the perfect side table

For the perfect side table in any room in your house, measure your space and needs first. Do you have a particular table lamp that needs to fit on it? Will it be beside a sofa with very high arms? Does it have to fit into a very tight spot? What kind of surface is best suited for your needs - glass for easy clean up - wood for warmth, metal for a more industrial feel... Here are a few unique and perfectly placed side tables to get inspiration from.
