Romantic and ornate are two interior design trends that have made their way into bedroom furniture design. The Italian Renaissance of the1400s was the beginning of furniture history as we know it. They influenced many of the furniture characteristics we see today in both traditional and contemporary furniture designs.
Out of the Renaissance came a joyous side to design in its ornate carvings know as baroque. The combination of the classic Grecian style mixed with lavish baroque styling gives us what we know today as the Italian Renaissance furniture style.
The bedroom pictured here is reminiscent of the Renaissance style, with its upholstered and ornately carved Pecan wood bed paired with a sofa table carved with decorative motifs and set with two tall candelabras and architectural sconces below.
The room’s decorative faux wall treatment mimics masonry cornices above the windows and crumbling plaster with block showing through. The room is brought together by a hand-knotted wool area rug with floral motif looking patinaed with years of loving use. The room boasts the romance and ornate flair of fine Italian design,
A visit to Hickory Furniture Mart, with our many bedroom furniture stores, will give you the best idea of what is available in period reproduction furniture such as in the Italian Renaissance bedroom above.
