French bedside chests are almost similar to the side tables. The only difference is that the bedside chest has one or more drawers, which can act as storage space for various small items in the home. But that is if you decide to go into details. When viewed superficially, a bedside chest is not different from a night table, bedside table or nightstand.
While French bedside chests were made using different designs, they served the same purpose. It is a small table with at least one shelf and draws. Some even have a small door in front. They are perfect decorative pieces of furniture, given that some have gold embellishments. If you find one today, you may want to use it for any or all of the following.
1. Holding Books and Electronics
