The Best C Tables.

The Best C Tables

Of all the many (lol) things in my apartment, the thing I’ve probably gotten the most questions about recently is the little brass C table I am usually working off of by my couch. It makes sense. The living room is now the office! And as many of us navigate working from home, the couch is now the office and having a little table like this is invaluable. I have been a big fan of the C table for a long time. It gives you an easy place to rest your drink (or snack). It doesn’t take up much space, and it is (in my opinion!) quite stylish, too.

I’ve had many a hungover morning where I’ve just hung out in my living room and laid on the couch with my snack and remote and gatorade. All very happily resting right next to me thanks to this little friend. These days, the C table functions more as a couch-desk than a hangover station but I digress… it’s versatile! It’s definitely a favorite piece of furniture for sure.

The brass one is unfortunately long gone: it was an under $100 find from Target (from the Nate Berkus collection) so today I thought I’d round up a few more favorites. More recently I added a second C table from Room & Board to my other couch – in vibrant orange. I really love the clean line of this one… it’s perfection! No one has asked me about that one yet (lol). But I actually like it even more than the gold one. It makes a great pop of color, the silhouette is very sleek and chic and minimal. The table features a stable place to put all the important stuff without taking up extra space. The perfect accompaniment to your sofa or chair. And also: it’s a little longer so I can fit my laptop, microphone (for podding), and coffee on it. Below are a few more I really like!

I also included a couple drink tables as I love those, too. I have these marble topped ones and highly recommend.

    So funny, I just ordered one that’s good and a marble top from World Market because I’ve been wanting one so badly! It seems like the perfect place for my book and a glass of rosé. I also like that i can move it around, we have a set of chairs in our living room that don’t get much use but i think this will help.

    Can’t wait for it to come!

      Oh I totally overlooked World Market when I put this together!!!! It’s honestly the best!!!!! Great for entertaining too, I’m always afraid people will put their drinks on the floor and spill them but now always have a good spot!

    Love how you’ve decorated your patio. Very envious of your outdoor space. Also going to track that folding rattan chair for next summer.
