White bedside tables – our pick of the best

10 images

The humble bedside table is a busy piece of furniture, providing perching space for lighting, an alarm clock and reading matter, or stretching to shelves, drawers or cupboards for more substantial storage. And white will always get noticed. Go for a pair and they will make a star of a central bed, bringing order and balance to a decorating scheme. Seek out matching wardrobes and chests of drawers for full-on co-ordination or go mismatching for a more relaxed feel. Hi-gloss curving designs are tailormade for contemporary bedrooms, while you may prefer to look for painted, vintage-style, distressed or shabby-chic pieces if your room has something of the country cottage about it.
