Carafa Regular Round Table Copper/Black
Here’s hoping rose gold never goes out of style, ‘cause we’re still hooked on this metallic. Made up of a black tempered black glass top and a chrome steel tube frame, it’s a stunner that’ll look good in both the living room and your walk-in wardrobe (a girl can dream).
$79.90, Available at FortyTwo
Apollo Stool/Occasional table in matte black
It may officially be a stool, but we love it far more as a side table thanks to its playful use of geometry, and sleek, black base. Keep the styling simple with a stack of books or a candle and a plant.

Rosa Mirrored Tripod Accent Table
If your home is best described as glamourous, you’ll love this accent table from TaylorB. Its round glass etched top mirrors the popular vanity trays seen all over Pinterest, only wider and far more striking. It’s also guaranteed to brighten up any space, and adds a nice complement to soft textiles.

The intricate design of this accent table makes it an instant hit. Its embellished with hand-carved bone pieces and features a traditional floral design that fits right at home in a variety of spaces.

Bamileke stool in large and white
This hits us right in the tropical feels. We don’t know what we love more: the ‘woven’ design of its stem, or the rustic look of its wide, circular table surface. It’s the perfect place to prop up our home decor magazines, diffusers… and a nice glass of wine after a long day.
$850, available from Originals Furniture
Jacques Lucite 2 Tier brass
This one’s a statement piece your guests will definitely ooh and ahh over. Crystal clear acrylic forms its base, while brushed brass in its corners gives it a luxurious touch. Place it next to a high-armed sofa to easily reach your books and coffee, or as a nightstand to complement a gorgeous lamp.
