Side Tables

What better way to say come and sit and put your drink here, or here is a magazine or remote, depending on what you feel like doing, than with an appropriate side table? What your round side table says to your guests, although unspoken, reveals the homey feel and function of a living room, sitting room or family room. Whatever style story these tables are conveying, they are always a welcoming and necessary addition to your living room.

We have many styles available at west elm, from functional C-side tables and classic tables made from glass, metal and wood, to signature pieces like our natural log stump or papier-mache drum tables. Side tables can take center stage or a supporting role in your design scheme but all make a welcome addition to any room. A matching set of round side tables are elegant as bedside tables while a larger modern side table in the entryway can be a catch-all for keys and mail. A set of recliner chairs isn’t entirely functional without an end table between conveniently holding a table lamp, remotes and refreshments. Often, side tables are thought of as objects that are on the side of other furniture in living rooms. However, they offer beautiful versatility by themselves or to other rooms in the house, from office to bedroom.

Our side tables come in many shapes and sizes. The corner travertine nesting tables make usable space out of underused corners of a room. Because nesting tables fit inside each other, they are a small space solution that offers unlimited potential for use. When not nesting, their hollow base is a nice nook to provide a little extra storage space

A pair of leather chairs alongside a modular tripod side table is at home in the living room, but they also make for a cozy reading nook, lounging spot or as a perfect perch for morning coffee in front of a window. Eat al fresco by celebrating the weather and the fact some of our reclaimed wood, metal and glass side tables are suitable outside. A side table is ideal for the patio or poolside. Look for one with an iconic shape and lightweight aluminum durability that makes it easy to move from one place to another, inside or out, wherever it is needed. A gem-cut aluminum side table, with its faceted sides brilliantly clad in a brass, silver or copper finish, can be a striking display for art pieces, baskets or photos. You can even stack them up end to end for a dramatic dioramic display all by themselves.
