With a third of our lives spent in bed, getting the overall ambience of your bedroom right is among the most important ways that you can truly turn a house into a home. And what more important feature is there than your bedside table and the items you place on it. After all, your bedside table is the first thing you see as you roll out of bed in the morning and the last thing you see at night before you switch your bedside lamp off. Browse the thousands of items we have listed here at Vinterior and you will see many fantastic mid-century bedside tables. Browse through pieces that have the ability to complement your bedroom design, act as a useful storage device and lift your mood during those important moments before and after sleep.
Why choose mid-century bedside tables?The first thing to note about choosing bedside tables is the fact that you may often want to purchase in pairs. While a single bed up against a wall probably only warrants one mid-century piece, a double bed in the middle of the room is often framed between two tables – so you should consider this carefully when shopping around. Remember, that there is nothing compelling you to buy matching bedside tables (after all, each sleeper might have different needs and a mix and match look may reflect the two different styles and tastes in your room). However, for many of us, the need for symmetry is too great to risk choosing contrasting pieces.
So, how do you identify if mid-century style is right for your bedroom?
Well, the answer is that mid-century modern bedside tables are remarkably versatile and will look great with many different styles. Unlike previous generations and styles – such as Art Deco and Victorian – where the focus was more on ostentation and more intricate detailing, the restrained look of mid-century furniture means that your bedside tables will never overpower or seem at odds with your other pieces of bedroom furniture.
Once you have identified that you love the sleek, simple but sophisticated style and the rich, characterful woods that are indicative of mid-century cabinetry, you can begin to browse through the various brands.
Look out in particular for Danish mid-century bedside tables from designers like Kofod Larsen and Borge Mogensen. Depending on the design of your bed, you may wish to choose from tables or cabinets. If your bed is made of teak then you may wish to match this material with your tables. Or conversely, you may want to mix and match which – perhaps with oak or rosewood.
Choosing the shape of your mid-century bedside tableA closed cupboard or cabinet is handy to store books and other clutter, meaning that you may want to consider a piece such as a G Plan vintage pair of bedside chests, which have useful drawers as well as the table top. Styles and wood will vary according to the decade and to some extent the nationality of the piece so whatever the look you are creating, Vinterior will have the perfect piece for your interior.
Some of Vinterior’s retro teak bed headboards actually incorporate drawers as part of the headboard encapsulating that classic 1970s look. For single beds, you will also find interesting night stands within our listings – pieces which are so perfectly functional to the task to sit on one side of the bed only.
