The current trends in modern bedroom furniture for the last few years have centered on simple, clean lines and curves and sharp cornered geometric shapes. Square shaped platform beds and crescent shaped nightstands are big sellers, as are simple little wall art hangings and accessories carefully dotted throughout the room. Although many people still insist on using night tables, with platform beds they are usually phased out and instead are extensions of the modern platform beds. Some of the platforms extend past the actual mattress and others do not, giving a more modest look to modern bedrooms. In some designs, modern platform bed feet are usually located close to the center of the platform, which seems to give the appearance of the head board and foot board along with the curved shape of the platform having a sophisticated, trendy aura.
With current trends in modern bedroom furniture today, most of the materials that are commonly used are plywood panels and solid timber in warm cherrywood and the very popular wenge finish, depending on the particular style that you are interested in for the room. Although for the last few years the desired look has been clean, crisp and sharp lines, it seems that this year curve is the buzz word. Curved wood panels are commonly used in modern bedrooms, giving them a unique and trendy chic look. A curved dresser, bureau or chest can not only be practical but can also add a unique and fresh flair to an otherwise simplistic room. Although current trends call for simple lines, as always, a room that does not have enough accessories in it just looks bare and unfinished.
One of the newest trends we have seen this season is a white decape finish with furniture, and the use of mirrors and glass can accentuate major colors of any modern bedroom furniture in a room. Mirrors and glass commonly cover the top of the dressers and night stands and are also used these days as a modern trendy finish to wardrobe doors. Everything from one piece lacquered pieces to patterned, all kinds of colors, shades, and sizes are popular this season including smoked, satined, bronzed and white, as previously had been mentioned. Smoke pattern mirrors can create a unique look especially when it is paired with wenge color for the furniture. Bronzed mirrors and glass are commonly paired with country style cherry wood. Finally, one of the current hot trends in modern bedroom furniture is to use break glass in a bronze color.
