Bed Design Where it Belongs: In the Bedroom
Most furniture manufacturers display their beds in showrooms or against blank white spaces. That doesn’t give us a real idea of how they interact with bedroom interior design, making it hard to picture them in our own spaces.
Until you get the bed in the bedroom, it may look contemporary, cozy and cool but might ultimate mismatch your interior space. As these ten pictures illustrate, furniture design is not just about the bed-as-object but about the bedrooms-as-context in which these designs are placed.
Presotto Italia presents these design ideas in a gallery context. On the plus side, this helps a potential purchaser to evaluate a bed as part of a large whole before buying one. On the down side, you have to remain realistic: does your own home bedroom interior design – from the architecture and colors right down to the decor – look as impressive as the ones in these photos? Will a rounded headboard or entirely circular frame match with right-angle bedroom walls?
One Size and Style Fits All, or None? Kids, twin, queen or king – modern rectangular to contemporary round – each of these wood and metal-frame bed-and-mattress sets is photographed within an existing interior setting to match it in terms of color and style, then covered with bedding sets (including blankets, comforters and pillows) to likewise create a consistent design scheme.
Beds and Bedroom Design in Context: In the showroom, black, green, pink, purple and red might all look like good options at first for a matched bed frame and linen set, but will the duvet match the drapes (to paraphrase and sanitize the common saying)? Full-feature luxury only works when there is a room to make it worthwhile. Furniture is just one aspect of interior decorating and design, so if you have a small or loft bedroom you might want to skip the round options, for example, since they displace more space.
