22 Cheap (But Expensive-Looking) Side Tables You Can Buy on Amazon

The side table — otherwise known as the end table, occasional table, or cocktail table — is not the world’s most thrilling home purchase (when was the last time you or anyone you know said, “I can’t stop thinking about my side table!”). But, in its own quiet way, a side table can really set the tone of a room, as it dutifully holds a lamp, remote control, or Amy’s pesto-tortellini bowl. A bright-yellow one is a nice way to introduce some color without going full-on Sesame Street; a Lucite one is a nice way to add a minimalist ’80s vibe without going full-on Wall Street. We did the work of finding the right one for you by rounding up the cheapest (under $200), but expensive-looking, side tables of all stripes, all of which are available on Amazon.
