Without a table near a couch or chair, a sitting room looks incomplete. Having a proper surface to put something down on is fundamental to living well. This need was lampooned perfectly by Edina Monsoon—the boozy but determined fashion P.R. agent played by Jennifer Saunders in the BBC series Absolutely Fabulous. She implored the need to her assistant begging, “Surfaces, surfaces, darling. I need surfaces.” In the living room or any room, a side table or end table delivers a convenient place to put things and what’s more,  a chance to add personal style to the space. Nest Casa culls the ultimate list of side tables and end tables to help you find the perfect spot to put things on.

Editor's Picks:

End tables are generally meant to flank a couch on either side (generally both) and are made at the same height as a standard couch. Because of this, they often come in sets. Side tables are more flexible in use and can vary in height. Usually, one is enough! It all depends on the look you are going for.

Round Side Tables

Nest Casa's selection of round styles run the gamut in materials, from round and stool-like end tables to rattan and straw versions. Contemporary styles read well in marble and chrome, while stone and metal offer a minimalist look when it comes to side and end tables.
