The key to living in a small space is thinking vertically, using available wall space to add to your square footage and keep floors uncluttered. Take wall-mounted shelves—the latest in bedside storage—for example: The compact design frees up space while making use of an otherwise empty bedroom wall. Add a drawer to the shelf, as these 10 designers have, and the idea works even harder. Here’s a list of our current favorites.
Above: From Urbansize in London, the Floating Bedside Table in Beech has a single drawer and shelf below for storing flat objects such as books and magazines; $113.51 at Urbansize on Etsy. Above: The Kroft Buoy Floating Nightstand is available in white (shown), Watermelon (green), Salmon (pink), Pebble (grey), oak, and walnut. Prices start at $272 for the white nightstand to $414 for the walnut. Above: CB2’s Slice White Wall-Mounted Storage Shelf has a drawer integrated into its high-gloss lacquered wood frame; $169. It’s also available in Gray for the same price and in a Mirror surface for $269. Above: From Solid Wood Limited in Toronto, the Black Walnut Floating Nightstand has a single 12-inch-deep drawer; $470 from Solid Wood Limited on Etsy. Above: Another shelf from Urbansize: the Floating Bedside Drawer in white painted beech has a single deep drawer for $93.48. Above: The wall-mounted Bedside Console is made of solid maple by Pelle, a Brooklyn studio run by two Yale-trained architects. Intended as a catchall for the essentials, the compact design has a drawer and book slot, as well as a lidded box. It’s also made in walnut, and works well for front halls; $2,400 from Pelle (allow six to eight weeks for delivery). The console was also featured in our post 5 Favorites: Bedside Shelves (in Lieu of Tables). Above: FactoryTwentyOne in the UK makes a Midcentury-Style Floating Oak Nightstand made of oak veneer, ash wood, and brass hardware for $158.92 on its Etsy shop.
