Sustainable Roundups: 10 Side Tables for People and the Planet

Side tables are versatile pieces of furniture that find a place in many spaces, from the living room to the bedroom.

Materials vary from wood to stone, and for this roundup, we’ll focus on either sustainably-sourced materials or waste-based ones.


So let’s round up 10 interesting examples taken from SforSustainable, the sustainable interior design platform I curate.


Sustainably Sourced


Natural materials are not automatically a sustainable choice. What makes the biggest difference is how they’re sourced. Does sourcing respect the balance of the ecosystem? Only in this case, the material will be in line with long-term sustainability.

Precious Offcuts


Stone is a precious natural material whose extraction often requires an intensive process. In most cases, working with stone creates offcuts that – despite having smaller and weird shapes – shouldn’t be discarded. In fact, these bits and pieces can become beautiful objects with just a bit of creativity!

Waste-based Materials


Waste-based materials are one interesting and prolific field in sustainable design. In short, the idea is to find innovative ways to make sense of what has been considered useless so far. Examples go from glass shards, discarded textiles, and rubber to fruit and vegetable peels!

Product selection:

  • Upcycled

  • Block

  • Cassie

  • Rubber Cyl

  • Side Table 03

  • Tinct
