Look for Less: Mirrored Sideboard Table

Recently, I found this gorgeous room. I love finding luxe design in small living spaces. I have a small apartment so I’m always looking for design inspiration. This room achieves its open and airy feel through a light color palette.

My favorite part of this room is the mirrored sideboard table. As someone who is currently shopping for a sofa table/sideboard table, this piece caught my eye immediately. I love the white color as well as the mirrored design on the front. Not only gorgeous, this table is also functional. Function is very important in small spaces. Sideboard tables are also very versatile. Don’t hesitate to use them in your entryway to welcome guests, as a buffet table in your dining room to store dishes or cookbooks, or as a chic entertainment center to hide unsightly cords and wires.

I am personally a fan of the white version in the picture but found mirrored tables in other finishes that are just as beautiful. West Elm’s Foxed Mirror Buffet is truly a showstopper. It’s a bit of a splurge but worth it for this investment piece. Sear’s Powell Console offers a more affordable option for less than $200.

The curved pattern (identical to the one pictured) and dark brown finish would make it a great addition to any home. If you love the pairing of mirror paneling and white lacquer, and are not in need of storage, Wayfair’s Crestview Mirrored Console Table is a fabulous choice.

Once you purchase a sideboard, your design options are endless. You can go the traditional route and add a couple of lamps, flowers, and a tray to showcase sentimental pieces. A snakeskin tray (pictured on right) or a lacquered tray are both chic options that are on trend and compliment the tables perfectly.

Not a fan of traditional design? Go contemporary with all white accessories. ZGallerie has a great selection that would add depth to the white lacquer or pop against the dark wood. Lastly, you could leave the table bare and use it to highlight your favorite piece of artwork similar to the room above. The possibilities are endless.
