Well, this isn’t STRICTLY a bedside table, and I must say it is very inconvenient to use it as one (my husband may have been right here . .). I don’t really store anything in the boxes as it is a teeny tiny hassle to take the lamp off to open them, so I never have. But they are pretty and they are in catalogues that advertise the kind of life I wish I lived, so. Since I have bought them, they seem to be stocked everywhere, which is annoying for me but good for you. They would probably work best on a wrought iron shelf above piles of neatly folded French linen in an all-white bedroom, but if that’s not something you have, I’d say they look good anywhere. They’re available in loads of different colours – get them here (or here or here – oh God).
