So, how to style the side table? The table both serve as a functional table as well as a decorative part of my living room. Storage, lamps, placing my cup of tea in the evening when my office table is to small and the creative work takes place on the living room floor instead.
Used as side table it is the perfect spot for a table lamp. Since the table is quite low the light from the chosen lamp is placed in a nice height and you can use the lamp as a base for the rest of your styling. And lets face it, living in the northern part of Scandinavia we need a lot of artificial light. And the best light is achieved by having several light sources in the room that vary in heights, placement etc.
My home is literally filled with books and magazines and the side table is the perfect spot for a stack or two. Pair it with a nice candle holder of personal choice or another decorative object.
Plants and flowers is always a good idea. With a side table you get a bit more height on the pots that will look to small standing on the floor. And its good for the plants as well, placed higher they get more daylight from the windows. My fig tree is stretching towards the daylight!
Using this table as a lounge table the same decorative tips is relevant. Minus the table lamp of course. Magazines, decorative objects like the Aura table mirror, a vase with (or without) flowers. Choose whatever you prefer and make your own personal selection. And have fun!
