What:Hammered metal nesting tables Why: “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,” says Huh. Place 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.
