Artisanal bedrooms, famous brands, with traditional or innovative design: browse the catalogue to discover the design and quality of our bedrooms, italian bedroom furniture at its best.
The bedroom is the room of the house that most represents our intimacy: our guests can also use our bathroom, but the bedroom is only ours. Of course we'll want to show it when it's new, wanting to share it with relatives and friends, but the bedroom is the principle scenario of sleep, of dressing-stripping, and of the most intimate moments with our partners.

Beds are of course the heart of bedrooms (no pun intended).
We can divide beds into categories according to materials used, classic and modern taste and design, and the availability of the storage box option. We can find all sorts of materials among both modern beds and classic beds: wooden beds, lacquered beds, upholstered beds (also called textile beds), leather or belting leather beds, wrought iron beds...differences between styles are just about intepretations of design.
Modern wooden beds can be made of cherry, light oak, dark oak (or wengp colored), grey oak, teak, ovangkol, walnut; classic wooden beds are instead more often made of walnut or cherry.
The laquered modern beds are coming back in vogue after they lived "bad times" at the end of '80s beginning of '90s. Thus lacquered beds came back, mostly with opaque laquer (glossy laquer has higher costs), with black and white as most represented colors. Laquer for classic beds is usually an open pore laquer on woods as oak, ash, pine and fir; the wood grain is not covered in order to get that country taste which effectively conveys the personality of wood and its lively colors.
The modern interpretation of an upholstered bed is now 30 years old: it's with Nathalie, designed by Vico Magistretti, which Flou becomes a famous business case and upholstered beds have a growing success for the next 20 years (bear in mind that we are not retailers of Flou beds and we do quote their brand only to value their role in design history). The basic concept is simple: a textile bed allows designers and customers to play with both shapes and colors, because fabric offers an even more extensive choice than laquers and woods...moreover the use of removable covers allows to renew the whole aesthetics of the bedroom for just a low or moderate price.
A possible variation to the theme of textile/upholstered beds are those collections made of leather or belting leather.
From a stylistic point of view leather beds refer to fabric ones because leather and fabric are equally managed in terms of craftmanship, suitable for proper upholstery work on specific sections of items. Belting leather beds on the other hand tend to show more modern and squared shapes as belting leather itself and its processing procedure to require it; there are in fact several models of wooden beds that have belting leather as an option. Especially effective on belting leather beds are contrasting "negative" seams. While beds made of normal upholstered leather often offer large samples with various shades of color, belting leather beds are most often presented in more defined colors as black, brown-coffee, red, burgundy, white, cream-magnolia,...
Wrought iron beds are more often associated with traditional shapes and country life. The processing of iron and the crafting mastery allow manufacturers to model iron in shapes not achievable with other materials. Liberty/Noveau or floreal or abstract decorations create vast opportunities for beds that will certainly have an artistic value of their own. Wrought iron beds can be made with or without footboard, and painted in different colors "iron color", pastel and glossy shades, a type of painting that superimposes different colors...

There are also beds features that cross over with materials.
Storage box beds have been existing for a long time but it's only in recent years that they had massive success to meet the chronic need for additional space typical of small rooms... Simply put it's an orthopedic frame that rises allowing access to a very comfortable space to store bags, duvets, or seasonal goods to be store. Hydraulic pistons make opening and closing easy and safe; the bottom of a storage box bed is divided into 2 or 4 panels with special handles to facilitate the regular cleaning of the floor below.
A note about different formats. The standard italian style double beds have an orthopedic frame (and relative recommended size for the mattress) measuring cms 160x195. As smaller formats we have french style double beds with a width of 140 cms and king size single beds with a width of 120 cms. As larger double beds we have german style double beds (or queen-size), with orthopedic frame 180 cms wide, and king-size beds (or american style), reaching 2 meters in width. For several collections taller people may require a bed with longer orthopedic frame, with tailor-made longer spars, with a length for mattresses up to cms 210.

Finally a special mention for canopy beds, round beds and sommier bes. A canopy bed is always interpreted as a traditional or possibly ethnic bed, wooden or made of wrought iron. A bed with a canopy is not suitable to smaller rooms but can certainly offer a unique atmosphere of recollection and intimacy. In the case of lack of space we recommend a good mosquito net hanging from the ceiling to surround the entire bed: for a small price you will create an intimate bedroom with a vaguely colonial taste. A round bed has its own unique charme...first of all it undeniably stirs transgressive thoughts, romantic or romantic-transgressive at the same time. We must also point out that the round bed is especially comfortable during sleep and rest, thanks to its shape, and in some cases it really does improve the usability of the bedroom. A last note, finally, on the so-called sommier. These beds, without footboard and headboard, are finished on 4 sides. The sommier bed is often used in contract supplies for hotels or motels and it's often combined with panelling and boiseries.

After this long introduction on beds let's talk briefly about bedroom sets, whose main elements are bedside tables (or nightstands) , armoires (or dressers), and side benches. There are modular bedroom sets with overlapping elements, others instead with bedside tables (often suspended) integrated in the bed itself (perhaps with a sliding panels headboard).
