Tiffanie. Bedrooms. September 25th , 2017.
Floored on a newspaper rug, this charcoal-painted brick wall provides a strong background for an industrial palace. A low-lying futon and bevy of chandeliers add finishing touches. Pops of purple and blue rise against this feature wall. Clad in charcoal with lighter brown dripping through, it creates a cosy yet artistic feel amidst simple wooden shelving and wicker cane.
While low beds are famously associated with Japanese design, they‘re beginning to catch on in modern design circles - and for those whose knees can handle them, low beds have several benefits. First, starting the day with a deep stretch and mild workout can get the blood pumping to fight off grogginess, and the cool temperature near the floor is a major plus for hot sleepers. Some small bedrooms can gain a sense of spaciousness from a low-profile look. And if storage isn‘t a concern, removing empty space means one less place for dust to settle. Check out the inspirational beds below for even more reasons to consider going low!
A thin stencil creates a four poster harking back to Japanese-style, futon dreaming. A little thicker but still to the floor, this king poster bed relaxes a room of minimal features. A higher frame hangs geometric Chinese lanterns and a smaller, fabric-made bed. Using distressed materials adds an industrial feel, exacerbated as steel hover lamps peek through the sides of the frame.
Make the most of a curved skylight with a white brick wall underneath. This beautifully-lit room sets the scene with an abstract painting, oscillating wooden floor patterns and an easel to the side. The hipster would love this bedroom centred around distressed white brick. Paired with a ladder leading to a deconstructed wardrobe, its canvas chandelier marks a sleeping space beside a deerhide and record collection. A triangle marks the spot, in this brick feature wall marked with pure white. Set in an attic space, a low-lying bed draws the eye with a grey throw and black bedside lamp.
