Pick a metallic for a cool, unexpected take on the nightstand. Bonus points: You can artfully store extra books and objects underneath.


Skip the heavy ceramic pot and go with a lighter foundation for your lush greenery. (Just add a catchall underneath when watering your plants.)

We love the graphic lines of the basket, especially when it’s flipped and used as a pendant light. The electrical wire and bulb in matching pink complete the look.
