Little tables like this cheerful one ($425) are must-have furniture. They're compact, so they won't take up too much room, and they're ridiculously versatile. You can stash one in the bathroom and lay out extra hand towels and little just-for-looking-not-for-washing hand soaps. You can use one or two as bedside tables or for phone and pocket change storage. Or you can crowd your liquor bottles on top of one to add an instant bar to whatever room you choose!
