Choosing the decor for a room is both exciting and nerve-wrecking when opposites attract. I think all interior designers can attest to the challenge of incorporating clashing style aesthetics. Though often overlooked, side tables encourage compromise among clients and add the desired cohesion. Before I head out to shop favorites like, Phillips Collection and Zuo Modern, I take a moment to consider the purpose of the room, how often it will be used and by whom. With that in mind, I’m off to find stylish yet functional side tables.
Log Side Table, Silver by Phillips Collection
The Log Side Table by Phillips reminds me of a lamp I used in my Artful Desert Contemporary Project. This beautiful table is a great piece for people who like to infuse nature into their decor. Each Log Side Table is cast from the trunks of real trees and is available in a variety of colors.
River Stone Side Table, Turquoise by Phillips Collection
The River Stone is definitely a conversation piece. Its brilliant lacquer finish is sure to draw the eye and complement any living space.
Trapezoid Table, Chamcha Wood by Phillips Collection
I love forward thinking pieces and this Trapezoid table has left me speechless. Natural wood is arguably one of the most popular & resilient materials for a side table. If you want to make sure it doesn’t warp over time–seal it and make sure everyone uses a coaster.
Donahue Side Table by Zuo Modern
The Donahue had me at, “Hello.” I love the color and the distressed look of the Elm Wood. It adds a timeless antique feel that will get better in time.
Holloway Side Table by Zuo Modern
Again, distressed wood and color adds the Holloway to my list of must-haves.
If space is ever an issue think glass. The Quest Side Table is a great option because it will help you fill your space without cutting on style.

These side tables prove that compromise is in the stars, even if you are from Venus and your partner is from Mars!
