Rian Side Table

We spent some time at Ikea with a client who needed some cheap fillers until a little cash came in.

She wanted simple, chic bedside tables to hold night reading and a (small) lamp. We needed to get her to pull her mattress away from the wall so her honey didn’t have to climb over her to get into bed at night. That meant the side tables had to be small.

We give you the Rian ($9.99). It comes in white as well. Its chrome legs give it just the high-end pazazz needed to help the happy couple achieve their dream of a calm yet sexy bedroom. It looks so good in the room, our friend doesn’t even need to replace them. That’s when you realize that Ikea rocks.
