We believe home design should be stylish and distinctive. If you are looking to bring sculptural lines and earthy textures to a moody space or refine a living room with a clean-lined modern accent, side tables can finish a look with a distinctive touch. Here at Lulu and Georgia, our thoughtfully-curated end table collection is perfect for your home, beautifully blending form and function.
Side tables offer visual impact and practical appeal in a compact profile, making them a versatile accent with tons of styling potential. Whether placed for balance as a small end table at the edge of a sofa, styled as a statement piece with an occasional chair, or furnishing an outdoor space for a refined touch, side tables come in various designs fashioned with dynamic silhouettes from unique materials. It is helpful to consider how the elements of an end table sit in conversation with the whole aesthetic of a space and what those individual elements can do to evolve a room’s feel.
Not sure what style fits your aesthetic and home best when searching for living room side tables? Don’t worry; we have got you covered. Check out a few tips below on inspiration when browsing, styling tips, and explore our well-curated line of designs.
Consider Your Space
When seeking a balanced layout, even a small end table can have a huge impact on the look and feel of a space. By weighing the design elements at play in a room, you can decide what pieces are working toward a central theme and which pieces are used to contrast and augment that theme. That way, you can know just what is needed for your space. From living room side tables to small end tables for an entryway or hallway, every design offers unique potential to set off a space with a stunning finish.
When browsing side tables or end tables for a living room, you will often be working around a few pieces of furniture like a sofa or console table. For a tailored look, think about pairing a few pieces from the same collection. We love the Margot Collection for a casual coastal feel with its rich natural textures and woven cane paneling. Living room end tables can also bring intentional tonal contrast to a space. A sleek silhouette made from a dense material like fiber cement or marble can help ground an airy room with a solid presence. Traditional design notes, like a shelf, can lend side tables a living room practicality and bring timeless sophistication into a transitional aesthetic.
In an entryway or hallway, small end tables or side tables can be a compact, functional alternative to a console table. Whether a setting place for some thoughtful décor or a minimal accent serving as a convenient dropping place in the entryway, end tables are the perfect practical touch to elevate your style throughout the home.
Think Textural Contrast
Layering textures is essential to adding tactile and visual appeal to your home. From rough-hewn bare wood end tables to glassy marble statement pieces, end tables for living room spaces or hallways are a great way to bring texture into a look. Think about how different textures can work off each other to elevate a space.
A rare pairing of earthy and modern tones mark this versatile material. Whether polished or given a rough finish, concrete has a distinctive texture often set off with a sculptural profile. Many concrete end tables can also be styled outside.
Glass is often used to bring surfaces into a smaller area while keeping the space light and open. A thoughtful design with glass can do so much more. Its smooth glossy touch is a refined accent that can reflect and vitalize other materials for a striking effect.
Metal side tables offer a sleek, modern aspect. Depending on the finish, they can also reflect subtle industrial notes or elevate opulent tones in a space. Check out our Nayla Nesting Side Tables for an airy design with a clean-lined metal base.
Rattan + Cane
Whether you are looking for something vintage-inspired or coastal and breezy, rattan and cane furniture is an ever-fresh way to bring natural artisanal texture into a room. Pair it with other rattan furniture and smooth upholstered pieces for timeless casual elegance.
Stone can be a super dynamic material for your space. For a polished look, marble is a luxe touch with timeless appeal. Rough-hewn stone surfaces can ground a room with moody tones. Stone end tables often come with a powerful visual weight making them brilliant statement pieces.
Wood end tables can be the perfect complement for a warm space full of cozy touches and soft natural layers. Wood can also offer warm minimalism with a clean pared-down profile. Solid-wood living room end tables are the perfect organic touch to tie a room together.
In addition to layering materials, consider nesting designs to add a dynamic visual dimension with side tables. Living room spaces, entryways, and hallways all benefit from intentional touches of texture.
Whichever way you style them, remember that your side tables allow you the flexibility to showcase your aesthetic. It allows you a chance to express your unique vision with nuanced designs. Side tables bring texture and elegance into a space with a small and functional accent piece. Put your attention to detail on full display with the perfect end table.
