Side tables

Side tables are so much more than a sidekick to your sofa. Second to the coffee table? Hardly. Whether you opt for one with a shelf for storage or a more straightforward design, it'll help keep everything you need for your next movie night or reading marathon close at hand.

They might be small in size, but side tables can have a big impact on convenience and décor.

A classic glass style can give your living room or bedroom a glamorous edge. While more modern side tables with intricate designs can tie a contemporary room together.

As well as providing plenty of occasional table space, a nest of tables can be easily popped away when you’re not using them. Either way, you’ll have a handy spot to place a drink, keep a book and store the remote.

Be space efficient with the side table

Want to make the most of your space? A simple side table can also double up as storage. Choose a style with a drawer or cupboard for a convenient place to keep extra pillows or blankets for cold winter evenings. Or if you’ve got a guest spending the night, you can use a side table to store sheets right by the sofa bed.

If you think you’ll only use a side table now and again, go for an occasional table instead. These handy tables fold up and store easily, ready to be used or be put away as needed.

Adjustable storage with a nest of tables

For occasions when you need to adjust your storage on a whim, a nest of tables is the perfect solution. Simply pop out an extra table to hold another bowl of snacks and pop it away again just as easily once movie night is over.
