Hunt for a side table with storage

I have been approached to source a contemporary white gloss side table with a space for books, magazines and laptop. Not a coffee table, please! And ideally open shelf but no visible storage and no drawer. Today I’ve been¬†searching the internet and also contacted my suppliers to see what’s available for next week delivery. A piece of cake, I thought. By midday, I was getting little bit frustrated. Soooo not so easy! Either it’s not in stock with delivery up to 7 weeks! Or available but too small or different colour. So annoying. Anywho.. here is what I found so far. I hope she will go for one of these because I’m seriously running out of places where to source one from. And did I mention that the budget is around ¬£100? So Kartell, Bo Concept, Conran etc are out.

1. Hooper from

And here it is in situ..

Price: £99 

My number one choice. Great for contemporary interior. Unfortunately they haven’t got the white in stock, only walnut. Still could be an option.

2. S – table from Dwell

Even though the bottom part is open from the sides if you put the table with the book facing a wall, you still have an access to it but no one will see what’s there. The top shelf can be for decorative objects or magazines.

Price: £129

3. Notch shelf side table also from Dwell


I like this one too. It’s available now, high gloss finish, storage. Almost ticks all the boxes.

Price: on sale now for £89

4. Bumble side table from Habitat

I know this one might seem little bit of a wide card but look, it’s a available, it’s white, it’s modern and it has a storage shelf. and a laptop would fit in it. And the price..

Price: £69!

Decisions, decisions. Which one will it be?

Stay tuned. I will keep you updated.
