Taking requests: nightstands


midcentury nightstand

My friend Lori mentioned that she might find a post on nightstands useful, and I realized I’ve been sort-of-but-not-really in the market for just this item since I moved into my current place a few years ago. My old apartment’s bedroom was huge, but my current one is small, and I’m stuck with these two unwieldy nightstands that only fit when I turn them sideways, which makes opening the drawers challenging. I like this midcentury-style option because I am always a sucker for wood contrasted with white.

astor nightstand

This is very Country Farmhouse, which isn’t so much my style, but I find myself drawn to it nevertheless.

modernist nightstand

The brass feet and drawer pulls here are a nice touch.

rattan nightstand

This rattan number is rather trippy in a way I can really get behind.


This one looks like it would just sort of disappear.

Again with the white and wood.

raina nightstand

A pop of red is kind of a fun idea for a bedroom.

harlow nightstand

This is narrow enough to fit in a snug bedroom, and under $100 too.

2 Thoughts on Taking requests: nightstands
    18 May 2018

    Nightstands are just tricky pieces of furniture and one piece of furniture I must have because I like a light next to my bed so I can read and I have to have a place to put the book I’m reading and then there’s that box of kleenex that needs someplace to be and, of course, a small bottle of lotion and my inhaler and nasal spray just in case….(sigh)…

    I have two GREAT nightstands in Austin that belong to Ned and I will always be grateful to him for providing them.

    Of these I’m really drawn to the West Elm with the brass feet because you can stow everything away out of sight and a dust mop will fit underneath it!
