SHOP THE LOOK: CONTEMPORARY BEDROOM
Contemporary design is so often misunderstood; relegated to cold, hard and impersonal spaces. But with the right elements – like luxurious marble, soft textures, and warm wood furnishings – modern design can, in fact, be ultra-warm and inviting. We’ve gathered some of our favorite modern furniture pieces and accessories to create a bright and contemporary bedroom – all available to shop directly online.
STEP 1: START WITH THE MODERN COMFORTS
This Loloi Juneau Area Rug (US$42.00 – $1,807.00) is even more gorgeous in real life. It’s super soft to the touch, and the variation of the cut and loop piles make an interesting but subtle statement. Plus, to keep yours securely in place, we include a complimentary rug pad with every rug order.
STEP 2: REMEMBER MIXED & MATCHED = PERFECT
Here we’ve repurposed a pair of Hooker Furniture Curata Side Tables (US$639.00 each) as nightstands to create a statement. Their marble tops mimic the movement in the rug, and their warm oak finish offsets the cooler tones of other furniture pieces (yes, it’s ok to mix warm and cold finishes!). While they don’t have much storage, isn’t that the point with contemporary design? In this edit, less really is more!
STEP 3: FIND COMPLEMENTARY PIECES
We’d add Nuevo Living’s simple, tall Tivat Table Lamps (US$209.00 each) to really enhance the minimalist look, and balance out thie low headboard of Four Hands’ Aidan Bed (US$990.00 – $1,140.00). Shop for your mattress online, too – we stock Simmons, one of the leaders in mattress innovation and quality. With prices ranging from US$480.00 – $2,699.00, find the perfect mattress to suit your sleep preferences and your budget.
STEP 4: SOURCE AFFORDABLE ARTWORK
Hang Leftbank’s Concrete Series III and Concrete Series IV (US$299.00 each) horizontally over the bed, leaving 8” between the top of the headboard and the bottom of the frame, and 3” in-between the two pieces of art. Not only a mega-bargain for contemporary artwork, the prints’ superfine silver floater frames enhance their contemporary nature even further, and their neutral color palette reflects each of the other elements in the room.
STEP 5: MAKE A STATEMENT WITH GREAT GREYS
A chunky metal base and recessed handles on Moe’s Home Naples Dresser (US$1,575.00) are about as contemporary as it gets. Plus, these are unique design details that set this dresser apart from other options. If using in a guest or child’s bedroom, consider having a glass top made on-island to prolong the life of the piece.
Get this Modern Bedroom for only US$5,250.00 (excluding importation costs).
