Bedside tables are a great richness in a small space. They’re the earrings of a bedroom, framing the focal point as well providing great function…and I need to chose a pair for the spare room.
If money was no object I’d be pulled, without fail, to the antique option: Timeless, chic, classic (but they’d be a little (big) voice in my head whispering but where would you put your cup of morning tea??) (fitted glass on the top for protection?)(would it be enough??)
And besides, modern designs can work: There’s a sense of simplicity and space to them – an avoidance of clutter where less is more.
If your bed is your nest, as mine is, then taking a leaf out of hospital design could be the way to go. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone made a brass version of this with hidden wheels in the base and maybe a marble top?
Love the function here, but the mdf style presentation? Needs to be better.
But this is a super clever idea for those with a thin, narrow bedroom. Genius.
An interesting picture: The colours, the velvet, the sheepskin all draw the eye in. The mirrors add that touch of glamour..
And then you see this photo and realise how much better the proportions balance when the mirrors are smaller than the headboard: Little things.
And as I only have a little space……I’m thinking an old fashioned wall sconce might be just the thing: Cheap, simple, effective. Maybe with a smaller mirror above them.

Or even use a pair of upcycled corbels…
Watch this space.

The spare room has definitely been unquestionably subservient to the rest of the house. Not surprising as it’s the least used space. But I’m starting to think it needs to be finished with it’s own injection of glamour.
It needs four elements to complete it – a headboard as the focal point, a rug to ground it, a wardrobe for storage and 2 bedside tables for practicality.
Which way to go? Dramatic contrast? quiet luxury? or boho bliss?
Spoilt for choice..
