Today in bet-you-didn’t-know-that: Nightstands were originally made for holding CHAMBER POTS. Aren’t you glad you live in a world with flushing toilets? And modern nightstands that are just for holding your phone and a glass of water and, IDK, a lamp?

Aside from your bed, which you use to sleep, which you need to live, nightstands are definitely one of the most important pieces of bedroom furniture you can own. Where else will you rest your laptop to binge-watch House of Cards in bed? Or store all that random junk you have no where else to put?
