For a unique contemporary twist, I like the idea of eliminating a bedside table and placing one of these cool chairs. Helios is a modern chair designed by Spigoli Vivi. It's possible to use this chair as a nightstand because the chair’s seat is flat and there is a light in the chair’s back. The chair is made entirely of wood and is an uncomplicated and very simple and modern design. This is a piece of furniture that serves several purposes at once. It would also work well in a small living space where space is at a premium.
