My nightstands are pretty and functional while being a very romantic addition to the bedroom.
BUT did you know ...
"Before indoor flushing toilets became commonplace, the main function of a nightstand was to
contain a chamber pot. As a result, early nightstands were often small cabinets, sometimes fitted
with a drawer, and usually containing an enclosed storage space below covered by one or more
doors. Another term sometimes given to such cabinets was commode."
I actually just saw one recently on a favorite TV show of mine Salvage Hunters.
The drawer pulled out and it was in the shape of a toilet seat. Can you imagine?
Anyhow there are no commodes in my pretty night stands.
Be sure to check out the SHOWROOM page for the new additions.
