If the bed is the star of the bedroom, then the humble bedside table is the support act. After all, the bedroom isn’t exclusively for sleeping, and you’ll need somewhere to stash bedtime reading or to locate a reading light.
Zanotta may not push design boundaries with its Taschino night stand, but the piece deserves a nod due to its generous storage space that’s accessed by a drop-leaf opening.
“Are drawers no longer the done thing?” we overheard someone ask at Salone del Mobile. Apparently not: Kosi Night, a new nightstand from Zeitraum, is accessed by moving the table-top sideways. Meanwhile, Moon by Living Divani is the sum of two half circles that open outwards to reveal an easily accessible storage space.
When looking for the perfect nightstand, look for a versatile piece you can use anywhere that you need storage. Simon Legald’s Jalousi cabinet for Normann Copenhagen could be just the ticket. Its brightly coloured plastic roller shutter door may suggest that it stays in the study, but its wooden body is just as suited to the living room or the bedroom. What’s more, its moveable shelves make it easy to adapt to changing needs.
