It could seem royal, but you don’t have to be Marie Antoinette to appreciate the tasteful lines of a gorgeous French bed. When it’s the master bedroom, kid’s room or even the office or conservatory, there is a great French bed for every room in the home. Plus, while French furniture is frequently thought of as formal, it’s simple to transition the look to suit any taste. With all these variations to choose from, there is a way for every member of the family to catch some Zs in fashion.
A set of French twin beds is quite versatile. Twin beds make a precious, lively kid’s room but can also transition easily into a classy, elegant guest room. A different set of linens for each season in varying pale and daring shades can change the look of the room immediately. It is such a fun change for a youngster, and, in regards to guests, everything might be better than picking a linen you know would attract a friend?
A set of French twin beds can be so soft at a space. They aren’t overpowering like a large, upholstered bed could be, and there’s still space for art within the headboard. In a shared kid’s room, being able to hang something distinguishing that represents the personality of each child is a way to provide each sibling an opportunity to make her own room.

In a room which is not perfectly symmetrical or that’s one window where the bed must be, it can be complicated to use twin beds with no looking a little off. A crown similar to this is ideal for a girly girl and gives the look of symmetry even if it’s not there. The sheers can easily be eliminated to transition the look into one which is more grownup.

While this shabby chic neutral is a lovely choice for a French bed, one of the absolute best things about a good wood head and footboard is it’s simple to change the colour. A subtle French grey, a daring hot pink or perhaps stripping it back to its first wood could give a bed like this a completely different personality.

The classic symbol of opulence and high culture in 16th century France, while not exactly a bed, the chaise is a timeless bit of furniture that is lounging. Though beautiful in any room, an office is the ideal area for a chaise. In between working, working and working, sometimes a person wants a moment just to think!
In ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, chaise lounges were created particularly for eating. While it would appear strange to use them for that purpose these days, one of my favourite places for a chaise is a sunroom or conservatory, a space which can be used for resting, reading or, of course, eating.

When discussing French beds, you can not forget about the daybed. One with cane sides such as this is fantastic for a spot like a hallway and looks beautiful without disturbing the visual line. An office area which also needs to function as a guest room is also ideal location for a daybedl. It can be a sofa by day and a bed by night!
The tailored look of a French headboard is so timeless. Placing a seat at the end helps distribute the burden, but you don’t walk in the room and believe”bed” Plus, in a guest or guest space, it’s nice to have a place to place things. In certain situations a little, short settee in the end of a large king bed works well too. The proportions have to be just right however, when done properly, it’s remarkable!
