16 Stylish + Affordable Side Tables I Am Loving Right Now

Hi there friends! Currently I am working on a little makeover in the boys playroom. In the design process I found some incredibly stylish side tables that were also really affordable. What I love most is that these tables can easily work with any design aesthetic and can be mixed & matched with each other.

Some of you may remember I gave our playroom a makeover last year. You will be happy to know I (we) still love it but there was one piece that I added recently that has given it a whole new, added functionality. We finally got a sleeper sofa!! Yay!! Now we actually have a room dedicated for guests if/when they come visit, lol. Before, our guests had to sleep in bunk beds, I am thinking this might work a little better. With my niece getting married in October, this room’s new duality couldn’t come at a better time!

With our newest addition, the Soma Sofa Bed I realized I needed to alter my coffee table situation, 1. it was too heavy to move on the fly and 2. it was a little low. After scouring the market for a new one, I decided to go with 2 side tables instead of 1 coffee table for those exact 2 reasons. It just made more sense, they were lighter, which makes them easier to move and higher than a standard coffee table. Also, they could function better, when the bed it out they would become side tables again. You can get a sneak peek below…

  1. Jen, While large coffee tables are trendy and can pull a room together and provide an area for design vignettes, they often are not practical for everyone. Before my husband became handicapped we had a large glassed topped table ( to make the room more airy and spacious) . However one day he lost his footing and fell on it. Needless to say I immediately removed it and gave it away ( for his safety). I purchased nesting tables with wrought iron legs and wooden surface top. I nested them next to the sofa as an end table.When guests are there I spread them out in front of the sofa for their beverages and noshes. It has been over 10 years now, and even after several design updates to the room and changed furniture I love them and am still using them in lieu of the traditional coffee table.It provides me with duality of use, convenience and a more spacious look on a daily basis. I, needless to say ,agree with your choice of 2 tables.

    1. Hi Mrs. P!!! That must have been scary to say the least. I love the duality of using the smaller tables and I totally agree about the functionality. The new tables make the room feel so much more spacious! I hope you are having a great summer! Jen

  2. Good post, I personally love these colors furniture in the style of boho. Light, transparent, spacious, they do not take up much space and are so delicate. From this statement I prefer No. 4
