An exquisite antique, a combination of hardwood and French marble with metalwork is an essential artefact for a spacious room with heavy furniture and high ceiling. A slight adherence to the quintessential, class is the keyword here.

For someone with a modern eclectic taste, machine-cut metal work is a good choice for side table design. In image one above, a traditional design is given a contemporary touch through metal and teamed with glasswork.

A simple minimalist table with a hint of excitement personifies these side tables. For adults and kids alike, these side tables can fit in easily; be it a side table by a bright chair, or a coffee table by a bean bag in the bedroom.

Is this the real life, or is it just fantasy? Give the bohemian look to your life by adding this work of art to your home. Designed from salvaged Burma teak wood, this handcrafted table  is an expression of traditional longevity, and uses traditional joinery sans any mechanical fasteners. It can brighten up the ambience, when placed beside a colourful rug and a handful of cushions.

The concluding idea for a side table is a light spectacle in metalwork. The rough finish along with intricacy in detail gives it a simple timeless feel; it becomes the perfect piece of furniture to accompany a light conversation, steaming mugs of coffee and a light drizzle outside.
