Having a nightstand in your bedroom is one of the best ways to improve how well you utilize your space. You may use your nightstand to store items on the shelves or drawer, and to hold lamps. Instead of buying modern furniture, you may want to buy 1920s nightstands.
1920s nightstands were made in the art deco fashion. Therefore, they have unique characteristics that can help you to distinguish and easily identify them. The following are some of the things to look for from art deco nightstands:
One of the main features of 1920s nightstands is that they were made from exotic woods, lacquer, and materials. Besides the furniture pieces’ main framework, they featured rosewood, zebrawood, and Macassar ebony inlays. The furniture had japanned lacquer to give them a greater sense of elegance.
Besides the exotic wood inlays and Japanned lacquer, 1920s nightstands often had finishing in geometric shapes like zigzag, stars, sunbursts, animal forms, and floral patterns. Some had additional embellishments such as mother of pearl and ivory.
Typical 1920s nightstands have shelves with a small door or drawers for storing smaller items and holding items like medication, drinks, tissues, eyeglasses, cell phones, reading materials, and table lamps. They sit beside the bed to make it more convenient for you to use your interior space.

The size of the nightstand should go hand-in-hand with the amount of space you have. If your bedroom is tiny, then having a small nightstand is the way to go. Similarly, a large bedroom should have a larger nightstand.

It gets boring when an interior design style utilizes common elements such as the same wood, same furniture style, etc. However, having different decorative elements in the same space can be refreshing. For example, you could place a metal lamp on top of a wooden nightstand or a ceramic vase on a metal nightstand.
Sometimes all you need to decorate a nightstand is a well-selected flower vase. Flowers provide a unique smell, look, and feel that breaks up the color scheme in the room. For 1920s nightstands, matching with a glass art deco flower vase is usually the best option.
If you can’t decorate a 1920s nightstand any other way, use it to hold bedside lights. Having a lamp near the bed makes it more convenient to flick on or off whenever there’s the need. You may try a metallic angular lamp to create an industrial impression.
