Italian bedroom sets are attractive pieces that work well with nearly any type of decor. They come in a variety of materials, and some of the more common are wood, marble, and Formica®. Traditional sets may contain very large pieces that have rounded tops and elaborate designs such as ribbons or scrolls. More modern bedroom furniture is smaller and sleeker, so the pieces have flat or square bottoms and, sides, along with tops that are slightly curved.
Many different materials can be used to build Italian bedroom sets, including wood, Formica®, and marble. They may also be made from laminated wood or a combination of wood and Formica®. Many different types of wood may be used, but mahogany and walnut are the two most popular. Formica and marble pieces are normally solid white, cream, or black in color, while wooden pieces may be either light or dark brown.
Classic Italian bedroom furniture may have elaborate curves on the headboard, footboard, and dressers. These pieces might be very rounded on top and may contain scrollwork or other designs. Some sets contain a nightstand or wardrobe; these pieces are typically flat on top but slightly rounded in the front. Many times, frosted glass panels may be inserted into the front of a wardrobe or headboard; the dresser may contain a mirror made of frosted glass as well.
More modern Italian bedroom sets may be sleeker in design than traditional pieces are. This bedroom decor may include a nightstand and dresser that is straight on the sides, but slightly round in front. Bedroom design such as this may include furniture that is only slightly curved on top rather than extremely round. The exception to this is the headboard, which may still be very round. Contemporary bedroom furniture may or may not include a footboard, but if there is one, this piece is normally straight on all sides rather than rounded.
Italian bedroom sets come in a variety of price ranges, so there are sets to fit every budget. As a rule, bedroom furniture with elaborate designs is normally more expensive than contemporary pieces are. Antique bedroom decor range from moderately priced pieces to expensive ones and is normally based on the age of the furniture, type of design, and material used in making it. This furniture is normally well constructed and works well with many different types of bedroom design, so it is a good investment whether purchased new or used.
