Nightstands are a great piece of furniture to have in the bedroom to add convenience to your wind-down and wake-up routines. The models we have chosen provide ample space for lamps and books, shelves to keep important items nearby, and our selection of designs runs from classical to contemporary. As with all furniture, it helps to choose something that is complementary to your existing layout.

Editor's Notes

April 21, 2020:

Historically, nightstands were used to keep chamber pots, but through the advent of plumbing they have evolved away from this rather unseemly function. They are still extremely convenient, and can eliminate getting out of bed at night and searching through your room for your journal or important medication. Many have drawers to keep items out of sight and safely stored, while others have more modern open-concept designs. When a bedside caddie just isn't enough, consider our varied list of designs and models of nightstands to ensure you'll find something that is just right.

The Lasuavy Bamboo is a great option for people with a modern bedroom, and it also stacks for those who have a taller bed or desire more storage space.

The Vasagle End Table and the Christopher Knight Graham are both eye-catching takes on classical designs, and would look great in homes where people enjoy a bold style. Both offer a good amount of storage and surface area to keep plenty of items nearby.

If you are looking to spend a little more for a quality nightstand hand crafted from hardwood, then you should consider the Alpine Furniture Flynn. It is made from solid mahogany and has a beautiful acorn finish that will last for years.

Finally, for those that really want a modern nightstand but don't want to spend a lot of money on a designer piece of furniture, check out the South Shore Fynn. While it is made out of particle board, it has the look of real wood, and has a contemporary design that you might really enjoy.
