Antique bedside tables are versatile pieces of furniture, which can be a welcome practical or decorative addition to any home. They perform the obvious function beside a bed but can double as side or sofa tables in a living room. Wallrocks collection of 18th and 19th century antique bedside tables offers a beautiful quality range of Louis XV, Louis XVI, Empire, Art Deco and Provincial bedside cabinets, in both formal and informal styles. Sourced overseas in original condition, every piece purchased from Wallrocks comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Bedside tables were originally known as nightstands, and as the word would suggest they were commonly used beside the bed offering a convenient place to leave a candle or oil lamp during the night. The trend persevered and it would be rare to see a bedroom that did not include bedsides as part of the furniture suite, however in modern day Australia it is now a more common sight to see a book and a mobile phone where the candle once was!
Most antique bedside tables feature a table top, often marble, and at least one drawer and a shelf, or a drawer over cupboard, or a bank of two to three drawers. They would customarily come in matching or matched pairs to be placed at either side of a bed. We are finding that many people will also use good quality well decorated bedsides as cabinets, or occasional tables in the living areas of the home.
