The perfect wrought iron bed
What to Look for in Your Perfect Bed: Top Interior Designers Offer Advice
Individuals shopping for a bed and mattress know it can be a daunting task, as they must consider comfort, style and budget. Top interior designers understand that it is one of the most personal selections they help their clients make and offer some advice in finding that perfect match.
When it comes to mattress selection, designers certainly agree that personal comfort is key. However, an important consideration that many neglect is the depth of a mattress. “Some mattresses are enormously deep. They can be very heavy and therefore make setting a bed cumbersome. Keep in mind that mattress thicknesses affect the bed height. I like to keep mattress heights around 24-27″ above the floor.”
“The bigger and higher the bed the smaller the room feels
It’s recommended a “low profile” bed so clients “don’t need a ladder to crawl into bed.”
For those considering a lower profile mattress solution, offers their range of platform mattresses. The four styles range in firmness but each features quality craftsmanship and is covered by the comfort exchange policy with a 20 year limited warranty so customers can relax and take comfort in their investment.
Choosing the right style bed can be exhausting as there are so many choices. Designer suggests that shoppers think about classic design. “Design trends come and go, but when purchasing a bed, you’ll want something that you can live with for years. Select a style that makes a statement without overpowering the room made with quality materials.
For example, a four poster bed or an upholstered headboard with simple detailing creates a timeless focal point while the accessories can be changed to refresh the space for years.” The simple lines and classic wrought iron speak to this advice and provide a dynamic frame for any room.
“Give me drama when selecting a bed, something that anchors the room and gives it a sense of style”. I love upholstered headboards especially with nailhead trim or four poster beds; they really make a statement.” The ultra-luxe Wing bed from Charles P. Rogers features this powerful aesthetic with its sumptuous leather headboard and hand applied nail head detailing.
“I prefer headboards and bed frames that are clean-lined and not fussy,” continues Robinson. “I prefer beds that show off their legs rather than beds with skirts. A wood frame around a fabric headboard tends to dress it up a bit.” The Newhouse platform bed features a contemporary look with its supple yet refined leather headboard and Mahogany rails.
