A pair of nightstand made by Mid-Century Modern designers — as well as those associated with Art Deco — is very popular. You’ll likely find more than one pair of nightstand that is appealing in its simplicity, but American of Martinsville, Edward Wormley and Paul Frankl produced versions that are worth a look.

Finding the Right Night Stands for You

Nightstands are traditionally designed with functionality in mind. Prior to the advent of indoor plumbing, early nightstands contained a porcelain chamber pot in a cabinet that provided a convenient and private alternative to visiting the outhouse. Today, this piece of furniture — often called a bedside table — is typically a low-profile table that is positioned alongside one’s bed or elsewhere in a bedroom. A nightstand is mainly used to store or support objects that may be needed at night, such as a phone, a book or a small carafe of water. But nightstands can easily be personalized.

"I’ve got a huge vintage lamp, and when I’m lucky, I’ll have fresh flowers in a bud vase," Chicago interior designer Summer Thornton tells The Study about styling a nightstand.

Whether you take a minimalist approach to bedside table decor or prefer to top it with stacks of books and other essentials that you'd like to have at arm's length — this furniture can also change the look and feel of a room, rendering any interior more comfortable and cozy.

Practicality plays a prominent role in perfecting your bedside space, but the decision to furnish your bedroom with a cherrywood mid-century modern nightstand or an antique mahogany piece can have an impact on how you start your day. Take the first step in setting the perfect tone of your morning — browse the wide selection of antique, new and vintage nightstands at 1stDibs now.
