Product Spotlight: Jolanda Bedside Table

The Jolanda Bedside Table in solid oak is the perfect piece of furniture for any Scandi or Mid-Century Modern inspired bedroom. Drawing on the tones from the natural wood, this bedside table easily adds style and elegance to any room. The top surface, drawer/s and shelf provide ample space for a lamp, those books you’ve been meaning to read, glasses, phone, and even some accessories to pull the room design together. 

The Joland bedside table is available in both a single and double drawer configuration. 


Initial Concept

The concept for the Jolanda beside table was simplicity - a statement piece of furniture in the Scandinavian style that could seamlessly sit with any of our Jolanda beds. A space to house books, a lamp or even accessories while being a beautiful piece of furniture which would add to, not detract from the style of your home. The initial idea for the Jolanda beside 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 bedside 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.

The Jolanda range is also available in Solid Walnut 

What to Furnish With?

To create a truly comfortable and stylish bedroom, the Jolanda bedside table can be furnished with one of our Jolanda bed frames and the Jolanda 4 drawer chest. These solid oak pieces match perfectly and allow you to easily furnish a bedroom with furniture designed to inspire comfort and a good night’s sleep. Depending on who’s bedroom is it - we recommend one beside table to accompany a single or king single, and two bedside tables with a double, queen and king bed in order to create simple symmetry - and ensure everyone has somewhere to keep things nice and handy.

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.
