Another good reason to have a table at your bedside is to hold books. A set of decorative bookends makes an ideal accent for a nightstand and keeps bedtime reading close at hand. If this leaves little room on the surface for a bedside lamp, use wall mounted lighting with a shade which angles the light down and towards the reader.
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.
