Italian bedrooms are some of the most exquisite in the world. They use a wide range of high quality materials and designs that appeal to everyone. Bedroom sets have a unique character of form and quality construction.

They engineered modern Italian bedroom furniture as high-end and trendsetting. Modern bedroom furniture collections offer a custom look and a range of innovative shapes and premium textures. 

Italian artisans take pride in achieving international standards of comfort and design. In the 16th century, they carved platform beds with extra storage from scratch. Italian beds of today offer no less in workmanship and modern design. Here are some top ideas for bringing modern Italian style to your bedroom.

Platform Beds

The simple look of the modern platform bed has made them a popular choice in the contemporary bedroom. A box spring is no longer needed most times with the high-tech design of a single mattress system. Added layers of coils, foams and natural fillings provide the proper support to achieve the perfect blend of comfort and longevity.

They have redesigned the headboard to bring the low proportion of the bed base into a balanced position. Wide and low-profile headboards are taking center stage for a modern contemporary background. Also referred to as air-wide beds, the extra width accommodates side night tables. Some night stands are conveniently built-in to the frame and are of the same design and color. 

Floating Italian Beds

There is nothing more relaxing than the feel of floating in the air. A floating design frame fitted with positioned supports can add a special feature to your platform bed by drifting in midair. The illusion looks magnificent with the aid of carefully placed LED track lighting. 

Lighting behind the headboard is another modern trend that uses upward illumination to highlight the sleeping area. Subtle and safe, the ambient glow reflects a soothing mood. 

Italian Leather Beds

Leather upholstery on bed frames and headboards is still a thing in luxurious Italian decors. Leather is a timeless and respected material that can highlight your bedroom with European dignity. Interior designers are playing with different colors and unusual types of leather to keep them looking exciting and popular.

For example, a crocodile-patterned cream leather high headboard on a queen bed mixes Italian style with transitional decors of contemporary, modern, and luxury. Surrounded by white gloss and a large silver framed mirror, you will feel like a queen in your sophisticated leather bed.

Canopy Beds

Canopy beds are among the oldest and most remarkable in Italian design. These classy beds never go out of style, making modern Italian styles of metal or wood. Also referred to as a poster bed, the history is rich in this contemporary look with a century flair. Straight lines with no covering are today’s look for canopy beds. However, they get covered with upholstery or sheers because of their versatility. This is an easy way to have a transitional option in your decor.

Wood Italian Bedroom Set

Solid oak and walnut are high-quality materials that you will find in Italian contemporary furniture. From a queen size bed and wooden frame to a matching chest of drawers, layers of UV high gloss lacquer add an elegant touch to a modern bedroom set in a New York penthouse.

Matching nightstands and large dressers of the same quality woodwork well when you have plenty of room to work with. There is nothing that wood cannot match when Italian designers are behind creativity.

Different sizes of bedrooms may limit the availability of massive dressers with large drawers. However, their ability to fit each room proportionately with a single dresser or smaller bedside tables will never compromise the modern look. 

Graphite Designer Beds

The Alf Group is a leading company that takes the innovation of a 3-piece bedroom set beyond its borders. No natural material can escape the creativity of this company as it strives to add timeless beauty to your master suite.

Graphite with high gloss polyester lacquer and a matte finish will outline a queen-size bed and double dresser in glory. Look at the variety of finishes to determine whether you want a toned-down contemporary look or a modern glossy feel for your bedroom.

Marble Inspired Bedroom Collection

The Camel Group is another prestigious Italian company that can cover a bedroom space with gorgeous materials and design. Nothing spells luxury like Carrara marble in a stunning geometric shape. Used with straight panels and in a neutral hue, a guest room of youthful vibes is the result. Inspirations with marble require custom ordering assigned to an Italian designer because of the complexity of the stone.

Glass, chrome, and mirrors against marble and a thin layer of solid wood create a contemporary appeal. Added LED light strips along the geometric lines will require a minimal design for the rest of the room. A queen-size bedspread and a few decorative pillows will deliver the highest quality of Italian beauty to contemporary beds. 

Curved and Padded Headboards

A padded headboard of tufted velvet or soft upholstery makes for a modern sexy European-style bedroom set. Selecting a light color palette of natural tones will help exaggerate your king bed’s set features. Depending on the size of your padded headboard, some lined the back wall with a decorative pattern. Others may opt for natural wood that offsets the soft, appealing fabric.

Curved sides of a special order upholstered headboard show a modern romantic presence in your home decor. Straight lines of the fabric against a backboard of beautiful high gloss wood grain lacquer will lean more towards contemporary and minimal style. 

Bedroom Storage Options

Bed storage options are available for king-size beds with slim-lined drawers beneath or open space under double beds with adjustable metal feet. Tall dressers and modern bedroom chests can also hold tons of items.

Be careful in selecting dressers of heights that can clash with low-lying platform beds. Instead, chose low and wide dressers with a straight line of framed pictures for balance. 

Lighting and Accessories

A minimal approach is more appealing to a modern Italian bedroom with few decorative items. A low-hanging linear chandelier with Murano crystal log glass will intensely gracefully fit any contemporary Italian bedroom scene. One or two ceramic pieces will not take away from their beauty.

You can keep the ceiling fixture plain and highlight a sitting area or side of the bed with a freestanding directional light for reading. A single tabletop sculpture or clear glass bowl will keep a minimalist structure.
