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.
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.
Once you have made the decision to get on you need to look around at your existing furniture and think of what finish would work in the room. You can get a well crafted table in many different finishes such as cherry, oak, cedar, pine, also available in a wide variety of metal finishes. You want something a little more traditional try looking at some of the wood finishes. So that's not quite your style take a look at maybe something a little more elegant like a glass top round accent table.
A great idea might be for you take some pictures along with you of the existing décor in your room. This should help you in finding the perfect match to your style and personality. You want to get something that will accent your belongings not take control over them. Keeping with the same basic theme is the way to go.
A side table is neither a coffee table nor an end table. Rather, it is a table that can be distinct in an of itself, allowing you to stray from the status quo of a room and add a little panache of personality that is all your own.
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.
