Product Spotlight: Bruno 1 Drawer Bedside Table

The Icon By Design Bruno one drawer bedside table has solid oak used everywhere except on the rear and side panes which are veneered to match the frame. The drawer operates on carved wooden runners to create ease of use and a piece of furniture that will last for decades, if not generations. Designed to hold space for everything you need to have in or on your bedside table, the Bruno one drawer contains a top, a shelf and one drawer for additional storage and to hide away items that may detract from your decor or are not needed everyday. 

The Bruno bedside table is also available in a two drawer configuration and in walnut for a darker wood tone to match your home design. 

Initial Concept

The initial concept for the Bruno one drawer bedside table was convenience - a beautiful, solid piece of solid timber furniture that provided space for everything you need close at hand in your bedroom, while being stylish too.

The initial idea for the Icon by Design Bruno one drawer bedside table combines form and function with their proud tradition of valuing the authenticity of materials to craft quality furniture, designed for living. 

Sourcing of Materials

We work hard to ensure that we’re always producing sustainable furniture. For example, the solid American oak which makes up the bulk of the Jolanda beside table  is sourced from American forests which embrace sustainable principles - meaning the wood is sustainably harvested, works to restore the ecosystem, implements a replaning process, undertakes consistent environmental monitoring, and respects the land rights of indigenous peoples.


We also use oak because it's hardy and it lasts - it has a natural strength which makes it ideal for the interior home environment. Unlike veneered furniture, there's less damage from wear and tear so you don't have to throw it out to replace it with something equally replaceable. 

Our solid wood furniture is a provider of carbon storage and therefore has a positive effect on the planet by containing carbon, and its regrowth in sustainable managed forests adds to the carbon emission reduction. 

By crafting our solid American oak furniture, such as the Jolanda beside table, from wood we are doing the best we can on the planet - making pieces that last through the generations and rejecting the tread of flat-pack, cheap, disposable, replaceable veneer furniture.

What to Furnish With?

Create a seamlessly elegant bedroom by combining the Bruno one drawer bedside table with the Bruno bed frame and Bruno four drawer chest. Furnishing your bedroom with furniture pieces designed to work together will ensure you easily put together a Scandi-inspired room. From there it’s simple to add linens, rugs. lighting and accessories which provide texture, layers and even colours to build a comfortable space for rest and relaxation. 

What works well with Bruno?

Choose a Bruno bed frame as the centrepiece for your Scandi bedroom and you will be well placed to create a long lasting sanctuary. The Bruno bed frame is available in a single, king single, double, queen or king size to accommodate everyone’s level of comfort while sleeping as well as the available space in the room. These frames are made of solid oak timber and designed to last for generations. 

Extra storage is always a fantastic idea in a bedroom - somewhere to keep off-season clothing and even extra bed linen - which is why the Bruno four drawer chest is the perfect pairing with a Bruno one drawer bedside table. All the wearing and structural components of this item are made from Solid Timber making this product far stronger, heavier and of a much higher quality than others available on the market. The inset handles are designed to streamline the piece and ensure there’s no accidental catching on handles as you move around the bedroom. 

Introduction to Icon By Design

At Icon By Design, we don’t think we should spend our brief time on earth making disposable things. So we build our furniture to last a long time, with a focus on natural, sustainable materials and craftsmanship. And we design our furniture to be minimal, elegant and timeless. Because we believe if you build a piece of furniture that is timeless, the moments that happen around it will be timeless as well. The furniture will hold an emotional value, above and beyond the dollar value. We’re not just making furniture, we’re making conversations and moments. We’re making our relationships richer. We’re making our moments more memorable. It’s not a table, it’s Boxing Day 2021. It’s not a media shelf, it’s “Kind of Blue” on a winter’s night. It’s not a chair, it’s the way your daughter sits when studying. Icon By Design isn’t simply a place where quality furniture is created. It’s where stories are made.
