Contemporary bedroom furniture in wood has been making a comeback for the last few years, as ever led by Italian brands like Bimax, Jesse Furniture & SMA Mobili. The trend we have noticed over the last two years or so is that bleached oaks & light oaks are out & white or coloured painted ash & oak are in. The colour of a lacquered ash/oak is a solid colour, but the texture of the wood grain is visible, which can seem a little softer than a normal lacquer, & can look slightly more interesting, especially with the current movement towards more organic, natural finishes. Bedside cabinets & chests of drawers in these finishes are versatile too – they look fantastic with upholstered beds, but could go with wood, lacquer & even metal too.
We are also seeing bedroom furniture in canaletto walnut, a soft, versatile wood finish that works really well with paler fabrics. Dark oak bedroom furniture is still going strong as well, although it needs to be used with care. In a bedroom with a white bed & white walls it can look stunning, but darker rooms aren’t suited to it.
As our bedroom furniture is made by the companies who make our other contemporary furniture it is also possible to introduce useful items like bookcases & wall units into the bedroom, & of course our bedroom furniture manufacturers also make bedroom wardrobes in these finishes too. Our design experts can help you understand which pieces go with which too, so everything can be beautifully colour co-ordinated.
