As we enter Autumn and the run-up to Christmas we start to plan for accommodating guests over the holiday season. This can mean taking another look at the guest bedroom to ensure it’s tidy and welcoming, ordering new bedroom furniture or updating the mattress, bedding and towels.
We think this why we get so many enquiries for our solid wood bedside cabinets and chests of drawers at this time of year. Extra storage for yourself or guests is always useful. With this in mind we thought we’d write a quick review of our collection of wooden bedside cabinets – so you can easily see which designs would suit your bedroom and provide the extra storage you need.
Modern ‘Cube’ Style Bedside Drawer Units
These stylish bedside drawer units are our most popular choice – they are available in solid walnut, oak, ash, cherry, maple, beech and pine. They are also available in three sizes, so you’re sure to find an option to suit your bed height. The Tall Cube is W 50 x D 35 x H 60cm, the Original Cube is W 50 x D 35 x H 50cm, the Low Cube is W 50 x D 35 x H 33cm. Each Cube table has a useful slim drawer and lower shelf.
These Cube tables are made at our workshops in Sheffield and the proportions can be adjusted a little on request. The lead-time for these hand-made nightstands is usually 5-6 weeks. Contact us to discuss your requirements and to request timber samples.
Black Lotus ‘Cube’ Units
We have two bedside cabinets in the Black Lotus Cube collection. This range is made in solid oak exclusively for Natural Bed Company, by a small family business in Vietnam. We generally have stock of these items and can therefore send them out to you in a matter of days (delivery can take 1-2 weeks depending on the carrier and access)
The two options in this range are a compact two drawer unit and a low, wide single drawer unit:
The oak 2-Drawer Bedside Unit is W 40 x D 35 x H 50cm (£340 each)
Other information: Drawer front depth – 12cm, internal drawer depth approximately 6cm, space between the drawer and bottom ‘shelf’ is approximately 15cm.
