You’ve decided on a coffee table, but have you thought about the benefits of side tables and lamp tables too?
Side tables and lamp tables are like bridesmaids and best men. They’re not quite the stars of the show but they have important roles to play and they make the bride and groom look good too!
A coffee table sits front and centre warmly welcoming your coffee cups, drinks and nibbles, magazines… and sometimes even your feet! So what role do side tables and lamp tables play?

The ideal height for a lamp table is a combined height of approximately 58 to 64 inches incorporating the lamp table and the lamp. Bear in mind lamp tables may not always sit beside a sofa or chair.
