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.
