The Trend for Dark Beds and Furniture

Trends come and go, but beds and furniture  can (and when the right, high quality beds and furniture are purchased, they will) last a lifetime.

So, when researching new bedroom furniture, the trick is to consider timeless, and sometimes even iconic designs that consider current styles, yet those that will stand the test of time when it comes to varying trends.

Lately, we have seen a resurgence in the popularity of darker beds and furniture.

Richly saturated, and deeper tones are becoming firm favourites, which we think is driven by a confidence in using colour in the world of interiors.

We’ve seen deep and dark paint colours used in a colour drenching method, whereby a room is completely flooded from top to bottom with the hue and darkly painted ceilings. For those who are looking for a similar aesthetic that is less of a commitment, darker beds and furniture are great options.

Here are our top picks of dark beds and furniture pieces for kids’ rooms that create a statement and pack a punch in the style stakes:


  1. The Bowood Bunk bed In Painswick Blue.

A bold, yet elegant choice, the spindle side and end rails allow lots of extra light through, resulting in a soft yet stunning navy blue bunk bed that is bound to work in any bedroom design.


  1. The Edit bunk bed in Anthracite and Beech

A two-tone bed is a great way of adding depth and character without fully committing to an all over dark colour. Anthracite is a warm, deep Grey tone which pairs beautifully with the warmth of the Beech wood frame.


  1. The Fargo Small Double Bed in Painswick Blue

A super smart, traditional option, Painswick Blue on our Fargo bed is an ideal tone for classically designed bedrooms. The panelled detailing with finials adds texture and depth to the bed, tying it in to cottage style or traditional bedroom aesthetic.


  1. The Fargo High Sleeper with Sofa Bed and Storage Desk

For a statement on a grand level, a high sleeper in deep Blue is the perfect bed to set the scene, especially when it comes to kitting out older children’s rooms. The break in wood and lightness through the ladder means that whilst this is a big bed, the dark blue doesn’t feel too intense as it is broken up with the gaps and a variety of useful furniture underneath.


  1. The Fargo Bedroom Furniture Range
