Finding the Right tables for You

The right vintage, new or antique tables can help make any space in your home stand out.

Over the years, the variety of tables available to us, as well as our specific needs for said tables, has broadened. Today, with all manner of these must-have furnishings differing in shape, material and style, any dining room table can shine just as brightly as the guests who gather around it.

Remember, when shopping for a dining table, it must fit your dining area, and you need to account for space around the table too — think outside the box, as an oval dining table may work for tighter spaces. Alternatively, if you’ve got the room, a Regency-style dining table can elevate any formal occasion at mealtime.

Innovative furniture makers and designers have also redefined what a table can be. Whether it’s an unconventional Ping-Pong table, a brass side table to display your treasured collectibles or a Louis Vuitton steamer trunk to add an air of nostalgia to your loft, your table can say a lot about you.

The visionary work of French designer Xavier Lavergne, for example, includes tables that draw on the forms of celestial bodies as often as they do aquatic creatures or fossils. Elsewhere, Italian architect Gae Aulenti, who looked to Roman architecture in crafting her stately Jumbo coffee table, created clever glass-topped mobile coffee tables that move on bicycle tires or sculpted wood wheels for Fontana Arte

Coffee and cocktail tables can serve as a room’s centerpiece with attention-grabbing details and colors. Glass varieties will keep your hardwood flooring and dazzling area rugs on display, while a marble or stone coffee table in a modern interior can showcase your prized art books and decorative objects. A unique vintage desk or writing table can bring sophistication and even a bit of spice to your work life. 

No matter your desired form or function, a quality table for your living space is a sound investment. On 1stDibs, browse a collection of vintage, new and antique bedside tables, mid-century end tables and more .

Questions About Antique End Tables
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    End tables are small tables that sit beside a larger piece of furniture. The height of an end table is generally that of an arm of a chair.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    End tables typically hold lamps, coasters and other items to keep them within easy reach from the sofa or chair they are next to.

  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 3, 2024
    How high end tables are varies. Most pieces are 18 to 24 inches tall. To ensure easy access to the tabletop from a sofa or chair, choose a table that is within 2 inches of the height of its arm. For example, if your sofa's arm is 20 inches tall, you could choose a table between 18 and 22 inches in height. Shop a wide range of end tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2024
    Yes, end tables are generally taller than coffee tables.

    The term “end table” is frequently used interchangeably with “coffee table,” and while these two furnishings have much in common, each table type offers its own distinctive benefits in your space.

    Your end table is likely going to stand as tall as the arms of your sofa, and its depth will match the seating. These attributes allow for tucking the table neatly at the end of your sofa in order to provide an elevated surface between your seating and the wall. End tables are accent pieces — they’re a close cousin to side tables, but side tables, not unlike the show-stealing low-profile coffee table, are intended to be positioned prominently and have more to do with the flow and design of a room than an end table, which does a great job but does it out of the way of everything else.

    Find all kinds of antique and vintage tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    There are two differences between end tables and side tables: function and size. Typically, end tables go beside a chair or at opposite ends of a sofa and have smaller tabletops, while side tables go toward the sides of seating areas or against walls and feature a larger surface area. However, many people use the words side and end tables interchangeably, so these differences may not always apply. On 1stDibs, shop a variety of end and side tables.
  • 1stDibs ExpertSeptember 25, 2019

    An end table should be within two inches as high as the chair or sofa it stands next to and equal in depth.

  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    Bedroom end tables are often called nightstands if they have drawers or cabinet doors included in their designs. Open pieces without built-in storage are sometimes referred to as bedside tables. Shop a collection of nightstands and bedside tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    You can use a number of things in place of an end table. Place a stool, chest, trunk, barrel or crate beside your sofa or chair, or use a bar cart or freestanding tray to rest a lamp and other objects on. If there is a wall nearby, you can even install a floating shelf within arm’s reach. On 1stDibs, shop a collection of living room furniture.
  • 1stDibs ExpertJune 15, 2023
    The best height for an end table depends on the sofa or chair beside it. Generally, an end table should be around 3 inches shorter than the arm. A table that is the same height as the arm may also work, but avoid buying tables that are higher than the arm because taller pieces could make it hard to reach objects stored on the tabletops. On 1stDibs, shop a range of end tables.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    End tables and coffee tables do not need to match. Nevertheless it can be nice to have a similar color scheme or have one set of end tables match and perhaps have the coffee table match a TV stand.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    Generally, end tables should be about the same height as the arm of your couch. When the tables aren't significantly taller or shorter, you can reach the tabletop to access items or switch on a lamp with greater ease. Shop a range of end tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    The end chairs are called an armchair. Typically found at the head of the table, these specific chairs have armrests and give off a more formal feel. You can shop a collection of armchairs and dining tables from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2024
    The difference between a nightstand and an end table is their location: A nightstand is in a bedroom, while an end table is in a living area.

    Find end tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 22, 2021
    You can identify an antique table in a number of ways. The first clue that a table is antique is the joinery. If a piece of furniture is dovetailed by hand, it only has a couple of dovetails, which are uneven. Also, antique tables are not defined by perfect symmetry. Lastly, antique tables were typically made of oak, mahogany, and walnut.
    In addition to the joinery you can check the bottoms of the drawers and the backs of the cabinets. If they were made prior to 1850 then the wood will most likely be dimensioned by hand. It will be uneven to the touch. The secondary wood that receives the veneer will have been scraped smooth but drawer bottoms, backs and bottoms are often left less finished.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    An antique rent table is a piece of furniture that landlords and tenants used to exchange rent. The rent money would be placed in one drawer, the table would rotate for the landlord to receive. It was considered polite and gentlemanly to pay rent this way. Shop a collection of antique rent tables from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
    1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    A rent table is a small circular or polygonal table with drawers. Rent tables frequently had drawers labeled for the days of the week, and English landlords in the 18th century often used them to collect rent. On 1stDibs, shop antique rent tables from some of the world’s top sellers.
  • 1stDibs ExpertApril 5, 2022
    To identify your antique dining table, first check to see if there is a maker’s mark on the underside. If there are no identifying marks or stamps, a furniture appraiser can check the style and the hardwood used to identify your piece. Shop a collection of antique furniture from some of the world’s top sellers on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertMay 5, 2023
    To determine whether a side table is an antique, closely examine its details. Older pieces will typically have telltale features like wood pegs, hand-cut dovetails with some slight imperfections and mortise-and-tenon construction. Tables that are a consistent color throughout or have machine-cut moldings or carvings are unlikely to be antiques. A certified appraiser or knowledgeable antiques dealer can be a helpful resource when dating tables. Shop a collection of antique, vintage and modern side tables on 1stDibs.
  • 1stDibs ExpertFebruary 13, 2023
    While you can look for markings and other details to try and determine the maker, the best way to identify an antique drop leaf table is to work with a certified appraiser. Trusted online venues and search engines can be helpful when conducting research on a specific collectible, piece of jewelry, art work or other item about which you may have questions, but qualified professionals, such as an antiques dealer or an appraiser at an auction house, have the knowledge and experience needed to make more accurate identifications. Shop a selection of antique, vintage and modern tables on 1stDibs.
