This is a bedside table that is made of mahogany, ebony details and Turkish tiles for the top surface. It has a hidden drawer underneath the cabinet that’s set back about 3”. Simply reach under, hope there aren’t any new and scary spider occupants and slide the drawer out. This is where James Bond 007 would keep his passport if he were in Turkey and he had the foresight to bring his bedside furniture with him.

-- Mark Twain said it best, "There is no such thing as an accident but rather the unhappy confluence of poor decisions made by one or more parties."

Super clean and nice choice of tile for the top, and like the handles, what is the white at the handles?

Well done and a nice design. I think however the secret is still safe. At least with me it is.

a bedside table…I thought it a small cabinet that might sit atop another piece of furniture…but what a fine creation…and beautiful tiles atop…don’t let james bond get anywhere near this…he’s kinda hard on furniture at times.
