Nightstands are usually over looked, or to be honest, its really a place to put a glass or water or where an empty bag of chips rests after a long night out….Well this caught our attention. There is even a little video, pretty rad. Go check em out!

PIN–UP: THE NIGHTSTANDS at Phillips de Pury & Company | May 14–24, 2011

The Nightstands – For many of us, the bedroom is a carefully staged place for relaxation, escape and seduction. Yet among the lush bedding, meticulously chosen accents, and soothing aromas there is often a forgotten little piece of furniture: the nightstand. Battered, overflowing with debris, the drawers half open? Buried under a mountain of books and magazines? The nightstand betrays more about our character than we might realize! But ideally, as we switch off the light at night, shouldn’t the last thing upon which the eye settles bring a final swell of satisfaction to the day? Felix Burrichter, founder of PIN-UP, invited a stable of twelve U.S.-based artists, architects, and designers to recast this most elemental and intimate of bedtime companions: ArandaLasch, Rafael de Cárdenas with Evan Gruzis, Jim Drain, Paul Kopkau, Paul Lee, Shawn Maximo, Richard Phillips, Leon Ransmeier, Rich Brilliant Willing, RO/LU, SITU Studio and Michael Stipe.
