Having a bedside table for some is just an after-thought. I personally think you should consider having more than just the basic tiny table. I love the idea of having more space by the bed.... for books, lamps, a few lovely accessories and more. When you start to think of this....think beyond even... instead of just considering how much space you'd like on the table top...why not consider having drawer space as well.
This gorgeous chest from Ethan Allen comes to mind and I would love having one of these on each side of a glorious bed. If you've found the perfect bed...why not consider a fab chest like this on each side?

Not only does it raise the height of your bedside to an acceptable useable level...you'll soon find that your totally spoiled and could never go back to that pique side table of our grandmothers.

I cant even consider having these tiny tables again..... Your barely able to squeak a glass of water on there after you place a lamp and a book...ugh!
ahh... much better! Space.... a premium resource to be appreciated and enjoyed. Whats even more glorious is what you see here....you do not have to have the same dresser or chest on each side but can experiment with different pieces. I love the use of this gorgeous table on one side and the mirrored chest on the other....so bring in your antiques and change things up. So very elegant.
|Ethan Allen... to me its an investment well worth making.|
While this tiny bedside table is indeed gorgeous... I would much rather see it to the side of a chair....I mean this bed is so luxurious....you could totally pop in two of those mirrored chests on each side and make a mucho posh statement and also have all the space you could need.
These chests by Ethan Allen seem to be the perfect size for the bedside. They are a tad smaller in scale than the typical dresser...which Ethan Allen dressers are exquisite as well....large hulking master pieces!
|They offer a variety of styles and collections.|
The Explorer collection has so many versatile pieces... I love these bamboo front chests too.
so...explore the thought of tossing that tiny table for something way more practicle and posh!
