No matter how small your living space these sets of small tables are an ideal occasional solution. There are lots of different designs from traditional to contemporary to suit any setting.
Solid wood tables, usually oak or pine, are ideal but are often the most pricey. Tables that combine a solid wood frame with a veneered top offer a good value alternative though.
Painted tables are another solution with cream being the most popular choice. Especially so when combined with a natural wood top.
This is just a small selection of traditional style tables that offer good value for money.
