Which Nightstand Fits Your Style?

Your favorite design says a lot about your personality. Furniture of a certain style shows your individuality and your special taste. The large selection of bedside tables makes it possible to create any desired style.

  • "Less is more," it says - that counts for many bedrooms as well. The minimalist style is becoming increasingly popular. Bedside tables, with clean lines and smooth surfaces, go well with this home trend. A white nightstand blends seamlessly with the rest of the interior, while a black bedside table adds shape and contrast. The neutrality, simplicity and restrained nature of minimalism can also be symbolized by a bedside table in gray. A harmonious overall picture makes the bedroom a place of rest.
  • An alternative to minimalism is the romantic English country house style, which is characterized by natural materials and warm wood tones. A wooden bedside cabinet with large drawers and organic ornaments catches the eye immediately. Wooden ladders, as a combination of work equipment and practical design furniture, also reflect the romance and coziness of the country house style.
  • Bedside tables in retro style are dynamic and innovative and seem nostalgic at the same time by well-known forms. They consist of curved shaped wood or colorful plastic. The colors range from pastel shades to gaudy paintings. Decorate your retro bedside table with simple accessories made of leather, stone, linen or chrome, so it does not look overloaded.

Do nightstands have to match (the bed)? It depends. If you're going for a minimalist, clean look, we would advise you to find nightstands that match your bed. If you're feeling rather adventurous you are free to choose different nightstands that mark a contrast to each other or your bed. But as always when shopping for furniture: Choose the bedside table that makes you feel comfortable and the style you like.
