The origin of the nightstand is sadly unromantic. In the days before indoor toilet facilities, many households had cabinets beside the bed to enclose a chamber pot for use during the night, hence original night stands all feature a cupboard. Modern night stands, in contrast, may consist of drawers, shelves, or simply a surface designed to hold a clock, bedside lamp and glass of water.
Most of these tables are made of wood since a lot of them have drawers where one can temporarily store and keep within easy reach items like socks, wallets, cell phones, medicine bottles, books, alarm clock, and other things that one might need during the night, before going to sleep or after waking up. The best place to put the slippers is always under the bed but some prefer to keep them under nightstands where they are easier to locate.
For laid back individuals, shabby-chic nightstands are perfect. The soft off-white color of this style can give your room a casual feel. Of course, you can expect this style to look old and outdated. Well, that is exactly what shabby chic is all about. You get a piece of furniture that has chips in the wood or different colors showing through the paint. Usually, this style is used with other pieces of furniture that have a cottage style. These furniture pieces still come with drawers and shelves for your odds and ends.
