Modern Nightstands

Need something beside your bed for storing essential items? The modern nightstand collection that we offer at west elm is a cut above with some interesting details and features you don’t always find. There are lots of options to consider too.

Designs and Details

Rectangular and round-shaped nightstands have a drawer, several drawers or shelf space, and some have a mix of drawer and shelf space. There are funky, curved designs and some are made with clear glass for a clean, retro look. Defined leg support, abstract drawer knobs and marble tops are some of the features that make these nightstands exceptional. Other noteworthy details on some of the nightstands include zigzag etchings, reclaimed wood construction and slim C-shaped designs. The character and creativity used in making these nightstands gives them an extraordinary contemporary appearance. This type of furniture is typically found in bedrooms on either side of the platform bed, but these are worthy of any room in the house. Put them by sofas and chairs in a den or living room. Place them in covered outdoor living spaces or in a sunroom. The round white nightstands are ideal for nurseries.

Practical Uses You’ll Love

The shelves and drawer space on nightstands provide storage space. Keep your phone charger, books and reading glasses tucked close by if using the nightstands in your bedroom. Specific charging nightstands provide power outlets and USB ports as a charging station. This can be very handy in a hallway or foyer. A lamp is very practical to use on the nightstands in any room. You can store remotes and coasters in a den or living area. Metal nightstands would be suited to office areas or bedrooms with sleek lines and a lower shelf to store books or papers.

Compact Dimensions

The nightstands are built to be compact so they don’t use much floor or wall space. You can even fit them in tight spots or corners. Squeeze one in a dorm room or studio apartment to add some flair to the room and to provide a necessary piece of furniture where furniture is oftentimes limited. With a tabletop mirror, it can double as a quaint vanity in the dorm. Although the nightstands are small in size they’re big on functionality.

Use the nightstands wherever you need a little extra storage and a place to put a lamp or a docking station to charge phones. Any of the choices you discover can become conversation starters with detailing and features that take decorating to a new level.
