    on/to the left of something or on the left-hand side of something

    Hello.

    Suppose that there is a table in the room. I would like to say that the table stands on the left-hand side of the window,

    Should I say:

    • The table stands on the left-hand side of the window.
    • The table stands on the left of the window.
    • The table stands to the left of the window?


    What do you think?

    Thank you.

    In my opinion, the three versions are all synonyms.

    It's on the left-hand side of the window if it's attached to the window. That's not likely for a table.

    On the left of the window doesn't work.

    Your third sentence is correct if you end it with a period.
