You wouldn’t believe how far the bedside table has come since 1892! Back in the days, when the flushing toilet was some mad man’s pipedream, the bedside table was used for storing a chamber pot. How glad are you that we’re living in 2012 where the bedside table has a different purpose…in fact, a range of purposes! Here are some ideas on what you can do with one from Loft Living.
Whether you’re in the 19th century or 21st, one thing you will never have enough of is storage! The bedside table hasn’t changed so much in this regard. It’s what lies inside that makes the real difference. Much of the items you’ll find a bedside table housing today are reading glasses and books (or Kindles for the techno-savvy). Loft Living has bedsides with shelves and drawers that are great for nighttime storage.
While there isn’t much space on a bedside table, you can also use it as a display area. But keep it limited to a picture frame or beautiful lamp. The latter will be great for doubling up as an artwork and a reading light. Or you can keep it purely functional and stick to a reading lamp, alarm clock and/or glass of water for those dry spells. If you’re looking for spacious bedside, try Loft Living’s Liney table.
Just because it’s called a bedside table doesn’t mean you have to use it next to your bed! They work well in other parts of the bedroom or in other rooms, all together, as small tables. And if your table is elaborately designed, you can turn it into an accent piece to add elegance to a space. Loft Living’s Bretagne bedside would make a great accent table because of the carving detail on its legs.
So rather than having to mission in the darkness for an item at night, keep them within arms length with a bedside table from Loft Living. Visit their website at www.loftliving.co.za for more information.
