate the setting. They are a great design element to bring in some texture and they act as a perfect base to stack and layer other pieces. We prefer using hardcover books on topics like design, travel, and food.

STEP THREE: BRING IN THE NATURE ELEMENT.

Breathe life into your corner with some greenery. Use a small vase that will fit perfectly on your table and add some color and texture.

STEP FOUR: PLACE DECORATIVE OBJECTS.

You can add something functional like coasters, as well as something personal like displaying some framed family photographs to add a more personalized aspect to the vignette.

STEP FIVE: USE A LIGHT SOURCE.

If you have a small side table, opt for floor lamps instead of a table lamp, they will help you balance the look and keep the table from getting cluttered.

STEP SIX: STEP BACK AND TAKE A LOOK.

For a functional and nicely collected look, keep it simple and don’t over style it. Always leave room to place your drink or snack without knocking things over!
