Coffee and side tables are not only practical but can also help to balance a room, create zones and make the space feel more cosy and welcoming.
Measure the floor area, taking into account other furniture and any rugs and think about the height of the table and surrounding items.
If your space is limited, a nest of tables is an ideal solution, as you can stack them at the side of the room when not in use.
Look for added storage such as shelves beneath the tabletop or drawers on
either side of the table.
