Since moving, I have been trying to source the perfect bedside table. This alls happens in my imagination, of course, as the post-trip budget is a little meagre. Surprisingly, there's just not a lot out there that I like. The exception to this is the incredible bedside table by Josefun Hellstrom-Olsson which makes my heart flutter. A stack of books! For other books to be squirelled away in!
This one, although less artsy, is a practical and very effective use of space - and my mind likes the separated categories, too. (One for literature! Nerd puzzles! House magazines! Thesis drafts! etc)
This one intrigued me - I haven't decided what I think about it, but I like the idea of a bedside table working as a quasi-tray for a cheeky cup of tea, too.
In the meantime, this recessionista will make do with the very small Ikea stool and upside-down washing basket for the Pal...
