Function and Flair: The End Table

The end table—otherwise known as a side or drinks table—is necessary for holding a lamp, cocktail, favorite book and even the remote.

But it’s also a place (often unrealized) to add some beauty and style to your space. William Morris, forefather of the English Arts and Crafts movement, said it best: “Have nothing in your homes that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful.”

And while the holidays may not be the right time for a big furniture purchase, why not splurge on a small chair-side treat? Here to inspire you are 12 of our most useful and beautiful picks for end tables.
