Someone once mentioned to me that features in home decor look best in sets of one, three or five, in other words, odd numbers. Two seems too perfect, four is too too many, and not enough simultaneously. Nesting tables are most often featured in sets of three nestled together in perfect harmony.
The great thing about them is that they add dimension and charm to a room without looking too “design-ey.” While they are most certainly highly decorative, they are also quaint and charming. I love them with flowers, a coffee table book, and a candle perched on top. Nesting tables look great in a beach cottage or a Soho loft, a country farmhouse or an apartment in town.
