Many people might refer to side tables as end tables, but they all do the same thing. Provide someone seated in a chair or sofa with a spot to place anything from a drink to a book. However, these tables can also work in an array of other settings, and not necessarily remain in the "side" lines. They could serve as hall tables, display pedestals, and even stools. This Burke Décor gallery of tables provides you with hundreds of options, styles and designs. Each product page also points you towards similar or matching designs that can help you make the best design decisions.
Naturally, it can be difficult to know just where to begin when choosing side tables, and the good news is that you don't have to always select a style that is an identical match to other tables or furnishings in a room. For example, if you look at some of the latest trends in tables from this Burke Décor gallery you would see that Asian-inspired, ceramic garden stools are some of the hottest choices in side tables. These add burst of color, global décor and will serve as the perfect end table, plant stand, or spare seat.
Other popular options you might find in this Burke Décor selection include multi-tasking tables like a magazine table in walnut and inspired by European styles. There are multitasking tables such as the Flip Around tables from Menu which can serve as a stool, a table and even a tray table. Natural materials are also a popular option in side tables with everything from sea grass to rattan forming the base for a decorative and yet perfectly functional side table.
Essentially, there are much less rigid design rules where your side or end tables are concerned. You can opt to use something as timeless and elegant as a magazine table with leather bucket and marble top or you can opt for a totally unique and modern piece. There are also many sets of tables that let you stack them out of the way when not in use and then slide out and use for serving drinks or multiple guests at once. A popular option comes from Lazy Susan and features natural teak table tops mounted on strong steel bases.
As you can see, there are countless styles of side or end tables available in this Burke Décor selection and you are sure to find many for your decorating needs.
