Space. The main draw to wooden side tables and end tables is how much space they save in living rooms and on patios. Dining tables, dinette tables and coffee tables are all useful if you require more space to enjoy a meal, get work done, put your feet up, etc. But often times we don't need so much space, just a spot to store a drink, or a TV remote. Large tables are the kiss of death for small areas and apartment style living. They make spaces look smaller, and you've probably bumped your shin more than once trying to get around it. Maximize your counter space with bar seating and consider doing away with the full-sized table all together. Wooden side tables will really open up a room.
Antique Mahogany side table is good if you like collecting them for their style and historical value. There are a number of modern sets that simply might not be offering you the style and charm of antique piece. Most modern pieces offer with a design that is sleek and matches very well with the home decor. You also have to keep in mind that a good antique can always be very much expensive and so most people purchase them as a type of investment.
Don't spend time trying to 'match' finishes. Just like a great outfit, a great room isn't made from furniture that matches, but from furniture that blends and contrasts. A single item, in a style different from the rest, can make an excellent focal point to a room, especially when the item is beautifully made.
Location. The second bonus is that you can put wooden side tables just about anywhere. The living and family rooms are the most common spot, but end tables can be used in the bedroom as nightstand, by the front door as a key holder and in the bathroom as an extra space to store soaps and hand towels. Then there's the outside. Wooden side tables are often made from hardwoods and other durable lumbers that are suitable to the outdoors. Many of these woods are also treated with protective varnishes and oils. You can place these tables on the front porch, back patio or in the garden. Want somewhere to set your lemonade as you watch the sunset from your deck? Voila. The versatility of these tables goes hand in hand with their many locations.
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.
Finally, you should regularly polish and wax these tables to keep them looking new.
