I love the book-nerdiness of the Lectus side table by Josefin Hellström-Olsson. And not only can you stack books on top of it, but each book in the stack is also a cubby for extra storage, which is ever so thoughtful. I think a pair of these would make supercool nightstands. The table is allegedly for sale here, but the site doesn't seem to be cooperating right now.
