Black chairside end tables can give a dramatic look to your den or office. There is a wide range of black end tables from which you can select the perfect one for your den, office or other room. The first thing you'll need to decide is what style of end table you want.

Black Chairside End Table Defined

You may not be familiar with the term, chairside table and might assume it's simply another term for an end table; however, a chairside table is not quite the same. Traditionally, a chairside table is smaller than an end table. It's designed to be used along side a chair and designed so that proportionally, the two pieces of furniture go together. That's why a chairside table needs to be smaller than an average end table.

One of the more popular styles is longer than it is wide, giving the table a narrow appearance. This design allows for the table to fit snugly beside a chair or even between two chairs. To determine if you need to use a chairside table is easy. If the space is too limited for a larger end table or a larger table would detract from the overall room design, then this table is an ideal solution.

You can also find side tables that are round, oval or square. The most popular shape however, is the oblong, rectangle or wedge. You can often find side tables to match larger end tables to keep a uniform look or use a different table for added design interest.
