I’m calling it. Bedside tables are the most essential item in your bedroom essential, after a bed of course. A place to store your stuff, keep your diary out of reach and ensure your floor isn’t covered in detritus.
There’s no need to compromise on style when it comes to shopping for one. Instead invest in brightly coloured, jewel-toned mixes of metal and wood to jazz up your four walls.
To give you a helping hand, we’ve handpicked our eight favourite styles for the minimalist, the maximalist and every style in between.
Known for its chic, contemporary furniture, Made should be your first port of call for standout pieces like this marble and brass table. It’s great if you like to read before bed as the gold tray will hold magazines and books galore, while the green and black top conceals a drawer for things you’d prefer to keep out of sight.
This colourful two drawer table will add a burst of colour to your bedroom and can easily be used to match with soft furnishings, such as a scatter cushion or a rug if you’re looking for a uniform finish.
Playful yet functional, we love this blue number. It’s sure to brighten up a room, while giving you ample space to store your stuff. It’s especially good if you don’t want to wake a sleeping partner by opening and closing a drawer.
This mosaic inspired table is an extravagant accent to add into the bedroom, and one you won’t find very much elsewhere. Forget Ikea, Etsy is where it’s at for bespoke homewares.
Rich jewel tones like this plum shade wooden drawer paired with gold legs add an understated elegance to your home. *adds to basket*
If you’re a minimalist at heart, then you’ll love this structurally simply design that will sit tidily by your bed, with just an alarm clock and phone charger atop. It can also be slid over the bed to act as a makeshift table for watching Netflix or a hungover breakfast in bed.
If you’re short on floor space, or simply want a bedside table that’s easy to clean, try a floating one like this, that means you don’t have to comprise on storage space.
If your bedroom only allows room for one bedside table instead of a pair, make it this one. Made from oak, it has two reversible drawers so if you want it all in the same colour you can. Personally, we love this mint green shade however for a splash of colour.
