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
Asian-inspired furniture always gives a chic vibe. They’re different from what you usually see in furniture shops, so people are more intrigued by them. Asian-inspired tables definitely fit into any living room as accent pieces that pop.
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
The black and white style never really goes out of style. There’s a lot to play around with in terms of materials, so pick a black and white table with trendy materials for a sophisticated yet cool look to your living room.
11. Retro 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.
13. Mid-Century Living Room Tables
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.
14. Traditional Living Room Tables
Traditional-style tables may not look flashy, but they’re definitely always in style. Some are even designed with trendy twist of a gold angled divider that serves as a magazine rack.
15. Gold and Glass Living Room Tables
Nothing says glamour in a living room like gold and glass. A table like that will be right at home in the trendiest of spaces, it’s all in how you style it.
16. Odd-Shaped Living Room Tables
Trendy pieces are usually new discoveries or pieces that stand out from the crowd. So instead of blindly following trends, be a trend-setter instead and experiment with different shapes and combinations of materials.
17. Metal Living Room Tables
Metal tables don’t have to be cold. Pick designs that put different spins on this versatile material, like new patterns and shapes.
18. Wire Living Room Tables
Wire metal is a lightweight, thinner alternative to heavier metals. Also a great option for small living rooms, they come in all sorts of colors and sizes.
19. Wood Pallet Living Room Tables
Go rustic chic with a wood pallet table. If you’re not a fan of the rough edges or outdoorsy look, go for smoother finishes and finer wood.
20. 2-Level Living Room Tables
Functional and trendy, tables with multiple levels can even serve as shelving. If you’re looking for furniture to save space in small living rooms, this is the perfect choice.
21. Oval Living Room Tables
Tired of the usual square and rectangular tables? An oval table is great for narrow spaces, and it adds a playful touch if you have mostly angular or square furniture.
22. Round Living Room Tables
Round tables are great for large and small living rooms alike. They’re more graceful than square or rectangular tables, so you should consider round tables if you want a more feminine-looking space.
23. Modern Living Room Tables
But of course, modern design is this season’s hottest look. Modern tables usually come in solid and neutral colors, so they’re easy to incorporate into any design you want.
