Side tables can be used in many rooms to provide additional surfaces and storage that are discreet, stylish, and space-saving. Its height can vary by its purpose; for example, a height of approx. 60 cm is suitable for a small side table nestled between sofas or tucked into a corner, so you can easily reach for it. This height also works for coffee tables, which can also be as low as 40 to 50cm tall–a good rule of thumb is to make sure it’s no taller than your sofa so you can comfortably reach for items on the table.
But the living room isn’t the only place for a side table! It is just as practical and decorative in the dining room as an alternative to traditional kitchen shelves and sideboards. Side tables are ideal if you only have a small dining table that doesn’t have much space for serving dishes—for this, choose a model taller than 60cm so everyone can reach the food effortlessly.
A side table can also be used in the bedroom as a bedside table, with just enough room for a lamp, a glass, and a book. Make sure it’s no higher than the bed it’s next to!
You can design your side table in a wide choice of styles and materials. Our SYDE collection is ideal if you like modern side tables with clean lines and geometric shapes. The understated structure is a filigree frame made of stainless steel, and achieves an almost weightless look with a table top that appears to float on the frame. The table tops are available in different marbles, real wood veneer, or clear and frosted glass. You can also choose coloured finishes for your table top. The delicate frame is available in brushed, polished stainless steel, in matte gold, or in a colour of your choice.
The ECLYPSE model, inspired by modern Scandinavian design, offers table tops made of real wood veneer and solid wooden legs. No matter whether you choose oak, walnut, or beech veneer, a round side table or an oval model, your side table will be original thanks to the characteristic grain of each wood tone that adds a unique flair. Which wood should you choose? Beech is characterized by its light colouring and rather delicate grain that brings a fresh, natural aesthetic to your furniture; a side table in oak is a warm, classic choice, while the high-contrast, strongly iridescent grain of walnut wood has a certain depth and gravitas. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, our wooden coffee tables are hard-wearing and durable; made of high-quality European wood that’s sustainably sourced, your MYCS side table is a piece for a lifetime.
Regardless of whether your style is reserved and elegant or eye-catching and colourful–with MYCS you can create a side table that’s perfect for you.
