When planning a living room, there are always so many things to think about. You’ll want to consider what colours to use to fit your space and concept, decide on how to best use your living room once you’ve measured up for a sofa and ⁠— of course ⁠— add furniture.

Traditionally, coffee tables have always been a must for any living room. Whether you use yours to rest your favourite coffee table books on or add coasters for holding a G&T as a weekend treat, a coffee table has so many functions.

Over the past few years, nesting tables ⁠— also know as a nest of tables ⁠— have been re-emerging as a trend for living rooms. Typically smaller than the average coffee table; they can be used for anything from holding drinks to displaying your favourite decorative items. They’re available in a host of materials, colours and designs and typically cost less than coffee tables, too. However, if you don’t want to compromise on a coffee table, you can always have a nest of tables that includes one, like this model from Dunelm.

The best thing about a nests of tables? The living room isn’t the only place they look at home. Add them to a bedroom to display items or even to replace your bedside tables or use them in a hallway place in lieu of a console table. Nesting tables are especially ideal for those who are short on space but don’t want to compromise on style.

We’ve curated an edit of our favourite nest of table picks available to shop, including the designs that Good Housekeeping’s Homes and Gardens Director, Carolyn Bailey, loves right now…
