If there’s one piece of furniture in the house that’s under apprecitated, it’s the side table. In fact most homes don’t have enough. And if you’ve ever sat on a sofa with nowhere to put your cup of tea you’ll know exactly what I mean. And while it’s true that they are most handy at the side of an armchair (or sofa), they have so many other uses around the house. They double up as bedside tables for a start. They can be used as occasional tables in the kitchen for drinks, in the office for keeping the overspill tidy, in the hall beside a bench, and of course, in the garden too. In fact anywhere there is a chair, there is a use for a side table. But they don’t have to be just work-horses. The humble side table can work just as hard as additional storage, or even as a statement piece that adds drama or missing texture to a room.
