In a lot of interiors, side tables wind up being a bit of an afterthought. But not these tables. They may be little, but these tiny tables will command lots of attention. Here are 10 side and end tables guaranteed to steal the show.
Above: This teak and resin side table looks like a giant amethyst crystal, and you guys know how much I love rocks. I could almost justify the price tag for this museum-worthy specimen. Almost. Espresso and Clear Cracked Resin 18" Cube, $4,500 from The Line.
Speaking of rocks... I'm in love with this line of tables by McCollin Bryan, which look to me like giant gems suspended in midair. Starting at € 3140 from The Apartment.
I'm a sucker for marble, and also for this table. It's artistically named 'Affordances No. 1a' and artistcally priced at $2,500. From Matter.
This shimmering multicolored glass table (the colors change depending on your perspective!) leaped straight out of the late 80s and into my heart. $2,295 from abc carpet & home.
These little tables are playful, and colorful, and fun. Starting at $2,095 from Urbanspace Interiors.
I have been obsessed with the shuffle table for some time. It's like a piece of furniture that is also a giant toy — the different 'beads' can be re-configured along the spindle however you like, creating a huge variety of combinations. $739 from the Danish Design Store.
£370.00 from Haus London
$495 from Patrick Cain Designs
This side table is a wonderful synthesis — very beautiful and very clever. Storage never looked so good. Sling side table, $249 from CB2.
Finally (I've been counting down in price, if you haven't noticed), there's these little beauties. You can tessellate them together to make a coffee table, but they're equally beautiful on their own. Hex side tables, $179 each from West Elm.
