A side table adds functionality and convenience, providing a great place to set drinks and food, eyeglasses, the remote, and other items. Some people use them for lamps, floral arrangements, photos, and other decor items. Others use a stylish side table as a design element, either as a cohesive piece that brings the other furniture in the room together or for a unique pop of color. If you have a small space, you may be limited in size. However, these 12 side tables ensure that you won’t be limited in style and function, while also not breaking the bank, with selected pieces ranging in price from $100 to $450.

While it can be exciting to live in The City That Never Sleeps, you are not the city, and you do, indeed, need to sleep. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend at least seven hours of sleep per night. A good night’s sleep helps the body to rest and recuperate, and it even positively affects your mental health. However, work and family stress, unhealthy habits – and yes, living in The City That Never Sleeps – can all wreak havoc on your ability to sleep soundly. These are the best items you need to sleep well at night and awake refreshed the next day.

It doesn’t have to be Valentine’s Day to crave chocolate. But the sugar-coated holiday certainly provides a good excuse to indulge. Far beyond the red-wrapped drugstore box, creating the sweet (or bitter) treat is now recognized as a craft all its own. Chocolate purveyors range from the old-fashioned to the eco-conscious to makers who hand-mix exotic ingredients and flavors. If you’re really hooked, you can make an event of it at a chocolate-themed restaurant, factory tour, or private tasting. Whether you’re looking for a last-minute gift for someone special or just a sweet snack, the New York City establishments listed here have something for every chocolate lover–and you can order online or visit the source right in your borough.
