Through Crib Candy's wists, I found a few eye-catching pieces from Motif Modern Living. The furniture store, whose motto is "modern style. modest price", is south of Austin not far from the San Marcos outlet mall and offers a variety of contemporary and modern furniture. This Metro Nightstand ($219) has "an oak veneer with a charcoal roll-coat lacquer finish....The smoked glass top gives a sophisticated and elegant look. Features dual surfaces and a drawer for convenient storage, board-on-frame construction, and tapered die-cast metal handles."
Similar designs--the Low Platform Side Table ($229) and the Niche Door Side Table ($169)--are available through the internet shop at West Elm.
