23 On-Trend Living Room Tables And How To Style Them

Every Living Room Needs A Table, Or Two

Trends change so quickly these days. So while it’s nice to have a living room that’s trendy from top to bottom, by next year there will be new trends to explore, and you’ll be left trying to catch up. I recommend just adding a few small trendy pieces you can change around every so often. Adding tables to your living room will do just that. A trendy table is a simple and cost-effective way to make your living room look more current.

Here are some of my favorites to help you embrace all sorts of trends:

1. Copper Living Room Tables

Copper tables bring a refreshing change from the usual silver or gold. They’re also edgier, something you see in trendier homes.

2. Small Living Room Tables

Flex your creative muscles—ditch the traditional coffee table, and combine several small tables instead. It’ll show off your eye for interior design, and it’s ideal for small living rooms that can’t hold bulky, traditional coffee tables.

3. Dark Wood Living Room Tables

Dark wood can be trendy too! Especially when paired with neutral tones like white and beige, it adds some contrast to your living room.

4. Chic Living Room Tables

If your living room is already filled with trendy pieces, then you’ll need an equally chic table to match. An oversized ottoman makes for a great center table for that comfy chic living room vibe.

5. Marble Living Room Tables

When used properly, marble living room tables can pass off as trendy and modern pieces. Marble and gold especially, when paired with other gold accents. Contrary to popular belief, it marble decorating options are vast enough to not make it expensive.

6. Asian-Inspired Living Room Tables

7. MOD Living Room Tables

The more you look at vintage furniture, the more you’ll find that “vintage” is a blanket term for anything that was once trendy. One of these vintage trends is 60s MOD. It’s a bit retro, a bit forward-thinking, and very youthful. Think the younger counterpart of mid-century design.

8. Nesting Living Room Tables

Nesting tables are the next big thing right now, with practically every furniture shop making and stocking them. They’re very current, and come in a lot of different styles. Use them in pairs or scatter them around your living room.

9. White Minimalist Living Room Tables

If you want a minimalist look but find most of the pieces too stiff or plain for your taste, incorporate smaller pieces into a cozy design. Living room tables that are modern or minimalist are perfect for that subtle hint.

10. Black And White Living Room Tables

Just because you have a retro table doesn’t mean you need a fully-retro living room. You can still have a modern and homey, yet trendy, living room with retro table. Opt for one decorated with modern design elements like nautical accents and colored glass.

12. Painted Wood Living Room Tables

Barnyard-themed wooden tables get a fresh, trendy update when they’re painted in clean colors like white. You get the shape and the feel of the country, but in a color and look that will cut it in the big city.

Mid-century design is the slightly older, more serious counterpart of MOD design. It’s great for more formal living rooms or darker color palettes, but it still has a playful side with angular legs and ingenious design.
