I recently did a post on chairs {HERE}.  I have two very dear friends that have a weakness for chairs so I was sure the post would strike a chord with a couple of people.  One of my chair-admiring friends suggested that I do a post on small tables.  Unable to resist a challenge where blogging is concerned, I jumped right in.  My search was fun and I think small tables could become a weakness of mine.  They seem to add something special to any room, especially when there are wonderfully interesting accessories adorning them.

The simple table (just inside the door) probably holds keys and sunglasses for its owner.  With a basket under the table this sweet table performs both beauty and function.

I love the detailing on this metal table, which appears to be placed in front of a heater.  Clever use and a great disguise…I believe this might be a bedroom.

I think this Chinese alter table makes this room.  The twin beds and twin bedside lamps are in perfect symmetry.  So pretty.

Heirloom Philosophy

Such great detail with the carving and flower basket detail at the base, this table with the chair beside it welcomes you into the room.

Lady Grantham probably wishes the small table behind the gentleman to her right were closer, she could place her glass of port on it.

Even this petrified tree trunk makes a striking table and vignette.

A simple glass and iron table provides the perfect spot for a towel and toiletries in the wonderful bathroom below.  I love the antique piece on the wall behind the bathtub.

The small gray-finished table next to this settee is a nice touch.

I recently found this site thanks to Brooke at Velvet Linen, looks promising for its charming everything!

The look of a marble-topped table adjacent to an island is very useful.  Upon closer inspection you’ll notice it’s actually made to look like the table is independent of the island when it really is one slab of marble.  Love the French bistro bar stools.

Another little table with only a lamp as an accent, but very pretty, don’t you agree?

This little blue table was in my post about chairs, but I truly was captivated by the unique color and lines of this little accent table.

I really like this hallway, the paint color, picture gallery, molding details and paint color and the charming wicker table makes it picture perfect.

Take you pick of the either or both of the smallish tables in this lovely room!
