Antique side tables

Antique side tables are tables with small surface areas that are designed to put the essentials within easy reach when you’re sitting on the sofa or lying in bed. For this reason, height is one of the most important considerations when you’re choosing a side table. Ideally, you want the top of your side table to sit three inches below the arm of your chair.

In addition to utility, side tables can also serve a decorative purpose. They’re a fantastic way to display antique table lamps and little antique collectibles. You could also display photographs in picture frames from a similar era on your antique side table. Equally, some of our side tables are beautifully decorative so you may not want to cover up the original designs.

What are antique small tables?

Antique small tables are just antique side tables by another name; side tables that were made more than 100 years ago. You can search our selection of antique small side tables by size using our advanced search feature. Measure the sofa or bed you want the table to sit beside so you know how tall your side table should be. Side tables should not exceed the height of the sofa arm, nor should they be any shorter than the sofa cushion. Tables outside of these dimensions are more difficult to use, and may not achieve the look you’re going for.

Antique brass side tables

Make a bold statement in your living room by picking an antique brass side table to put next to your sofa. Pair it with a more modern sofa to create a wonderful clash of antiquity and modernity. To keep the room from looking too clinical, add in a trio of cosy furnishings - rugs, cushions, and throws. Mix and match old and new to add to this effect – but be mindful of colours. Cooler colours go better with brass, particularly shades of blue, green, and teal.
