Bedside Tables

Mid-Century Bedside Tables

Did you know that we spend a third of our lives in bed? Yep, that’s a lot of shuteye. This is exactly why it's so important to get the ambience of our bedrooms right, not just to cultivate a good night's kip, but to create a space that really feels like home and that we love being in. A mid-century bedside table that oozes retro charm might seem like a small, simple piece of furniture, but choosing the right nightstand can really help create this ambience and pull our bedroom together. From those late-night reads to medications, phones, glasses and of course a beautiful vintage bedside lamp, bedside tables are a must-have for keeping all of our essentials in easy reach when our heads hit the pillow. Mid-century nightstands are some of the most timeless designs, looking elegant and adding functional style and aesthetic to almost any bedroom. With their simple lines and clean style, mid-century bedside tables are some of our personal favourites. Browse our extensive range of mid century style bedside tables for sale and choose from durable woods to steely metal stands.

  • Why choose mid-century bedside tables?

    Mid-century modern bedside tables are remarkably versatile and look great with almost any other style. Unlike previous design eras, like Art Deco or Victorian where the focus was more on ostentation and intricate detailing, the stripped back, simple look of mid-century furniture means that your bedside tables will never overpower or seem at odds with your other bedroom furniture.

    This makes mid-century nightstands a really good investment, because no matter if your tastes change and you fancy a switch up, move house or redecorate, they’re almost guaranteed to still look good.

    Choosing the perfect mid century bedside table for you

    Styles and wood will vary according to the decade and to some extent where the piece was made. If you love the simple, sleek, Scandi look, then keep an eye out 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. A closed cupboard or cabinet is handy to store books and other clutter—our personal favourite being G Plan vintage pairs of bedside chests, which have useful drawers as well as the tabletop. Some of our retro teak bed headboards actually incorporate drawers as part of the headboard too, which encapsulates that classic 1970s look.

    Use our handy filters to refine by size, style, design, colour, materials and more to whittle your search down and find that perfect piece.

    How to style your mid century nightstand

    Bedside tables look great in pairs. Whilst a single bed up against a wall only warrants one mid-century piece, double beds can look great when framed with two mid century bedside tables. This creates a really cohesive, symmetrical look and is even better when the materials are matched with those of your bed frame, or other pieces in your room.

    That being said, the eclectic look is in! With home prices rising, many contemporary buyers don’t have the funds to kit out their space with matching pieces. Going for that shabby chic, thrown together look can really add some unique flair to your space. If you’ve got two sleepers in the room, each may need something different from their mid century nightstand, and two different pieces can reflect individual tastes and style aesthetics.
