A nightstand is one of those design elements inside a house that serve more of a function than a decorative vanity. And I kind of learnt that the hard way. I've been wearing glasses since I remember myself but happened to grow in a bedroom with no bedside table (don't ask why; stupid but that a fact). It was a mere revelation to realise that I actually could keep my glasses on a surface other than the floor and not wake up in fear that I'd might step on them or in best case scenario kick the way under my bed and act like a monkey to reach them out. Anyway, that's just a short funny story that brought me a little closer to what a well designed space means and that some furniture are actually there for a reason. Now, as a grown up lady I swear by my little bedside table where I always keep my current reading books, a glass of water and my mobile/alarm clock along with my pair of glasses; all the necessary stuff for a good nights sleep that is.
And that being said, here's some inspiration about pretty and creative nightstands.
