Bedside tables are a piece of furniture that can experience a lot of wear and tear. As with any furniture purchase, it’s important to consider the quality of the material, especially when seeking durability and longevity. After all, furniture is an investment. Here is a useful breakdown of durable materials commonly used for bedside tables.

Solid Wood

Oak, maple, pine and mango win points for both durability and beauty. Their knots, cracks and grain introduce a hint of nature and a rustic feel to the bedroom. A perfect representation of this is the Chateauneuf Rustic Bedside Table, which is crafted from reclaimed pine. Style with neutral accessories, such as lamps and vases, for a chic countryside feel.


Perfect for those of us who are clumsy, metal can withstand spillages and knocks, whilst also having a sleek and clean aesthetic. Choose steel or iron for guaranteed durability and resistance to dents and scratches. To add a touch of signature French Bedroom elegance to a metal bedside table, add fresh flowers and a scented candle or diffuser.


The Palais de Versailles Gold Console Table (Small) is the epitome of glamour and is perfect for those who have a little more bedroom space to fill. With handmade gold gilt legs carved from mahogany, this console table is topped with marble. The marble top is both heavyweight and durable, meaning it will last for years to come, while the nature of the material is great for keeping your bedtime glass of water cool, or your morning coffee warm.
