A Perfect Imbalance

This design is a testimony to the fact that you do not always need symmetry to achieve harmony in design. Bedside tables on either side of the bed, although same in design, are different in terms of size in order to make the most of available space. The smaller bedside table is used for all things pretty – a vase with fresh flowers, a picture frame and a stray book.  The extended bedside table on the other side is used to stack daily reads  and drawers come in handy to keep other essentials.
