Even if you have a wall-mounted lamp and a Kindle, you probably find you need more bedside table storage than you have. Magazines, books, gadgets, water, alarm clock (or iPhone) and other stuff we won't mention: nightstands can become clutter magnets. Anthropologie, $998. This is pricey but very pretty. Steppe nightstand from Crate & Barrel, $499. Ledge white nightstand from Crate & Barrel, $299. (Also available in Java, a dark wood). True Modern 11-ply nightstand in white from All Modern, $399. 2 Slice swoon wall mounted shelf from CB2, $149. I actually love this color and think it is great that you can put the shelf at any height you want. Also, the space below can be used for a basket or a place to put your slippers. 3 Stria from West Elm, $254. 4 Ambience Antiques on 1st Dibs has this 19th century Louis Phillippe commode for $550. The marble top is excellent and practical... 5 1930s vintage steel cabinet from Urban Remains Chicago, $395. Pretty unconventional, yes. But certainly a conversation starter (should you be at a loss for words in bed). And there's storage!
