At the heart of every great bedroom is undoubtedly a fabulous bed that steals the spotlight, sets the tone for the rest of the room and drapes you in opulence as you sleep away your aches and woes. There is no shortage of such amazing beds at Salone del Mobile 2016, with brands such as Bontempi and García Sabaté showcasing super-cool beds that are both contemporary and comfortable. One can notice a clear influence on minimal designs on all these bed frames, with platform beds outshining others at the event.
If saving up precious square footage in your small bedroom is a priority, then it is hard to find a nightstand that is far more efficient than one that is wall-mounted. Floating nightstands with a box-like design are a hot trend this season and you can easily add one to the bedroom without undertaking a major redecorating project. The best part about it is that even the forgotten corner next to the bed on the far side can also now feature a cool nightstand that also adds to the overall aesthetic.
While antique screens and room dividers might not be ideal for contemporary bedrooms, both in terms of practicality and style, one can still draw plenty of inspiration from them. Much like the classic Shoji screens and room dividers used in Japanese design, a perforated wooden room divider is a great option that adds natural warmth to the bedroom. It can easily delineate the bedroom from the living space or home office next to it without blocking light. Simple floating wooden panels offer a more solid solution, while a screen inspired by Mediterranean style offers more artistry and visual flair.
