"I can't say that I go for the typical night table — I like to be creative," says Toronto designer Karen Cole. "I aim for clutter-free and pretty bedside arrangements, but still find a way to keep it functional. I need and appreciate organized storage. The surface area on the top of this chest of drawers in my own bedroom is very limited, just enough for the lamp and something pretty. But the drawers offer up many options to stash stuff!"
