One Height Doesn't Fit All

If you're using it with a chair or sofa, a side table works best when it's no lower than an inch or two below the arm of the seat it's next to. A standard sofa arm is around 24 inches tall, so aim for a table about that height. If you're pairing a table with a chair that has a shorter arm, or if you want to use the table as a stool, pick one that's more like 16 to 20 inches. If it's going to serve as an entryway piece, choose one that's 27 to 30 inches tall. Journey Trading Co. Houston 18"-H x 16"-diameter table, $480, allmodern.com
