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.
Displays. If you have family heirlooms or souvenirs of your world travels you can use a side table to display them in an artistic fashion. This not only showcases some of your favorite things but also adds a little artistry to the room.
We're talking about side tables. Side tables are put in a number of places in your home and are used for any and every job from holding books to lamps to drinks and anything else you decide to put on the surface. From day to day their job changes and what you expect of them changes, yet you don't give them any extra love than you do the other pieces of furniture in your home.
Because side tables are small and light, they are also easy to move around so you can use them in different places around the room or even in different rooms. That way you can go about choosing the right side table for a number of rooms, not just one. For example, a side table can give you a little extra counter space in a cramped kitchen during the holidays or offer guests a little extra space in the bathroom to refresh themselves with some nice scents, soaps or oils.
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.
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.
