The wrought iron bed is one of design’s classics that fits in perfectly with any style of furniture, from the most traditional to the most modern. Its solid and resistant structure makes it the ideal piece of furniture for those looking for a durable, high-quality design object.

With its timeless beauty and expressive charm, the wrought-iron bed gives the bedroom a light and open feeling of space thanks to its aerial structure. Its workmanship, born of a formal search for clean, harmonious lines, requires the skilful hands of master craftsmen, elevates the style of the room and guarantees greater durability than wood or fabric models. Where, then, to start when making this furniture choice?

Wrought iron bed: what’s your style choice?

When furnishing your home with a wrought iron bed, it is important to consider the style you want to create in the room. This material adapts to many variations of furniture, from shabby to romantic, from minimalist to classic or modern styles.

If the aim is to recreate a room with a Provencal flavour, Glicine proves to be the ideal solution.

The hand-patinated lacquered iron bed by Bontempi gives the room a cosy and romantic atmosphere. Made in the colours of rose gold, Glicine stands out for its masterful ironwork, which gives life to floral motifs and curved, sinuous structural lines. To make the bedroom decor harmonious and accentuate Glicine’s bucolic style, it is enough to combine soft, ornate fabrics such as lace or silk, furniture with soft curves, pastel-coloured carpets and lamps with floral patterns.

Those who prefer the minimalist style can use the wrought iron bed to add a touch of originality to the room. In this case, the ideal is to go for a simple, linear structure with a dark, matt finish. Like Eolo, the lacquered or hand-patinated iron bed created by designer Giuseppe Casarosa and featured in the Bontempi 2023 collection. The structure is characterised by the special heat-treated oak workmanship and the original geometric shape of the bed headboard, which makes it comfortable for the back. The final touch to make the room ambience minimal and cosy, combine plain fabrics with essential furniture, such as an open bookcase or a cleanly designed bedside table.

The classic style also goes perfectly with the wrought iron bed, especially when combined with retro-style furniture. In this case, the bed frame can be enriched with decorative details or harmonious compositions. Like Ginevra, an elegantly designed bed made of solid ash wood, a robust and durable material. Adding to its comfortable style is the headboard, which is upholstered and covered in faux leather or fabric. Ginevra, part of the Bontempi 2023 collection, is the ideal choice for those with solid wood wardrobes, soft-line chest of drawers, a leather-upholstered armchair or for those who wish to renew the style of their bedroom in this direction.

Finally, for those who prefer the modern style, the wrought iron bed can become the focal point of the room thanks to its understated elegance. In this case, a simple and minimalist structure is recommended, but enriched with original details, such as the addition of a side shelf. For example, the Dylan bed from the Bontempi 2023collection represents the perfect fusion of modern and minimalist design, clean lines and geometric shapes. Here, the frame is metal, the bed upholstery is faux leather, and the headboard is upholstered to ensure greater comfort and support during sleep. To complete the decor, it is advisable to integrate wardrobes with sliding doors, contrasting carpets and innovatively designed wall lamps.

Final recommendations before purchasing a wrought iron bed

Pay attention to size: the wrought iron bed is available in different sizes, from a single bed to a double bed. It is important to choose the right size according to space and comfort requirements.

Carefully select matching fabrics and accessories: cushions and blankets in neutral colours such as beige or creamy white can create a relaxing and cosy atmosphere. For a touch of originality, on the other hand, fabrics with geometric or floral patterns can be used, but it is important to be careful not to overdo it so as not to weigh down the room.

Ensure adequate lighting of the room: you can choose table or wall lamps with fabric lampshades and a design that recalls the style of the wrought iron bed. Choosing the right finish and matching fabrics and accessories with care creates a unique and cosy atmosphere.
