Perfect Pairs: Nightstand & Sconce


The best nightstand and lamp pairings perfectly blend form and function: framing and complementing the bed to create the focal point of the room, while serving as a catch-all for personal items, books, the occasional glass of wine...

Sconces are particularly well-suited to bedside use, as their soft light can be directed only where needed, or angled away to diffuse the light, keeping the overall effect dim and relaxed.
