Mmmmm...expensive, but we are intrigued by the design and colors of these stackable side tables/storage containers, called the Panier side tables. The storage component and ability to vary height by stacking makes these a nice, modern idea for a bedside table. See the fab colors and stacking possibilities below:
"Panier is a container which can be closed on one side with a trasparent lid in polycarbonate and it can easily be used as an end table or as a magazine rack." Available from Hive for $271 each.
