20 Small Accent Tables & A Few Labor Day Sale Deals

I’ve always loved a small, versatile table (my mom believes you can’t have too many, haha) but it wasn’t until searching for a small accent table to be positioned next to our tub in the master bathroom (see the latest progress HERE) that I put a lot of thought into it and my hunt turned into something next level. I wanted something that was small but not as small as a stool… and nothing too leggy… I wanted a small accent table that had more of a substantial base and was stumpy but it had to have fairy narrow dimensions to fit in the spot I was shopping for. And, it couldn’t be too tall. I found exactly what I was looking for and it’s even better in person — and along the way, I found several small accent tables that are perfect for small spaces from everywhere to the master bathroom (like mine), to a small sitting area or even a bedside surface in a room that’s tight on square footage. Today, I’m sharing 20 favorites from black wood to concrete and marble, from fluted to rattan. Plus, I’m sharing a few noteworthy Labor Day deals at the bottom of the post!

20 Versatile Small Accent Tables for Small Spaces

Most of the small accent tables below come in different finishes and colors — some even come in a couple sizes. Be sure to make note of the dimensions of each — the height for where you need it to fall in comparison to what it will be setting beside and the width for the overall space and also if you plan to have a lamp on top. Links for each of these can be found below the graphic. Also note — several tables are on sale this weekend for Labor Day!

The small accent table that won me over was Number 1 — I ordered the 13″ for my space but it actually comes in a 16″ version and is now available in four colors! Handcrafted and only $179, it’s one of the most affordable small side tables in today’s post and can be found HERE. Here’s a peek of what it looks like beside my tub. As an aside, the master bathroom is almost finished, with the exception of a few details. I’m still determining whether I want to share before a few final touches are complete or whether I’ll share a little sooner…

Another space that called for a small table was in the spot nestled beside the loveseat in the conversation room (see the full reveal HERE). While I included an even smaller version of the small accent table for the post (Number 3), you can find the slightly larger version like mine HERE. It’s solid acacia wood and while mine is a black finish, there is a natural wood option, too.

And when I posted my bedroom sitting area last year, I had so many link requests for this small accent table next to the chair. While it’s unfortunately no longer available, it’s incredibly similar to Number 7. There’s free shipping on that table right now with code YOUPICK. By the way, the chair (HERE) now comes in a charcoal version with a white thing windowpane pattern!

Notable Labor Day Sales

I waited until this weekend to order a few things that have been on my list and honestly, was a little disappointed in the majority of sales. But, while site-wide sales seem to be a little lackluster this weekend, there are a few individual items that are a good deal right now for the holiday.

Remember my dining room revamp a few months ago (full reveal HERE)? I even asked opinions on the wool jute rug (HERE) and ultimately went for it in my own space (mine is the 8’x10′ in the “natural” color). We’ve been so happy with it and it is so well constructed. As a matter of fact, I’ve been looking for a new rug for our living room for months and I finally decided that since I loved this rug so much in our dining room, I’d order the same one for the living room. Unfortunately, I did it a couple weeks too soon because it’s on rare sale this weekend! I’ve had it rolled up behind our sofa for the past week and we plan to unroll it today. You can find it HERE.

Those organic table lamps on the sideboard are also 15% off this weekend with code BYESUMMER HERE.

My mom had purchased THESE multicolor pillows a while ago and they were so gorgeous on her bed, she actually ordered another one this weekend for her living room. The shades are so varied but muted and not bright so it’s an easy pillow to incorporate with a lot of color schemes. It’s 22″ and 32% off right now HERE.

Another notable deal right now is the weekend discount on these light fixtures. My mom has the chandelier in her dining room and it is stunning! The flush mount version is a great option for an entry with low ceilings or any room with low ceilings that you still want to make a little more dressed up.

I shared this wooden bowl in my newsletter last week and I ordered the black in the 16″ option — while that color isn’t on sale, the pretty gray one is! It’s actually 40% off in all sizes offered right now HERE. I plan to use mine on the kitchen island with artichokes but it can easily be moved to the breakfast table as a centerpiece, coffee table, or even bookshelf.

I’m a sucker for a good sink-side soap solution and I know you all are too — that’s one detail I always get comments on when I share my kitchen sink. My mom scored THIS marble tray for her bathroom and opted for the small. It’s the perfect addition to a sink and both the large and small are 35% off right now (and ship free). The small version is actually only $20 right now HERE.

A light you have seen before is my conversation room light HERE, that also qualifies for the discount.

I hope you’re all enjoying your Labor Day weekend. We started ours yesterday with a long walk (since the weather has been ridiculously amazing), followed by a trip to the park, lunch at a neighborhood burger joint, visit to Gran Nan’s, some light chores and baking, and the inaugural game of the UGA football season last night.  Sending all the wishes for health, happiness, and healing your way today. xoxo
