The Tana Stool from Article is made from Teak and can work as either a table or stool…even outside! This would work perfectly in a boho and California cool vibe. If used outside, the “Tana’s teak will develop a beautiful silver patina over time, and small cracks will appear in line with the wood’s natural grain. These cracks are perfectly normal and bring a delicate wabi-sabi to the Tana’s strong design.” Ok so I am not going to lie, I had to look up “wabi-sabi” and here is what the internet said “In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete.” I love that.

I am totally digging the Ephratah 2 Piece Nesting Tables from Brayden studio available on Wayfair.com.  These nesting tables are made from reclaimed Elmwood in a lovely pattern with metal legs. Nesting tables are a great option if you are tight on space. Keep them together on a day to day basis and pull out the bottom table when guests come over for additional surface for drinks and apps.

We hope this list of end tables has been helpful! There a plenty of great options for under a $200 price point and even more in the $200-$300 range.

Before buying your end table, ensure it is the right dimensions for your couch or chair.  Wayfair actually offers a helpful guide and I’ve included their guidance below:

Height

End tables should be within two inches of a sofa’s arm height. For example, if the sofa’s arm is 22″ tall, a proper end table can be anywhere from 20″ – 24″ tall. Can’t find the right end table height for your room? Go shorter rather than taller for a more comfortable experience.

Width

The average width of an end table is between 16″ – 22″. When deciding on a side table, be sure yours has a surface wide enough to hold any desired items, like books, plants, or lamps. Additionally, leave a few inches between the end table and sofa.

Depth

The ideal depth of an end table is equal to the depth of the sofa or chair it’s placed next to. It should not exceed the sofa’s depth.

Tip

The bottom of a lampshade shouldn’t fall higher than eye level when you’re seated on the sofa or chair that’s placed next to the lamp
