Small side tables always come in handy. Arranged next to an armchair, a sofa, or even used as a plant stand or decorative element on its own, the right table can feel like the perfect finishing touch for a space. Not only does it look good — it’s functional, too. And few side tables are quite as handy as martini tables.
These accent tables are intended to be used by just one person; their surfaces are often only big enough to fit a single drink and a book or magazine. Because of this, they’re easy to nestle just about anywhere you could use an extra place to set down a beverage. And though they’re small in size, the best martini tables are big in style.
Because no matter how “insignificant” a piece of furniture may seem, every piece in your home works together to create a space where you can feel relaxed, invigorated, and inspired. Consider this our case for prioritizing form just as much as function. Here, Havenly designer Kasee Smith shares the best martini tables on the market now. Just add them to your cart, and you’ll soon find plenty of design possibilities open up.
