What We Like: It's easy to assemble

What We Don't Like: The glass top scratches easily

Not so good for: A modern space

Perfect for: An eclectic living room

If you're going for a rustic farmhouse feel, then this table is a great way to add personality to your space. It's well crafted from hand-cast stone, which is then bonded with resin and a realistic leather finish. It's beautifully painted to look like a stack of classic books with a pencil-edged glass top.

This table would work really well in a Harry Potter-themed bedroom, and you can also place it next to a brown leather recliner. Decorate the top with a tall lamp and include fresh greenery to make the space feel alive.

If you want to get compliments, enhance your living room decor with this vintage-style end table. It's made from a hand-painted leather frame to look like leather-bound books with a faux gold gilding. There's a hidden drawer at the bottom, and a door that opens at the front with sculptural metal pulls to reveal a small cupboard inside.

It's a great conversational piece for a Victorian bedroom with warm colors, and it would also make a fantastic gift for the voracious reader in your life.

What We Like: Super simple to put together

What We Don't Like: It could be a little taller

Perfect for: A library-themed living room

Designed to look like a tower of artistically stacked books, this end table is the perfect accent piece for a library-themed living room. It's made from a resin base with an easy screw-on round glass top. 

It would look right at home wedged between a loveseat and recliner in your living room, or you can place it next to a chaise lounger in your home office. It takes up very little space and has a small surface top, so try not to overcrowd it with too many accessories either than a couple of novelty coasters and your latest read.
