Who knew such a seemingly minor piece of furniture could mean so much to us? The nightstand is the “butler” of all stands, always by our side, drawers full of essentials, and nearby at the ready with a good book (or iPad), a cool glass of water, and a lamp that’s situated just an arms reach away. It’s easy to see how something so small can offer such big returns, so why not honor this “Mr. French” of decor with a creative twist like these nifty nightstand below.
