Bring designer edge to your home and consider the little details that work together to achieve a professional look in your living room. Here we share some expert advice to help you decorate your side tables like a true designer.
Side tables are often tricky furniture items to style. They are usually small and just a few items can create a look of clutter and chaos. Be sure to keep it simple and let your side table work best for you, in any room.
First, consider the style and size of your chosen side table, before you think about the styling. Your choice of side table will also help to determine the look and ambience of your space. SHF offers a wide selection of bespoke side tables to suit various styles. Available in different shapes and finishes, they are sure to have the right choice for your home.Our favourites include the beautifully curved Alex Side Table – available in a striking chocolate finish with a base in metal and aluminium. For more of a traditional look with designer appeal, the Algardi range of side tables from SHF boasts a classic style that’s beautifully ornate. The Algardi Boca, Rida and Vaso side tables showcase a classic brass and brown finish with striking marble tops for added elegance.
Nesting tables are also a great option in an open plan living space. Simply store together and separate the tables as needed to accommodate guests. SHF boasts a range of nesting tables that are functional and elegant. Choose from the Kaska Nest White Side Tables, Round Nest Side Table or Washer Side Table. Each offers unique appeal in a different finish and style.
Here’s what you need to know when styling your perfect side table:
- Don’t be afraid to keep it minimal – a simple vase, candle or book is all it needs to style a clean, sleek and minimalist side table.
- Don’t overdo it, unless that is the look you’re hoping to achieve. If you have an eclectic layout in your home, then certainly, go for an elaborate collection of decor accents, but if not – less is more.
- Group items according to colour, finish or style. A trio of glass vases may work wonderfully to enhance the style of your side table. Similarly, a group of ceramics, frames or even candles in varying heights can help to achieve symmetry and style.
