The Best Accent Table
For an accent table that combines style and function without breaking the bank, this option from Decor Therapy is a fabulous choice and is available in a variety of finishes from a traditional honey nut to a fun turquoise blue. The tabletop measures a little over a foot long, making it suitable for a few items, like your favorite beverage and book. The three-legged base is sturdy but doesn’t take up too much space, and adds an elegant flair.
We love how easy assembly is–no tools needed! Simply screw the center support into the tabletop, add the legs into their corresponding slots, then screw in one bottom piece to lock the legs in place.
If you’re tight on space, or looking for an attractive and affordable accent table, look no further.

If you’re looking for an accent table with more storage capabilities, we’re a big fan of this lovely design from Winsome. Featuring clean lines, slightly tapered legs, and classic finishes, this piece works perfectly next to a sofa in the living room or bedside with a lamp on top.
For storage, the table offers one pull out drawer and one single-shelf cabinet. Both the drawer and cabinet have a round satin nickel knob for opening, and the cabinet hinges come preinstalled on the right side of the door with a magnetic latch on the left, so unfortunately the door can’t be reversed. The shelf inside as well as the drawer has a weight capacity of 15 pounds, while the top of the table can accommodate up to 50 lbs and has the space for quite a few items if desired.
All pieces are shipped in one box and tools, hardware, and instructions are included, so while assembly is more involved compared to our top pick, as long as you closely follow the instructions, it is easy to put together.
Pro tip–if you aren’t a fan of the finishes available, the table can easily be painted to accompany your taste and decor!

Accent Table Buying Guide
An accent table can be a fun piece of furniture that adds style to your home and helps organize your life. Shopping for one should be fun too–consider the following before you make your purchase:
Size And Space
Measure the space that you are planning to put your end table before you purchase. It’s also worth measuring the furniture nearby to make sure the height and proportions will work together. Make sure you can easily grab your cup of coffee from the sofa, or reach your novel from your bed. In most cases, you are going to want a table to of equal height or slightly below your bed or the arm of your couch.
What Are You Using A Side Table For?
If you are planning to place a few simple, lightweight items on your table, you probably don’t need to worry about drawers, shelves or weight capacity. However, if you are planning to use your table for storage or to hold heavier items like large plants, do consider something with a sturdy base, built in drawers or shelves, and a heavier weight capacity.
