Nesting tables -- usually a set of three matching tables in graduating sizes that can be "nested" one beneath another -- are an interesting decor addition. And, they add useful extra serving and work space when used separately. Unlike folding snack tables that require storage space, nesting tables can function as a bedside table, and, in the living room, as an end table or table between a pair of chairs. The term nesting tables can also refer to any non-matching tables that can be fit one beneath another.
Things You'll Need
- Set of nesting tables
Place a set of nesting tables, suitable to scheme of the decor, at the end of a sofa as an end table, between a pair of chairs, or next to the bed in lieu of a nightstand.
Place a lamp, photos, ashtrays, accessories, books or magazines on the table, leaving the lower tables "nested" until needed.
Pull the lower tables out, when needed, for extra serving space for guests, additional work space, or a spot for a cup of coffee or a snack, when you're confined to bed or just lounging.
