Sure, size matters and this often makes us overlook the little things like, for example, when we’re furnishing a space we tend to focus mostly on the big furniture pieces leaving that small bedside table or that ottoman for later. Then the time comes to think of these things and to add the finishing touches to the decor. It’s often the small details that have the biggest impact on the ambiance and decor of a space. As it turns out, that side table or those curtains you neglected to pick in the first place make a huge difference in the overall design.
Can’t decide on the size of the side table? You can get two and make the most of a corner space or that nook by the sofa. The Rogers nesting tables are made of solid canaletta walnut and they have natural maple tips which establish a subtle and eye-catching contrast. The tables are designed by C. Ballabio and they can fit a variety of spaces and settings.
The slender silhouette of the Pausa side table is very graceful and a perfect match for modern or mid-century living rooms. The table is designed by T. Colzani and features a frame made in solid canaletta walnut and a back lacquered glass top. It’s small, chic and pretty versatile thanks to its pedestal tripod base.
Tray tables are practical in a variety of cases and environments. They’re a good option for spaces that need a small side table to look and feel complete such as the lounge area in the living room. Check out Fritz, a side table designed by C. Ballabio. Its base is made of matt black metal with brushed brass accents and its top is made of solid canaletta walnut, with the inner part available with a natural or glossy finish.
The Script side table is a perfect match for most sofas and couches. You can use it in a lot of different ways: as a laptop desk, a cocktail table or a place to rest a snack or the remote control while watching TV. The table has a solid ash frame while the top is available in marble and smoked glass. It’s part of a table series by E. Gallina.
Designs such as the one of the Raster side table displayed here are quirky enough to become extremely versatile. The table doesn’t have a flat, smooth top which means you’ll have to use a tray in some cases but it does have a base which can double as a storage shelf. The Raster table is a design by T. Colzani and created using walnut. It comes with a leather-covered tray.
Sometimes referred to as C tables, accent tables such as Ralf are designed to pair well with sofas or armchairs. This particular model is designed by Andrea Parisio. It has a metal frame available with a bronzed brass or matt black finish and top that comes in lacquered wood or bronzed mirror. The base is made of marble.
The design of the Cupid side table is a little bit deceiving. You wouldn’t think it’s very stable considering how small its base is compared to its top. However, the base is a solid block of marble which not only keeps the table in a perfect upright position but also gives it a distinctive look. The table is designed by Noah Duchaufour-Lawrance.
