Why You Need Nesting Tables In Your Life

Pretty and practical, nesting tables are NYC interior designer Young Huh's must-have pick for nearly any room in your home. Here, she shares her favorites.

“My favorite piece—or pieces—are my hammered metal nesting tables,” says New York City-based interior designer Young Huh. “The taller table provides a purposeful space to store and showcase items, while the lower one is at the ready when I need an additional surface.” Huh suggests placing them next to a sofa as a set of side tables, in the entryway as a compact console, or along a bare wall to display flowers or artwork. Bonus: When you’re entertaining, they’ll provide extra surfaces for refreshments.
