A thoughtfully arranged floor plan makes all the difference! A large part of that is filling negative space with functional furniture in a room. The easiest way to add form and function? An accent table! Most frequently we use them next to a sofa, occasional chair, tucked in-between or flanking two pieces of furniture, and even next to a bedside. The possibilities of these pieces are endless, and they can easily be moved throughout your home to change up your aesthetic every once in awhile. Fortunately for us, this is one piece of furniture that doesn’t always come with a hefty price tag. Check out our favorite accent tables, all under $150, in every style.

You can really get creative with the placement of these tables! Think outside the box when floor planning. If you’re on the fence about splurging on a large coffee table, try two matching accent tables, like the image below.
Of course there’s the obvious, positioning an accent table next to a sofa.
You can even float one of these tables in a bathroom. Remember Sarah’s bathroom? She likes placing additional towels and toiletries on a side table for guests. It looks equally as great styled minimally, with a single floral arrangement.
A good decorating rule of thumb is that for every seat, there should be a table within reach to place a beverage. Imagine yourself sitting on a sofa, occasional chair, chaise, or daybed… is there a table within reach?
I love the variety of finishes, shapes and colors included in this roundup! I’m also liking the mix of new and old – some are great vintage finds and one-of-a-kind pieces… and they’re all fantastically priced! We plan to use one of these cool accent tables in our living room in-between a set of nice (hopefully leather) lounge chairs. Which accent tables are you leaning towards? Tell us your favorites below!
