Bedside table manners with Plumo

After years of defiantly being a bag lady, I've been convinced the way ahead is to move in with my boyfriend. An essential condition of our cohabitation? Getting a good pair of bedside tables.

You may argue a sofa or a dining table is more domestically useful but let me explain. In our slightly Morecambe and Wise-esque relationship, the bedside table is an absolute essential for keeping a book or a paper close to hand, ready to be picked up when one of us is huffing or - more likely in my case - just won't shut up.

After renting Ikea-filled accommodation for years, I've been hankering after something a bit different. And I've been daydreaming about this Danish teak cabinet from Plumo since I spotted it for Retro To Go.

With its dark wood and simple shape, it fits perfectly into my fantasy decorating scheme for the flat and looks like it could even date back to the Morecambe and Wise era. It's got a drawer too, so useful for storing things like books, glasses and possibly a pipe (though that might be taking the comparison a step too far).

At £209 per cabinet, I've a feeling that price might cause our first in-bed squabble. However, if my dear boyfriend wants a peaceful night's sleep, I think he'll know what he needs to invest in...


  1. Hmmm, I love the shape of it but personally I'm not sure about the colour. Hope you get your boyfriend to agree on buying them tho :)

  2. Ah,thank you! I'm going to try my hardest! I'm quite a fan of dark wood and it'll should fit well with the few bits I have already.

  3. I love the mid-century vibe of these, but the price...ouch.

  4. These are lush! Gorgeous but way too pricey for me.

  5. Ah, this would be so so perfect in our bedroom. But that price is a bit prohibitive! Am always seeing lovely things on Plumo that are just perfect for the house, until I find out the price...
