Finding the Perfect Bedside Table for Your Bed

You’ve selected your ideal solid wood bed – perfect for relaxing in on lazy mornings – now you just need somewhere to put your mug of tea, hold your bedside lamp or store your bedtime reading! It’s time to search for the perfect bedside table for your bed.

Bedside Tables To Complement Our Ultra-low Beds:

At Natural Bed Company we offer a selection of ultra-low beds, including the Oregon or Ki Platform Beds, the Nevada & Sonora Beds and the Kobe & Kumo Japanese Style Beds. We have heard from our customers that really low bedside tables are hard to find – hence we now have a range of low level tables perfect to suit this collection of very low beds.

Firstly decide if you are looking for a side table that is a similar height to the height of your mattress, or if you prefer it to match the approximate level of your bed side rails (which sit under your mattress). As you can see from the images above – the low Cube Table (height 33cm) is a similar height to the top of the mattress placed on our Nevada or Sonora beds. While the Nevada Bedside Table, was designed to sit at the same height as the Nevada bed side-rails (just under 20cm). The Oregon Bedside Table (height 17cm) also matches the height of the side frame of the Oregon Bed.

Decide which look you prefer, if you prefer the taller table height (around the height of the top of the mattress) add the height from the floor to the top of the side rails to the depth of the mattress you are purchasing to find the table height you are looking for.

Alternatively you may be interested in the Frame side table which is a taller height at 48cm, but looks great used with our ultra-low Ki and Kobe beds, as it is designed to sit over the bed. The Madra (height 27cm) is another good choice for the low Ki, Koo, Kobe or Kumo beds as it’s simple geometric shape and elegant proportions suit beds with a ‘Japanese’ look.

Bedside Tables for a Medium-Low Bed:

We make two Kyoto tables – one with a shelf, the other with a handy drawer – to complement our Kyoto bed. The Kyoto is our most popular medium-low bed, the top of the side rails are approximately 28cm from the ground which means it’s around 45cm in height with a mattress on top (this varies depending on your mattress choice). The Kyoto tables are 36cm in height, a mid point between the top of the side rails and the top of the mattress. As you can see from the images below a pair of Kyoto side tables give this Japanese style bed a contemporary twist.

Other mid-low height tables available include the Sahara (made by Natural Bed Company at our workshops in Sheffield) and the Thin side table – made by Ethnicraft, this table has a solid oak top and stainless steel base. The Sahara table (shown above in solid beech with a solid white lacquer finish) – designed to match the top of the side rails of the Sahara bed – is just over 30cm in height. The Thin side table is a little bit taller at 35cm. The Thin table is shown above with our ultra-low Ki bed, where it sits along side the top of the mattress, but the Thin can be used with any of our low to medium height beds.

Perfect for a medium height bed:

If  you are looking for a bedside table to suit our slightly taller, medium height beds take a look at the mid height ‘Original Cube’ table. This version of the Cube bedside table is 50cm in height and looks great with our Malabar, Sahara, Tibet, Shetland and Zanskar beds. Along with the Natural Bed Company Cube collection, Ethnicraft also make a range of tables called ‘Cube’ – these tables (Height 45cm) are open units in three options: square, rectangle and long rectangle. These simple, modern tables work with any of our medium height contemporary beds. If you like the Ethnicraft style you may also want to take a look at the Naomi Kubus table (Height 42cm), it has a handy section for magazine storage.

The Tibet has it’s own matching bedside table, with chunky solid wood legs – the Tibet table is 40cm – just slightly taller than the top of the side rails on a Tibet bed (38cm). The Cochin is another bed with a matching bedside table, the Cochin table is 46cm in height and has elegant tapered legs.

Have a tall bed? Take a look at these bedside tables:

Our taller, classic beds have not been forgotten either – we have a number of taller bedside tables to suit our classic four-posters: the Oasis, Raj or Orchid beds, or to suit our slightly taller Zanskar and Shetland beds. Again there is a Cube table to suit, this time the Tall Cube table – it is 60cm in height and will sit at a similar height to the top of the mattress when paired with any of the beds mentioned above.

If you are looking for a more traditional, Shaker-style bedside table – take a look at our Seville or Bilbao bedside tables. These tall bedside tables are both 52cm in height (one has a shelf, the other a narrow drawer) with chunky wooden legs and a classic look.

We hope our collection of solid wood bedside tables will have the perfect bedside storage solution for you, however if you do find that you need something slightly shorter, taller, wider etc – please get in touch, we are often able to adjust our own designs to suit your needs.
