Ideas for Mixing Traditional Furniture with Contemporary Style

Popular traditional furniture is constantly being innovated to fit modern trends. Sleigh beds, which have curved foot and head boards giving it a sleigh-like appearance, have evolved constantly since their introduction as one of the most widely used types of bed. Previously, these large and often elaborate headboards added considerably to the weight of the bed. Now, with contemporary materials combined with tradition ones such as wood, sleigh beds have evolved once more to be contemporary furniture pieces with a number of styles and materials to choose from.

As mentioned, one of the problems with integrating sleigh beds into the modern style is that they are very heavy, while modern furniture strives to be as light-weight and easy to move as possible. Beds built from cherry wood instead of oak are an excellent remedy to this problem, as they are both light-weight and resilient.

Another solution is to the problem of size. Day sleigh beds incorporate the sofa-like size and shape of a day bed with the elegance and style of a sleigh bed. This style is ideal for smaller living spaces as it gives you the comfort and space management that contemporary furniture can provide.

Designing your bedroom, and the rest of your home, can be easily accomplished with modern design. Traditional, heavy, and ornate furniture is now being exchanged with light, manageable, and geometric furniture that can add both practicality and character to any living space. The rewards of having a modern interior extend past the looks to the fact that the materials used are often more durable and easy to maintain.
