What are the different types of side table ?

There are different types of side tables on the market that differ in shape and material. Each type has its advantages.

For every room, there is a suitable side table shape. For large rooms with lots of space, the round side table in the middle of the room will express conviviality. The furniture will be placed all around to invite your guests to settle in and make themselves comfortable. For example, you can choose the Bam model by Calligaris, the colorful Soda model by Miniforms, the Lotus by Sangiacomo or the Moca by A.L.F Dafrè.

The square side table gives a masculine look to the room. Although it can be adapted to different organizations of space, it is best suited to large rooms so as not to overload the decoration. However, there are smaller models like the Petra by Tema Home, the Thin model by Calligaris, or why the Katrine nesting tables by Actona.

The rectangular side table is also suitable for large rooms because it can be imposing by its size. This will bring even more cachet to the room. We have for example the Around coffee table by Calligaris, the Gleam by Tema Home, or the Kobè by A.L.F Dafrè.

When it comes to materials, metal or stainless steel side tables will bring character to the room. Sturdy, these side tables are made to last and enhance the contemporary style decorations. TTo keep a harmony in the decoration, it is advisable to find the same material in the other furniture of the house. The wooden side table are ecological because they are renewable. It brings cachet to your interior. However, they require good regular maintenance. The glass side table brings an airy and modern feel to the room. It will also give the feeling of having a more spacious room. They also have the advantage of being easy to maintain. Finally, the marble side table will bring elegance to your living room.

How to choose your side table?

The side table should not blend in with your decor, it should assert your style. If you have chosen a contemporary decor in neutral tones, a side table will bring even more modernity. Designers are now offering design side tables with modern and colorful materials. Let yourself be tempted by a side table that will stand out. We suggest for example the Tip Top model from Kartel that you can have in red or blue colors.

In a Scandinavian decoration, solid wood side tables are the ideal. This type of decoration invites a warm and cozy atmosphere. This is the case, for example, of the Mascotte coffee table by Connubia, which is extendable and adjustable in height. It can be transformed into a dining table for 6 people and can be moved easily thanks to two rubber wheels.

Glass or metal models will be the best for those who like design in interior decoration. Light and multifunctional, they are also suitable for small spaces or minimalist decoration.
