A mix of accent tables can take your living room from “done” to “done right.” You’ll love the modern style, flexibility, and functionality that our end tables, coffee tables and ottomans bring to your home. Check out these popular living room arrangements and learn why each accent table works in that space.

L-shaped sectional

Large living space? The L-shaped Ian sectional help define this room and is a perfect backdrop for a small-, medium- and large-sized end table. The Classic coffee table features a round quartz top—the perfect shape for maneuvering around the sectional and seemingly tucking into the L-shaped design. The Slim end table brings contrast with its square steel design and is the perfect size for a pot of greenery. The Sanna chair, positioned at an angle, keeps the focus in the center of the room.

Flanked sofas

Pairing two sofas like this encourages conversation and keeps all the focus in the center of the room. The Sanders coffee table is a great solution for this arrangement because its organic shape is easily accessible by people on either sofa, and the dark wood brings beautiful contrast to this light and airy space. Nesting two Bond end tables at varying heights add visual interest, as well as surface area. We love that all the tables in this room have glass tops—it creates a cohesive look and keeps the space feeling open.

Eclectic elements

Bold tones and patterns pave the way for this living room. That’s why the simple, classic designs of these tables strike a perfect balance. The striking shape of the marble Saarinen end table holds up to the high design of the Paris chair, while two Classic end tables with glass tops flank the Hutton sofa for easy access. Placing end tables on either side of a sofa will always create a balanced design solution if your space allows for it.
