A C-shaped side table that slides under couch or chair

Our team has been a big fan of this type of C-shaped side table since many years now. We came across this gem of a find in a hotel room at Springhill Suites by Marriott. You know if Marriott is using a piece of furniture across almost 50,000 rooms of the 400+ Springhill locations, this must be a pretty solid idea. Firstly, we were super impressed by its practicality, looks and space saving nature of being able to slide the table under the couch. Secondly, for those of you familiar with Springhill Suites sub-brand, you know it is the parent brand Marriott’s cool kid. Everything at Springhill, their lobby, the hotel’s exterior and interior color theme, the bathroom design and furniture in the suites are tailored to please the modern, sophisticated yet minimalist palate of the young generation. The point is, we immediately fell in love with that one little piece of furniture and we’re sure you will too!

Main reasons why you want a c-shaped side table that slides under couch

Side tables are an essential element in the living room. In fact, some of our team members claim they utilize their side and end tables more than their center piece furniture, ottomans or coffee tables. We believe them!

Below is a wide variety of side tables that will slide under the couch for you to browse. We’ve included our thoughts on each and made sure you have you pick of:

— Luxury or budget.
— Horizontal or vertical C-shape orientation of the shelf.
— Standard or stylish design.
— Wood or metal or both or other make of materials!

PS – Please check that your couch is 1.5 – 2 inches off the ground or there’s a risk the base of such side tables will not slide under the couch. Similarly, check the height of side table options below to ensure its top will slide over your couch!

Happy shopping! (or make it yourself if you’re a champ like that!)
