Side & Occasional View All Tables
Side or Occasional Tables
An antique side or occasional table can go just about anywhere and they are incredibly functional. Put one next to your favorite wing chair set with a glass of wine or a pair at ends of your sofa for lamps or as a small coffee table for those shelter magazines you been meaning to read.
Tables of different heights work very well next to an arm chair. Susan Silver Antiques has an Italian Baroque style walnut table that would work perfectly for that. Side tables can also be different shapes. A corner table looks great between two chairs or a sofa and a chair set at a v-angle or ninety degrees.
A Georgian mahogany round tripod pedestal revolving tea table makes a perfect table to go between two Sheraton chairs. A set of Chinese red lacquered nesting quarteto tables make the perfect solution for guests to have their own table for hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Think of the TV tables of the 1950’s! They fit one under the other and so take up very little space. Thomas Sheraton was probably the first cabinetmaker to produce such stylish and charming tables.
Chinese low tables also are a good solution between two chairs. A long side table can also act as a sofa table. Unusual small specimen wood tables fit the bill as an additional side table.
