Modern Bedroom Furniture: The Aesthetics of Philosophy

Modern Bedroom Furniture: The Aesthetics of Philosophy

The term “modern bedroom” does not refer to the physical “age” of the room itself. Rather, a “modern bedroom” is one decorated in a manner that parallels modern design values. Generally, this means that for your furnishings to be considered modern bedroom furniture, they have to be indicative of a characteristically modern minimalist aesthetic. To put it simply: For a modern bedroom, less is more. To achieve a truly modern look, you will first need to de-clutter your bedroom.

Get rid of all those unnecessary trinkets and furnishings that take up space in your room. Your goal is to have a room that is very organized, and delineated by simple straight lines. To that end, you will also want to lose any round, flowery, ornate antique furniture in exchange for some sleek, streamlined, and stylish modern bedroom furniture.

Many modern bedrooms tend to go with a high contrast color scheme. This often manifests itself in lightly colored (but often monotone) walls and dark wood or black furniture. Sleek black platform beds with pure white sheets, for example, are visually stunning and dramatic. But just because these furnishings are subtly designed does not mean that their presence is subtle. In fact, modern bedroom furniture is often placed very prominently in a modern bedroom to give the décor some extra pop.

Accessories like pillows and lamps should complement your platform beds and other furnishings, but they shouldn’t overwhelm the room. Remember, for a modern bedroom, simple is better. Perhaps embellish your contemporary bed with a single red throw pillow, or put a sleek silver lamp on your nightstand. With a little creativity and a less-is-more mentality, you will be well on your way to having a sophisticated and elegant modern bedroom. For more information go here.

    does the author of this article even had the vaguest idea of what they meant by “aesthetics of philosphy”?

    I didn’t think so. Stop using big words to make yourself seem more intelligent. Its doesn’t work.

    YY, Don’t be mean. You are not the best writer either. First the author does have the title right because this is he/she’s philosophy (which you spelled wrong)of aesthetics. Also the author of this piece uses proper grammar unlike you.

    “Stop using big words to make yourself seem more intelligent. Its doesn’t work.”

    It’s should not even be there. Even if it was suppose to be there you did not put in the apostrophe. Don’t get me wrong I’m not the best either but do not be mean to people to make yourself feel better.

    LOL, because being mean to people to make yourself feel better, well, as you would say. “Its doesn’t work.”
