Looking for end tables to complete your living space? You’re in the right place. So many styles like lamp tables and side tables so you’re sure to find the perfect look that works just for you.
End tables are essential components of any great living room—just as important as coffee tables and your living room seating. Also, the perfect complement to any reclining furniture. They hold your drinks, remote, home décor…so much work for one tiny little table. There are lots of things to consider when deciding on which table or tables to go with. And if you have some questions, don’t worry, we’re here to help. Take a look at some of our frequently asked ones and the answers, too.
Are there rules when it comes to the size of your end tables? We wouldn’t say rules as much as there are guidelines. If possible, try to keep the top of your table roughly in line with your sofa (give or take a couple of inches). Also, try not to have your table too deep—you don’t want the depth to be bigger than the depth of your sofa.
Should my end tables match my coffee table? They can! If you’re going for a seamless, traditional look then a set could be right up your alley. However, if you like the look of mixing and matching (which we do!), then feel free to play with it. Have a wood coffee table? Consider a marble or metal end table. Texture and visual interest is key in designing a living space that makes a statement.
Do my end tables have to match? Again, up to you. Choose a set or mix things up with two different styles!
What about shape—what should I get? Totally your choice! For the most part, there are square and round options. They all come in different weights and styles, though, so that’s something to take into account when purchasing your side tables. For instance, if you have a chunky sofa you might want to go with end tables that are more open with thin legs for balance. If you have open accent chairs you’re pairing a table with, maybe go for a drum table or thicker storage table to even things out.
Do you have options that are fashionable and functional? Yep! As we just mentioned, we have storage end tables that are a great pick. Perfect for keeping electronics, remotes and more out of sight. We also have some nesting end tables that are beautiful and can be spread out throughout the room or stacked together to save space. Some even have magazine racks built right into the side for added convenience.
What about style features? Beautiful glass options, tables with scrolled bases, all-over mirrored details, styles with gorgeous hardware…you’re sure to find something you love right here.
And how about the design aesthetic—what do you have? Everything from modern to urban farmhouse to glam to traditional and more.
Do you have different materials and colors to choose from? We do. Our side tables come in wood, metal, glass, stone and marble. As far as colors go, pick from brown, black, gray, white, gold, silver, bold colors…lots!
Any other tips or tricks I should know when it comes to end tables? One tip is to make sure to keep a couple of inches between your end table and your seat. That way you can set down your drink, book, whatever you have easily. Another tip? Two matching end tables paired together can live in front of your sofa as a beautiful coffee table! You can even repurpose an end table as a nightstand making them a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to living room furniture.
How do I style my end table? Our advice? Keep it simple. A book or two, a candle, a plant or flowers and a lamp if you have space. If not, opt for a floor lamp that sits just behind your end table. It’ll add dimension and height to really complete your space. End tables tend to be on the smaller side, so you don’t want to overcrowd them.
