An easy way to immediately add thoughtful flair to your bedroom is the addition of furniture at the foot of your bed. Don’t worry, it won’t clutter your bedroom; in fact, it’ll add both storage space and personality to your decor. The choices you have aren’t just limited to a chest or trunk at the end of your bed either.
Our modern classic pieces are immensely versatile with impeccable craftsmanship and look fantastic at the foot of our beds (come down to our Modern Classics Gallery at City Square Mall level 3 to view and try for yourself!)Try a slat low bench- you can sit and read as well as use it as a book bench for those books. It’s also dead handy to put your linens down on when you are changing bed sheets or even to keep your extra blankets on. It’ll come naturally for you to place your folded laundry on it for putting away as well. Our Rhyza Bench inspired by George Nelson’s 1946 design of a platform bench possesses an easy mobility and a timelessly vogue, architectural design with its unique harp-shaped legs. The slats also transform a space; light spills into through the slats and create beautiful, interesting patterns.
Trust us: you’ll really appreciate that bench at the foot of your bed when packing or unpacking your suitcase after your travels! Our Rhyza Bench comes in 3 different lengths, an optional glass top and your choice of gorgeous wood for the top from engine walnut, ash, American maple, white oak and American walnut so you can pretty much customize your own bench to your bed.
Something else we love for the feet of our beds is also from our Modern Classics range- our Grande Bench inspired by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Barcelona design and which looks and feels unabashedly luxe thanks to its leather upholstery despite its spare, minimalist style. Our Arcelli Ottoman that complements the Arcelli Lounge Chair, with its uniquely sinuous X-frame inspired by the Barcelona Chair, would also take up the style quotient of your bedroom a few notches.
Instead of a bench, you can also place two stools at the end of your bed. However, if you find that it is heaps more practical (and economical) to have a full bench instead, our Loaf Bench, inspired by Jasper Morrison’s Mobile Bench design, would look perfectly at home in galleries, museums and entrance areas. The boxy bench manages to be discreet without being nondescript so as not to compete with the exhibits. Upholstered in black leather with a steel base, the Loaf Bench’s clean lines, versatility and effortless compatibility also make it a great addition to your bedroom.
Something as compact, comfortable and mobile as our Lynelle Ottoman, inspired by Grant Featherston’s Contour Chair and Ottoman, is pretty perfect. The tufted upholstery also lends your space further interest and character. The Lynelle Ottoman comes in your choice of solid ash, beech, maple, white oak or American walnut legs for you to match to your flooring.
Another alternative is a more classic quilted ottoman, such as our Le Corbusier's Cubik Ottoman, that will put the area of the foot of your bed (as well as your entire bedroom) squarely in the domain of pretty and functional.
Who knew that space at the end of your bed was quite this exciting?
