Remember the days when a side table was relegated to the side of the couch or an armchair? Now, many Australian homeowners are taking tips from interior designers and making their side tables centrepieces for their rooms. Browse our collection to find the next stand-out piece for your space.
You can use side tables in innovative ways, including:
• In pairings and groupings — You can group relatively small side tables together. Try placing two side-by-side. Three can make a sort of three-leafed clover design, and you can put four small square tables together to make one big square. The best part of groupings is you can change them up whenever you feel like it. This maximises the opportunities you have to be bold and have fun with the side tables you buy!
• Placed strategically around a room — Do you want the benefit of a coffee table, but without sacrificing that much space? You can place side tables strategically in front of sitting areas, such as sofas, loveseats and chairs. Not only will you have a place to put down drinks, reading materials and more, but you also can move them out of the way when you don’t need them.
• Positioned in corners — With the right side table, you could turn a corner into a functional space. Put a lamp on a corner side table to add light to a dim room. Or, use it to showcase a pretty vase. Maybe you want to showcase some artwork or family photos.
You can also use your side table in your bedroom. For example, if you have a large bedroom, you can create a special, quiet and private conversational area with two chairs and a side table between. This would make a great place to enjoy a hot cup of tea and biscuit in the evening before bedtime. You can also use side tables in the bedroom instead of traditional nightstands.
