Knowing where to find mid-century modern end tables is only half the battle. Anyone who has tried to furnish their space in the retro furniture style has run into a unique problem: In current living room design, end tables are overlooked in favor of larger pieces, like coffee tables or entertainment stands. Yet a chic end table was absolutely vital when styling mid-century modern living rooms, to the point that some of the era's designers went ahead and attached end tables to their sofas. This was the time that also popularized stocked bar carts in the living room; having a place to rest your evening drink was important.
