We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive. Whether creating a backyard oasis or revitalizing a small terrace lounge, side tables are crucial to bringing comfort and beauty to your outdoor design. At Lulu and Georgia, our thoughtfully curated line of indoor/outdoor accent tables is perfect for your home, beautifully blending form and function.
From pool decks to patios, side tables are an underrated essential. Without those small grounding touches, outdoor areas can feel like an afterthought, sitting vacant on even the most pleasant days. By selecting practical elements that reflect your style, you can make them a natural extension of your living space, embracing an indoor-outdoor design. From simple outdoor end tables to that fiberstone drum table you've been eyeing, we have pieces that offer durability, style and the perfect functional addition to seasonal and year-round installations.
Not sure what design fits your home best when shopping for outdoor side tables? Don't worry; we have you covered. Check out a few tips below for inspiration and practical styling advice as you shop our curated line of outdoor lounge furniture.
Choosing an Outdoor Accent Table for Your Space
When shopping outdoor side tables, we want to weigh aesthetic choices against practical considerations. The right patio accent table or outdoor end tables is the finishing touch to a cohesive space. This handy piece can serve multiple purposes, from holding your beverage while you recline on a chaise lounge to showcasing a potted plant for a touch of green that ties into the natural surroundings. Outdoor decor is constantly evolving as designers move us beyond tailored patio sets into more personal outdoor curations. That said, finding the perfect elements can take more thought and consideration. As with anything, the perfect side table is the one that is perfect in your space. To simplify it, we like to think in terms of material, scale, and purpose.
Does this piece echo the materiality of your outdoor sofa or chairs—or does it bring a fresh contrast to the mix? Looking for a small-space solution? A small outdoor table can provide a crucial tabletop if you don't have room for a coffee table or a larger conversational lounge—another option for increasing surface space while keeping a dynamic layout is a nesting coffee table like this Kallia Indoor / Outdoor Nesting Side Table. Is this a permanent fixture, or do you want something more versatile? More than most outdoor elements, indoor/outdoor accent tables offer true flexibility in placement. With its pared-down waterfall design, this Gin Indoor / Outdoor Side Table can style as a minimalist nightstand as it does, bringing industrial texture outdoors. Anytime you start running out of inspiration or feel overwhelmed by options, return to the basics—what material would be good, what scale do I need, and how will it be used?
Creating Impact with An Outdoor Side Table
Finding a side table that serves your functional needs is key—but so is finding one that echoes and elevates your signature style. Even if you're constantly evolving your space or like to keep things casual and collected—we want to keep in mind the impact of the table on your aesthetic as a whole. As you shop, picture the piece in your space—what does this table bring to the mix? Here are some ideas to get you started.
Looking for that refining touch for a timeless curation? Go for something sculptural made from concrete or fiberstone to help the space feel more established. An outdoor drum table like our Dominic Indoor / Outdoor Side Table nods to classic architecture with a chic and modern feel.
From a farmhouse porch to something more coastal and grounded, a small outdoor table is a great way to season your look with some rustic texture. Stick to resilient woods like teak with rough-hewn constructions and light or warm finishes that showcase the grain.
We love bringing industrial elements outdoors. Something about the raw elegance of the materials and stark silhouettes really pop in natural setting. Whether it's polished concrete or textural metal, a patio accent table is the perfect way to bring an industrial note in while keeping your look balanced and understated.
One of the ways you can create a more seamless transition between interior and exterior spaces is to style organic touches in your decor—but it can also help to bring luxe touches outdoors. A marble-top design like this Foley Indoor / Outdoor Side Table or a terrazzo patio side table can instantly elevate a poolside lounge.
However you style it, remember that outdoor accent tables and side tables allow you the flexibility to showcase your design aesthetic. Whether upgrading your terrace or taking on a bigger project, finding outdoor elements for your look is about blending functional appeal with a personal touch.
