Twelve fabulous nesting tables that work great in cramped quarters 

Posted by Assia Awad

Nesting tables are great space savers and can often serve more than one function. They can be used as occasional tables, they work great as side table or as a night stand, you can scatter them from room to room and the sturdier ones can also be used as stools. Some even have built-in storage. And when they’re not in use, they nest together in a neat little package. I’ve curated twelve of the trendiest nesting tables right now. Check them out.  


The Paradox Nesting Tables were created exclusively for the CB2 collaborative “The Design Collab.” Designed for creative and versatile arrangements, the tables can be scattered or nested together as one low coffee table.
