Chic & Practical Side Tables for the Living Room

Whether it’s a side table or an end table, small tables are still very useful in the living room. Not only can they help you to complete your coffee table when you need more space but can also stand near the sofa to accommodate books and remote controls. We have selected for you 10 charming side table models that are both practical & elegant for your living room. To keep on simplicity while focusing on a minimalist design, choose a small table in white metal; Ideal for a couple of books or a drink. If you are looking for a very unique side table, you can choose a real log of wood. Rather heavy, it will move less easily than a table but will fit right in at the end of the sofa and will give your living room decoration a very distinguished look. To stay in the tones of wood but with a more practical design, you can choose this square table that can serve as both stool and table. Its wood look recalls the seaside decorating style which makes it very suitable for a living room design inspired by nature. For minimalist living rooms, the focus is on very sleek side table designs with sharp lines and geometric shapes; it can be as simple as possible, however, it can also have an ultra-modern shape. Minimalist side table designs are usually made of metal in different finishes including lacquered and matt. If you like to add very original furniture to your interior, there are now many innovative side table forms; the model with curved metal legs in tangy colors looks so unique. Your side table can also take the form of an original stool that will look like a sculpture in your interior; smaller than a traditional table, it will be easier to move. Know that the metal does not adapt to the industrial style only; a side table in very bright metal will match with a feminine living room style. Finally, so that your end table is both up-to-date and practical, you can opt for a hi-tech side table design with integrated LED lighting that will illuminate your living room while providing a space for some decorative accessories.

Industrial Design SW_1 Collection for Coalesse

The way we work has evolved. Work is less formal and collaboration is inherently social. Many workspaces have adapted throughout the years but the conference room has largely remained unchanged for decades.  This became the focus of our project for Coalesse.

The SW_1 Collection for Coalesse rethinks the conference setting and the notion of live/work. Supporting more social engagements and informal behaviors, the collection promotes a relaxed “lean back” attitude through its physical proportions, materials and composition.

The challenge was to create a clearly differentiated solution that addressed the attitudes and needs of today’s creative class and forward-thinking corporations.

Upon launch, SW_1 sales far exceeded typical industry numbers and expectations in its first month alone and together MNML and Coalesee continue to expand on their collaboration together. What started out as one chair and table has expanded into a 50+ piece collection and a line of accessories.
