Combine open and closed storage.
"I like a table that feels a bit open but has some concealed storage," says Toronto designer Melody Duron. "Some fresh flowers, a little dish for jewelry, a water glass and a water carafe are always on my own bedside table. I like the idea of books and magazines being somewhat put away so the top remains uncluttered. And I prefer wall-mounted sliding lights like these from Toronto's Lampcage."
