1. Large floating bedside table - $204.53
First up, this snow-white floating bedside table from Urbansize is ideal for those who need something small with plenty of storage potential. Because it’s floating, it allows you to easily reach items stored under your bed. It even has a little drawer for miscellaneous items and a shelf to store that good read you’ve been enjoying lately. It comes in black, white, gray, and oak.
2. Mid-century nightstand - $345.43
MoWdwrk has a leggy Scandinavian table in light oak. We love how simple and glam this one is. It has plenty of room on the top to hold a scented candle or a bedside lamp for a late-night work sesh. Quite frankly, it’s just so adorable and tiny.
3. Floating nightstand - $90.00
For the minimalist who wants as much open space as possible, this practical side table from BigFishInteriors is unparalleled. There is an open gap between the wooden frames to hold your goodies, which eliminates the bulky feeling of a traditional bedside table. It also comes in a mind-boggling amount of different woods for the ultimate customization!
4. Rustic + modern wood nightstand - $179.95
Let’s get a pop of color here. From FunctionalKrafts, there’s a lovely bedside table with 24 (yes, you read that correctly) color options! Made out of real solid wood and steel hairpin legs, you’re going to get some long-term usage out of this one.
5. Copper and birchwood side table - $85.90
Continuing with copper options, we have a satin polished copper and birchwood table from QuirkHub. Sometimes you just need a splash of shine in a room and this number hits the spot without being too obtrusive.
6. Black bedside table - $311.92
Need something more industrial? ALiusy comes through with a solid dark oak option with gold accents and lightweight metal legs. Very high quality and not only takes up less room but commands attention in itself.
7. Walnut wood compact floating nightstand - $465.00
KROMMdesign has a beautiful mid-century floating nightstand in American black walnut (pictured), red oak, and sugar maple wood. Easy to mount and has a larger storage cubby for your sleeping essentials that might be too tall for a traditional drawer such as a charging dock for your electronics.
8. Black suitcase nightstand - $215.00
Are you a traveler at heart or a vintage fiend? CreativeCurrentsShop has just the thing: Wait for it… a suitcase nightstand! This unique alternative can be used for extra storage like a blanket or games that you might want to keep nearby. They say when you open it, you’re hit with the aroma of cedar on the inside. We’re admittedly in love.
9. Crate nightstand - $87.00
Kitosdesign has a rustic crate side table that could also be used as a small bookshelf for those days you don’t want to get out of bed and ruin your reading marathon. There are many staining options that can help assimilate this piece into your already existing wooden furniture.
10. Devon floating nightstand - $182.69
SparkShellCraft’s Devon nightstand has a modern aesthetic that matches many different color schemes and comes in gray and white. There’s a handle-free flipping door and most importantly, it floats up above to save you much-needed space.
11. Floating oak double drawer bedside - $272.70
Also from Urbansize is a beachy light oak number with two drawers. This is great if you’d like to keep some separation between your items. For example, you can keep things organized by designating the top drawer for items you need handy and the bottom drawer for your more… personal items. ;)
12. Oak stool nightstand - $138.63
If you don’t need a lot of storage space, why not consider an alternative? This laidback oak stool from ALiusy is petite yet still has plenty of room for your phone and reading glasses!
13. Denali floating white nightstand - $174.71
SparkShellCraft’s Denali floating nightstand has friendly rounded corners and a cool, futuristic vibe. The drawer, instead of pulling out, swings open like a mailbox. There are even special notches for your cords and cables, so your bedroom doesn’t look like a wiry mess.
14. Floating wood nightstand - $98.09
CraftedbyOitenta’s dainty floating nightstand has a Nordic flair and can hide those ugly wall switchplates. The black stripe going across the light wood is an elastic band that can hold your wallet and other lightweight items. Genius!
15. Black and copper nightstand - $288.82
Your chic bedroom wouldn’t be complete without this sleek KANTTARI black nightstand with copper accents, or white with copper. This is soft closing and silky smooth - the perfect luxurious touch.
