occassional tables

I love to use small side tables when accessorizing a room for many different reasons. First of all, its convenient to set things on (ie magazines, drinks, channel changer etc.). Second, it helps to anchor a space and create seating arrangements away from your sofa and coffee table combination. By placing 2 chairs and a small drinks table in a corner, you instantly create another area where people can gather.

Le Lion Stand (Bronze) - Baker The Jacques Garcia Collection
Le Lion by Jacquez Garcia for Baker. A funky and fun, yet functional little sculpture piece!

Antique reproduction column sidetable with antiqued mirror top. This is a perfect table to place between two chairs as a drinks table beause of its height and scale. I also love that it's not your typical 4 legged table.
This Tree Stump by Ironies functions fabulously between these chairs, bringing in an organic element to warm up the space.
Another favorite for its style and scale. This resin covered sidetable by Oly would dress up any pair of chairs.

This picture from Elle Decor shows how they've created a seating area by using two tub chairs with Moroccan themed side-tables mirroring each other. Rather than placing a lower table between the two chairs, the designer chose to give each person their own little table. I think its a great spin on a typical seating arrangement.
