Slate-Top End Tables

Updated

So sturdy, so heavy, and quite fetching, for your next attractive furniture purchase, perhaps slate top end tables is a place to venture. Italian slate is a more drab, single color option over Italian marble, but will hold up to all the tests of time just like marble, and do so with integrity and class. And for end tables, it can't be beat. See collection for options.

Slate Top Rectangular End Table

Slate Top Rectangular End Table

4D Concepts

This slate-top end table is crafted with slate and metal. All the metal is finished with a rich powder-coated black, and the bottom sculpted frame holds magazines and newspapers. It ships in a flat box and requires assembling the top onto the frame. 

Designer Advice:

At 18” by 13.4”, this slate end table measures 22.4” tall. Most standard end tables stand between 18-24 inches, so this is on the taller end. You’ll want to pair this end table with a sofa that has an arm that’s higher than the usual 15” or the table top will be oddly higher than the sofa arm.

Slate Top End Table Cabinet

Slate Top End Table Cabinet

This slate table has mineral-finish legs and hardware, is made with high-quality wood and elmwood veneers, and is topped with a patchwork slate top. The back of the table has a slot insert that holds books and magazines, while the front has a drawer and door cabinet.

Designer Advice:

The traditional style of this slate-top side table is finished in a whitewashed light acorn brown. Its height lets it work well as one of a pair of nightstand tables. A mixture of browns with muddy greens and blues, burnt orange, and rust make up the slate color palette which works well with creams and beiges. Add a comfortable armchair upholstered in olive green or autumn gold to relate to the slate top.

Buying Guide

Since slate top end tables tend to have a strong and statement-making design, your living room can easily look unbalanced if your sofa color doesn’t harmonize with your classy end table. To make sure these living room staples complement each other, pick an accent color from the slate top and make it the main color of your sofa.

For instance, if the slates are in brown, blue, and green, you’ll have 3 sofa color options to choose from. Whatever color you decide to go with, you can stick to the same shade or opt for a slightly lighter or darker shade. Examples of common colors that match with slate top end tables are dark brown, beige, navy blue, olive green, and ginger.

Like other end tables, slate top end tables should be slightly lower than the couch’s arm to make them optimal for setting things down. It’s okay if the end table is somewhat higher, but any more than 2” above the couch’s arm will be uncomfortable to use. End tables that are too high may cause the user to bump their hand on the side of the table when they reach to set things on it.

This means that most end tables are between 20”- 24” high. However, small end tables around 18” are a better choice for couches with shallow arms. Tall end tables of up to 28” may be the best option for sofas with large, plush arms.

Slate top end tables are an aesthetic statement; we’d let them shine by putting as little as possible on top of them.

Place another natural element (such as iron or wood) nearby; an industrial lamp, for example. Then, add a few natural coasters, perhaps ones made of marble, to protect the stone’s surface.
