For some reason I adore tiny tables. Their functionality and ability to introduce a new color, texture or material into a room scheme make them worth seeking out. Easy to move around and big on impact, they perform well in any setting. Make a quick change with 17 varied versions here.

Add a pop of color with West Elm 's spindly lacquer Gates Table. Based on a traditional Thai design, this version looks fresh in a shiny, candy-coated finish.

A turned wiry base provides a lightness and transparency to Arteriors Pascal, a mid century modern inspired brass table with a glass top.

A curvy pedestal on Serena and Lily's ceramic Nara Table has just enough detail. It's a classic choice for a warm climate.

A round top and base with a wide pedestal in between makes Jasper's Hudson Side Table a perfect compact package.

Brass and gold catch the light in a room adding a certain warmth. Brass and marble, well, that's just plain sexy. World's Away combines both in the Kyle table. It swivels.

A circular lacquer tray table with a strong linear style adds a bit of functionality with a removable tray top.  It seems Albrizzi- influenced, with the clean lines and great color. From Cyan through Candelabra.

Gorgeous hand-crafted Indian hammered brass tables from Viya Home make me swoon.  The intricate Hundred Petal Lotus Table is a true work of art.

Clean lines and curvy cut-outs converge in Bungalow 5's two-toned Michiko Table. Decorative and functional.

A classic drum table designed by Milo Baughman in a brushed bronze looks just as good as it did when it first launched in the 1970's. Made by Thayer Coggin at Design Within Reach.

With a dark wood top and slim turned gold leg, Currey and Company's chic little side table is like adding a bit of shimmer with jewelry; a little sparkle can go a long way.

Wrapped in linen, John Lyle's Hexagon Trio of small tables in varying heights have a 1970's flair and clean form.

Have a fear of mixing metals? It is time to break through and embrace metallics used in creative ways. A touch of gleam here and there make things interesting, so try the mix with a Nickel Bamboo Tray Table from Regina Andrew

The Teagan Stool from Made Goods adds a shot of emerald green when a dramatic piece is needed. With a finish resembling green tortoise, the stool performs double roles as a perch and a place for a drink beside a chair.

Taking the Greek Key motif big and bold, Regina Andrews Maze End Tables have a Hollywood Regency factor. Try bunching them together, or use them flanking a low sofa.

Pickled and cerused finishes are so much more interesting than dark brown wood. Lighting things up with West Elm's tailored little Jin Side Table in weathered Ash with fret details.

A flower bloom top and tapered base make Stray Dog Designs papier mache table fun and feminine. They come in a bunch of bright colors.
