Like coffee and cream, tea and toast, or peanut butter and jelly – there are some combinations that just work! Similarly, finding the right coffee table to complement your side tables can liven up your living room like nothing else!
While so often we focus solely on the sofa or chairs in a living space, the tables adjacent to them can actually make or break the cohesiveness of your design. That’s not to say you need to match every element, or even stay in the same style or collection to pull off a polished look. But you do want to pull together pieces that work well together and will add to the style of a room, rather than just serve a function.
This is usually easier said (or read) than done. So we’ve arranged our favorite Joybird coffee tables and side tables into perfect pairings that can instantly uplevel your living room and add a whole new complexity to your interior. The best part? These pairings are just as functional as they are fashion forward!
The angular and almost effervescent quality of the Lucas Coffee table is a perfect juxtaposition to the Olivia End Table’s textures of marble and brass. While the end table’s x-shaped base is reminiscent of Lucas’s intricate geometry, the pair isn’t too close of a match, making it a compelling and beautiful mix.
The Brant has a lovely natural quality that emanates the simple elegance of raw-material design. The hexagonal table-top and slender tapered legs of the Hex End Table serve as a delightful counterpoint to Brant’s bold, flat-iron base and boxy shape.
This is like an art-deco and mid-century modern match made in interior-design-heaven! We simply adore how Brennan’s hairpin legs symphonize with the London’s streamline-style base. Plus the rounded details of the London serve as a delightful contrast to the Brennan’s distinguished angles.
Urban minimalism meets sleek feminine structure in this unlikely pairing. Of course, it’s the contrast of the two styles that make this combination work. The heavy concrete top of the Odin plays off the half-moon, marble sophistication that the Ane Nesting Tables bring into every space.
This combination is the epitome of mid-century chic! The Cullen Coffee Table’s flared legs and slatted lower shelf give it a classic retro charm. The Marlow’s recreation of popular pedestal end tables of the period lends authenticity and mixed-textural complexity that is sure to elevate your interior in the best way possible.
We hope this post has inspired you to be playful with your pairings of coffee tables and side tables! Remember, it’s these little supporting characters that can tip the scale for a winning home design.
