Side tables can come in any shape, style, or design. It can be made from wood, glass, metal, and iron and stone! I personally prefer to use oak because it is a very attractive wood and color; this is almost impossible to argue with. Because of this, it is easily incorporated into a wide variety of homes decorated in a great many different styles. Some types of side tables are harder to match with existing furniture, but this rarely the case with oak. Suitable for both rustic homey décor and upscale, chic décor, an oak side table is attractive in almost every setting.
Choosing the right side table is easy, largely because there are so many choices out on the market these days. Online retailers offer literally hundreds of choices, from fairly traditional models to themed pieces that look as if they have been shipped in from the four corners of the world or were brought back during your travels to exotic lands. Because they don't have to necessarily match the rest of your furnishings, they can have their own personality. When choosing the right side table, you need to be aware of its scale compared to the other pieces of the room. You want it to complement the room, not overwhelm it.
Plant stands. If you want to add greenery to your room, you could start by choosing the right side table that can hold several plants or flower arrangements to add color, freshness and a little bit of oxygen to your room.
Interiors are not all about looks, they're about people. Designers use furniture and accessories to give people what they need, functionally, artistically and emotionally. Choosing the right table, and accenting with the right plants and flowers, are important parts of that process.
Dining tables and coffee tables most certainly have their place in the world. When you're sitting down to a meal, when your child is doing homework, wooden side tables won't do. They're too small. But it's their small size that makes them such lifesavers for other things when you don't have room for something bigger. Ideally, you should use wooden side tables in conjunction with your other indoor or patio furniture as an accompaniment, or wingman, say, to your regular table.
This is also one way to narrow down your search and get your hands on the right type of table for your living room. There are a number of modern style side tables and some of them are very much affordable. There are also chances that you can try searching for a used table or a resale table as these might be available at almost half the original price.
