Inspiring Bedside Tables...

I have been wanting a new bedside table for years as the one I have now is too small against the height of my bed and it continually bugs me. I love the creativity of this bedside stand I recently saw on Apartment Therapy, as it really works in the space. Particularly because of the height and color of that amazing light fixture. So I thought I'd see what other pics I could dig up for inspiration...

I've always been a fan of the non traditional bedside table. A chair, a ladder, an old file cabinet or stack of suitcases can do the trick just as easy. 

I personally like the idea of a drawer as I always have tons of magazines, books and journals piled up on my bedside table. But, as these pics show, less is often more. 

I'm also a fan of the shelf idea...and now I'm loving the wall mounted basket. Both offer the perfect solution to utilizing more floor space or creating more simplicity. 

How sweet and perfect is this bedroom? And I just love the idea of the big glass vessel with a few yard clippings. It adds height, beauty and drama that can change from week to week. I love, I love...

I'll always be a fan of anything Scandanavian influenced, like this side pouf to the left. To the right, an old English safe does the trick quite nicely. Now if I could only find what works best for my bedside table...at least now, I'm a little more inspired. Maybe you are too?
