End Tables | Side Tables
End tables, also referred to as side tables, are small tables designed to function as flexible and convenient flat surfaces that are typically paired to the sides of seating such as couches and armchairs. Often used in living rooms as practical tables for holding glasses, remote controls, books and other items, side tables come in a diverse range of styles, shapes, and materials designed to work well with your furniture decor. Because of the variety of styles and storage options available in the end table family, special considerations should be given to how and where the table will best store items for easy reach.
End tables should have roughly the same height of the arms of the nearest sofa or chair. Chairs have common arm heights in the range of 24”-32” (61-81 cm) and end tables are designed with a similar range of heights to match.
The choice of the correct end table for your space should be based on a number of factors including finding a height that matches the arm height of your chairs, a surface size appropriate to your storage and everyday usage needs, and a style that works well with your room aesthetic.
Side tables are convenient tables that are typically placed at the ends of a sofa, armchair, lounge chair, and other living room chairs. Side tables are surfaces used to hold table lamps, drinks, remote controls, books, and other everyday living room items.
