A new nightstand can be as refreshing for your bedroom as a good night sleep is for your body. Whether you are looking to add the perfect piece to set off a beloved bedroom suite or require a new nightstand as part of a complete room redesign, style a beautiful bedside tableau with my top picks for bedside bliss.
Keep bedside essentials stored in ease of reach, yet out of sight... My Kagney Side Table offers a concealed drawer, for the ultimate in hidden storage, while the round profile and black and gold palette are an ideal addition to the contemporary bedroom abode. Where excess in storage is a must, my Reynolds Side Table is unashamedly functional - offering ample storage space in two deep drawers, all the while providing a sophisticated aesthetic with contemporary appeal.
If your bedroom offers limited floor space, consider a seemingly invisible bedside table... Mirrored furniture reflects its surroundings to effectively and efficiently create the illusion of more space. My Brittany Mirrored Side Table offers just this, and has the added advantage of on-trend splayed legs paired with understated hardware, to provide a sense of delicacy that will make even a crowded corner feel spacious. And while your at it, pull up my Toulouse Small Ottoman featuring hidden storage – always a plus when space is at a premium.
Perhaps clean lines and a minimalistic direction is your vice... A bedroom seeking the restorative powers of the minimal can hardly fail to overlook the sleek profile of the Argo Square Side Table, featuring two shelves of clear glass framed by a highly polished gold bullion, for an effect of refined contemporary minimalism, with just a hint of glamour.
Certainly a nightstand out of the ordinary, my Ellis Side Table features jaw-dropping aesthetics for an effect nothing short of remarkable, not least in the bedroom. Directional silver rods create an eye-catching three dimensional pattern, while the gold accents and graphite surfaces act to create visual depth and welcome detailing.
There's no current look more contemporary than that of the nesting side table. Take this trend into the bedroom with my Georgia Nesting Tables, each offering a different profile in gold leaf, paired with espresso tapered legs. Unrivalled for functionality, the nesting table offers styling opportunity galore.
Considered mixing and matching need not appear haphazard, rather complementary bedside tables featuring similarities in materiality & style offer a contemporary and of-the-moment look of curated bedroom style.
Opt for pieces from the same collection in with subtle differences to take heed of the trend, while ensuring a sense of timelessness. My Canasta collection offers a range of side tables, ideal as bedside companions, while the pairing of my Argo Round Glass Side Table and Argo Smoked Mirror Side Table presents slight variations in dimensions and surface materialities for a considered mis-matching.
Enjoying a welcome come-back, mid-century furniture is finding itself enhancing a myriad of contemporary homes. My Thornley Timber Bedside Table delivers on all the benefits of a traditional nightstand with storage, together with the walnut timber finish popular in midcentury modern design and the unmistakable references toward iconic post-war design.
Oh-so sleek, marble is the current interior flavour, though I maintain marble is sure to promise enduring style for years to come. Elegant, sophisticated and contemporary, marble enhances an interior with elegance and the individual touch that only natural elements provide - each piece unique. My Wolseley Side Table takes advantage of the sleek characteristic inherent in marble, pairing them with the contemporised cabriole leg, infusing a Parisian charm to the highly polished silver frame.
For a contemporary bedside companion with a feminine edge, look no further than my Carnaby Side Tables in both gold and silver. A pattern of intersecting rings creates a floral-like base, topped with a thick glass surface - the ideal perch for a table lamp and current pulitzer prized novel.
Where my Swanson Tiered Side Table lacks proportions, it certainly doesn't lack contemporary style. A design savvy addition to any bedroom, the Swanson features an on-trend ombre effect, the finish graduating from a deep bronze at the base to a silver leaf at the surface. A compact footprint also allows the Swanson to fill small voids - enhancing the smaller boudoir or guest bedroom where space is at a premium.
