A modern side table is designed with both form and function in mind. New styles incorporate highly functional features, such as extra hidden storage space, with the beauty and simplicity expected in modern and contemporary designs. There is a wide range of table selections to choose from, each with a unique flair of style.
Modern families demand the latest styles and supreme efficiency from their furniture. A modern side table should meet the needs of the people who use it. Some living rooms are for formal gatherings, while others serve as a primary household hangout. End tables can serve multiple purposes in the living room, den or home theater. Lightweight end tables are easy to slide around to double as snack tables, book stands and much more. Look for selections by York and others.
Matching coffee table and end table sets give the room a put-together look and open up even more options for enjoying the living room or home entertainment room. Use the coffee table for serving snacks and meals during sporting events and home movies. A well-chosen coffee table also makes an excellent surface for playing board games and card games. Look for coffee and cocktail tables by Stefano and others.
A simpler type of modern side table is the magazine rack. These handy tables offer an angled shelf on the bottom for neatly storing magazines and papers. A smaller end table also leaves enough room for a floor lamp to illuminate reading areas. Sofa tables are great to hold items behind a couch or sofa. A small end table with a magazine or book holder seated next to an overstuffed easy chair is an inviting place to enjoy rainy afternoons. Look for end tables with handy book and magazine storage by Kanson and others.
Table collections are a great way to get all the end tables and coffee tables needed for the room in one nicely matched package. Table collections are often less expensive than purchasing all the tables separately. Many tables have hidden storage compartments for keeping things neat and tidy looking. Look for chest-style tables and nestling tables with storage areas by Elation and others.
