The perfect bench mark

Posted By Rebecca-NY | Jan 07, 2011 | 7 Comments | Category: Decorating

I’m currently shopping for the perfect bench to put at the end of the bed in my clients MBR and as I shop around I’ve noticed some very interesting styles and shapes.  I like the idea of pairing a traditional bench with a more modern bed and vice versa.  Take a look at some of the styles I’ve seen and let me know what you think might be the perfect  bench.

The 6 legged aubusson bench painted in an antique white (this could be great with almost any fabric)

 

The gold circe bench – Two of these could really make a great statement

Martha Stewart Ingrid bench – simple but sweet

 

Slightly more sophisticated with the gold leaf but beautiful nonetheless

If the bed is high enough I like the idea of a settee

Something that has a little detail on the legs

 

Love this antique double x-benchwith silver detailing

 

The Jonathan Adler Bergman bench

I have noticed that with the whole  recession going on, there is one thing that my clients still can’t go without, and that is a fabulous bed!

A great bed can transform a room from drab to fab, and even though your mattress may be the same, you sleep soooooo much better! It’s all psychological, but hey, whatever works!

Here are some of my favorite beds from luxurious, to over-the-top, to downright sexy!  And as you will see, not all beds were made for sleeping ;)

One of my favorites! This bed just looks so comfortable, doesn’t it! I could sleep for DAYS on that bed! What I would give to just sleep at all these days! (The kids like to wake up early!…like 5am early! ugh…they didn’t get that from my side of the family!)
I really love the color scheme in this room too! It’s like a breathe of fresh air (OMG, did I just say that! So corny, but it’s true!)

The King of OVER-THE-TOP himself, Mr. Jonathan Adler! What a freakin’ bed! I want to see a picture of the people that sleep on this thing! So wild! That headboard is gorgeous and I can see it working beautifully in a million different rooms.

I think I would have some pretty cool dreams in this bed! This is a perfect example of a bed “making the room”. It’s all you need really!

This is my personal idea of heaven! I LOVE this bed! I would throw some crazy wallpaper behind it, but other than that it is PERFECT! Graham and Greene make this bed as well as my furniture company, Liv-Chic.

Horchow makes this Baroque beauty and my furniture company also makes the same one!

Ok, I changed my mind , THIS ONE IS MY FAVORITE! Oly Studio has done it again! All hail OLY!  I might never wake up if I fell asleep here!

Total Hollywood Glam! These last two beds remind me of Nicky and Paris Hilton’s homes by Faye Resnick! Can’t you just see those two having a pillow fight in here! (Nicky would kick Paris’ A!)

…And like I said, some beds weren’t made for sleeping!

Goodnight!
