Want something a little more original at your bedside? Opt for a unique nightstand and style it accordingly.
Simplify bedside storage with a sleek midcentury modern nightstand set on tapered legs. This model’s small cabinet and drawers keep personal items hidden.
Next, top it with a table lamp—who doesn’t like to read in bed? We chose an affordable accent size with an injection of pastel color and a simple white shade. Then, include a style-apt vintage Big Ben alarm clock.
Balance the weight of the table lamp with framed artwork on the wall. Choose a frame—like this simple gilded wood—that works well with the furnishings.
Books convey warmth in any space so we’ve added a few to our nightstand, both for late-night reading and to elevate our clock.
Our last touches: a jewelry tray and a few succulent plants to bring a bit of life to the bedside tabletop.
Everyone needs a spot to drop jewelry or pocket contents at the end of the day. This midcentury modern boomerang ashtray makes an admirable jewelry cache.
Tiny succulents in small containers like sea urchins and ceramic pots don’t require much fussing so they’re ideal for restful spaces like bedrooms.
For our artwork, we selected a delicate Chagall print from the early 1950s, which works well with our midcentury furnishings and complements the personal intimacy of a bedroom.
