I've been searching for a side table for a while and so far the only thing I've been able to decide on is the shape: round. Next to furniture with sharp angles, a round table will soften edges and break up straight lines. Here are my picks to round things out.

Panier Side Table - $314
This table, made out of transparent polycarbonate, is actually a container that can be closed on one side with a lid. It can even be used as a magazine rack. How clever is that?
Bolero Accent Table - $229
This one feels like a bronze sculpture worthy of displaying on its own. The fact that you can set drinks on it is a bonus.
Pebble Side Table - $149
This is my current favorite. It's like a giant pebble sculpture that also happens to be functional.
Boyd Round Ottomans - $499
This is an outdoor ottoman, but it would be perfect as a side table. It could also be used for extra seating that's actually comfortable.
Fiberglass Penny Ball Stool/ Side Table - $130.99
I like the futuristic look of this table. I would stack magazines, or maybe even a light, inside of it.
Hannah Round End Table
The clean lines of this piece would be great almost anywhere, but especially in a narrow space.
Loop Side Table - $99
If you like Patricia Urquiola's iconic piece but don't like its price tag, then here is an inexpensive alternative that is equally delicate and pretty.
Symbo Side TableS - $336.60
These tables are very elegant in a Danish-modern sort of way.
Satellite End Round Table - $273
The retro lounge feel and the bright color of this table is so fun. The high density polyethylene, which is 100-percent recycled, makes it feel modern.
Knoll Maya Lin Stones Adult Seat - $371.80
Designed to resemble stone, the solidity of this piece is something that I really love. It's designed to be a seat, but it could make a great table with a tray on top as well.
table 90d - $390
You can never go wrong with a classic like the Aalto Table 90D. This will work anywhere and will never go out of style.
Aerie Large Accent Table - $199
At first sight, this could be a traditional piece handwoven in some exotic locale, but it's completely modernized by the steel construction.
Context Furniture Truss Occasional Table - $295
There's a schoolhouse charm about these pieces — a very stylish schoolhouse, that is! Basic geometric shapes come together to form a really great modern table.
JEB JONES Drum Table - $850
For great craftsmanship, you can't beat these beautiful drum tables that are made using traditional techniques and hand-finished in New York.
Design House Stockholm Tablo Tray Table - Low - $264
This Swedish number with a slight Asian feel has a tray top that is removable and available in different colors.
Abaca Ottoman | Crate and Barrel - $129
The delicate shape is nicely balanced by the rough texture. This would be a great natural element to warm up a modern space.
Slim Round End Tables - $219
I don't think there's a better side table for a child's room than this simple shape that comes in a huge array of bright and pastel colors.
Hudson Round Nesting Tables - $399
At first I thought this set of nesting tables looked a little Shaker, then I thought it looked a little Scandinavian. The fact that its style isn't easily identified is precisely why I like it so much.
Amorphous Nesting Table Set - $898
These vintage-inspired stools are just plain cute, and the color combination is really fresh.
