If you love the look of wood, but want something that's a little more refined, check out the jewel-like bevels on this West Elm Beveled Side Table (originally $199, now $99.99). The angular ends on the solid acacia wood add an elegant look to these tables, though they'd work equally well as stools, too. In fact, they're so versatile they could easily be used for plant stands, stacks of books, a place to rest your feet while lounging in a living room . . . the list goes on. And at half the price, you can afford to snap up more than one.
