If storage isn’t a necessity, this tray top table is unusual and striking. If you prefer a clean, light look, this would work well as the narrow frame means there lots of light visible around it.

10. Papillon bedside table, MY Furniture
Last but certainly not least is this sleek side table inspired by highly collectable 1960s bespoke American furniture.
