Whether you're in the market for an end table or a night stand, the moveable will no doubt eventually need to fulfill the qualities taht Readme by Peter Bockel already has built in. A bedside table is, in most examples, a surface on which to set a lamp and your current book, and this clever little object provides you with both aspects in the most useful way.

Not simply a flat surface, this playful piece of furniture provides you with a shelf, a place where novels feel right at home. Other items can be placed on top, doubling the area at your disposal, while the entire coated blue steel cap acts as a lampshade as well. A hidden wire climbs up the inner leg of Readme by Peter Bockel, giving the object the look of lighthearted simplicity and enchanting efficiency.
