We’ve picked out our top 10 bedroom furniture ideas this winter.

1. Luxurious Materials

There’s a definite trend this season towards using luxurious materials for throws, rugs and cushions; soft textures are ever popular as temperatures drop. This trend has now transferred to furniture with faux fur chairs, futons and settees. (http://www.popsugar.com/home/Would-You-Rock-Fur-Chair-Were-Fake-Fur-2397951

2. Scandinavian Storage Solutions

The Scandinavian look is incredibly popular at the moment, notably for its emphasis on de-cluttering and minimalism. That means storage is key. Our range of Scandinavian-inspired freestanding furniture such as thus chest of drawers below is perfect for completing the look.

3. Countryside Inspired

What could be more a more natural material to have in your home than ‘real’ wood? Raw materials add texture and variety to any room giving points for the eye to rest on. As you can see below, these wooden sliding doors add visual depth and warmth to the room, perfect for the winter season.

4. Folk Detailing 

With the night’s drawing in, folk-inspired décor is perfect for off-setting this with funky, bright detailing. Add a cheerful element to your home with appealing patterns on your chairs and cushions.(http://www.houseandgarden.co.uk/interiors/living-room/folk)

10. Handmade

If these trends aren’t quite to your taste, maybe consider painting and designing your own bedroom furniture.

You can purchase chalk paints from most boutique interior decorating stores, and larger chains. (https://www.anniesloan.com/inspiration)
