Buying Guide

Novelty end tables can be more or less expensive depending on which model, style and material you choose. In fact, their average price is around $100-200, but you’re guaranteed to find both cheaper and more expensive alternatives.

For example, solid wood or carved models that are made to look like a specific animal, character or object (e.g. octopus-shaped tables, a horse holding a glass table-top, a stack of books, etc.) will usually be more expensive. On the other hand, more minimalist options and those made of laminate or plastic tend to be cheaper.

Novelty end tables: Yea or nay? The answer will depend on the look and feel that you’re going for in your home.

If you’re trying for a more traditional aesthetic, then a novelty end table may in fact not be for you. However, if you’re open to a more vintage vibe or you’re hoping to achieve a modern eclectic look, the artsy, sculptural angles and looks of most novelty end tables may be perfect for you and your home.

Novelty end tables come in every shape, size, and color—but we tend to see two distinct types of novelty tables: artsy, or upscaled.

Upscaled end tables in the novelty vein tend to feature smooth, polished wood carved in interesting shapes, or geometric, angled white fiberboard or melamine that looks like an art installation.

Artsy tables can feature statues of animals, legs that look like trees, small statues of humans holding up your end table or any of a wide variety of other looks! Which type you pick will depend largely on the type of vibe or aesthetic you’re going for in your room.
