Bedside Tables

Last week I ordered a pair of these lovely bedside tables for our master bedroom from a small British furniture maker in Sussex called Factory Twenty One. They do a nice range of small tables, and a few wooden home accessories. Their ‘mission’ : to make ‘affordable, easily shipped and eco-friendly house-hold products’. 

As they are a small company, they kindly accepted my request for a customised order to slightly modify the wood finish.  I asked them if they could make the drawer unit out of ash to match the legs rather than walnut. We don’t have any dark wood in the room, so it would have been slightly at odds with the bed (ash) and the floorboards (eventually white washed pine).

Like the radiators, they too are on a bit of a lead time (4-6 weeks), but I am hoping they will arrive before my next guests!

In addition to deciding on the bedside tables,  I’m sure you will all be delighted to hear that we also decided on the laundry basket. After my extensive hunt to find a stylish laundry basket we ended up going for the bargain rope basket from Dunelm which actually feels of much higher quality than the price I am pleased to report! The only issue is that it didn’t come with a lid (despite a somewhat mis-leading image on the website) which would have been tidier.
