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.

But you don't have to purchase them this way. Conceivably, each table can be different, if they have the same general design elements, the same palette of color or stain, the same architectural lines, etc. If you have two end tables in the room, you do want these to match, but they can contrast with the coffee table.
