Nightstands were originally designed to hold a basin and a pitcher of water on top, and a commode or “thunder mug” in the open lower area. The drawer in the middle held such personal items as might be needed. Over the centuries they have evolved to be a place where a bedside lamp can be placed along with an alarm clock, chargers for digital devices or similar items, or perhaps even a book. The central drawer is still a safe place for small items. The lower area sometimes has added drawers or enclosed shelves that can be used for storage.
