Marketplace: Night Stands

Now that the bed of my dreams is perfectly in place (minus the mattress, of course), I’m on the hunt for a pair of suitable nightstands. My bed is French, so I might opt for something French provincial in style (but plain-ish) to go with it…or something else.

What I’m discovering so far in my search is that (a) I’m very particular (too short, too tall, too skinny, too fat, too traditional, too modern), (b) new nightstands can be super pricey, and (c) finding a pair of vintage nightstands seems practically impossible.

That said, here are some versions that caught my eye and that might go with my bed (but not necessarily my budget…and I’d likely have to repaint them, too).

Design: The Sea Urchin

In addition to furry furniture, morrocan poufs and blankets, decorative urchins are invading homes across the country.

This is a design trend for those who want a permanent reminder of beachy living. The form and texture of these urchins are so interesting that they’re sort of just hard to resist. Am I¬†right?
