We have talked about sideboards, consoles, and even rugs, here at Mid-Century Furniture. But a house is much more than that, and there are two special pieces that can be super versatile and be used to multiple different ends. Today we are sharing with you 5 tips on how to use mid-century modern side tables, as well as center tables that, contrary to popular belief, are not to be used only in front of your sofa… But we’ll get there. Let’s share some knowledge!
Using Side Tables As Support
Probably one of the most classic uses of side tables is using it as a support to your sofa or armchair. Side tables were pretty much invented to be used as a place to store those everyday objects we need whenever we’re relaxing in our living rooms: a book, a magazine, a nice plant vase or even just the remote. But seeing as it is a piece that you see all the time, make sure to choose a versatile side table that goes well with multiple styles. The one in the photo is Miller by Essential Home.
Use Them As Additional Stools
There are multiple side tables that can be used as additional seating places. Botti side table by Essential Home – which can be seen in the photo above – is a perfect example of that. Its minimalist style makes it a great side table, as well as a stylish art-deco inspired stool.
Use Them As Decorative Pieces
Some side tables are so well designed and thought that they can resemble true art pieces. That is the case with Vinicius side table, a wonderful marble piece with a gold plated detail in the middle. Truly worth putting on display!
They Can Be Great Bar/Coffee Tables
