Crafted in brown cherry and cherry veneer, this Camilla solid wood bedroom furniture in the Millennium collection by Ashley Furniture is well finished to an attractive sheen. The case tops are finished with a pecan veneer which, together with the hardware in an antique bronze shade, offers an elegant and good-looking collection of bedroom furniture. The king bed comprises a sleigh headboard and footboard, and a set of rails, slats and support legs. The headboard is 80 inches wide by 65 inches high by 11 inches deep with the footboard 83 x 36 x 11 inches. The rails are 8.75 inches from the floor. The nightstands are 35H x 31W x 19D inches, with three drawers, the top one of which is felt lined for jewelry. The 55H x 45W x 20D chest has four full-width drawers and two half-width drawers at the top, the latter also being felt lined, and the dresser is the same depth, but 73 inches wide and 38 inches high. The dresser is fitted with eight half-width drawers, and comes with a beautiful mirror framed in the same dark cherry.
Some bed sets have storage drawers in the sides of front of the bed. Consider this option. Ottomans for a chair piece in a bedroom or benches for the foot of the bed can also have storage capabilities apart from aesthetics. There are many different materials used in furniture. This can include wood, plastic, or metal. Consider the design and cost of each material. Also look at the quality and endurance of the materials depending on how it will be used. Decide on the exact pieces needed for a bedroom. Make sure a set has everything needed for a bedroom set, such as a bed frame, side table, dressers, and more. Make sure the size of the bedroom can accommodate all of the pieces in a set. A bedroom should not be crowded with too much furniture. Sets come in different color palettes and designs. Decide what is really desired in a bedroom set in terms of color. Choose colors well so that it will look good in a bedroom. A dark bedroom set will work best in a light bedroom. Light colored sets are great for dark bedrooms, conversely.
The king bed sleigh headboard is at 79.75W x 56H x 8.75 in inches, slightly less than offered with the Camilla. You have the choice of a plain or storage footboard. The latter is dimensioned at 82.75W x 18H x 18D and comes with two drawers, providing the storage space that many find essential. However, there is also ample storage offered by the chest which is 54H x 40W x 18D. The drawer arrangement is the same four bottom and two top as with the Camilla collection, but the edges are beveled giving the whole set a softer look than it would otherwise have. The top two drawers have slightly curved fronts. The dresser is 60W x 42H x 18D with a 42 inch landscape mirror that is plainly framed in black wood. The drawer arrangement is the same eight half-width drawers. The nightstands are 30 x 30 x 18 inches, smaller than those in the above collection. Overall, in fact, the Farnsworth collection is smaller and less substantial than the Camilla range, but where it scores is in the extra pieces.
Broyhill have included a 4-drawer 46 inch media chest for your TV. To many, this is an essential item of bedroom furniture. If you want, there is also a small round pedestal table and chairs so you can either have more furniture in a larger bedroom, or take advantage of the smaller dimension of this collection for a smaller room. These two collections of solid wood bedroom furniture differ in several ways: one is in brown cherry, the other in black; one is in a traditional more ornate style while the other is plain; one offers only the basic pieces while the other offers a TV chest and table and chairs. One provides antique finish metal handles, while other has simply wooden knob pulls. Which should you choose? In fact each of these collections, the Millennium Camilla by Ashley and the Farnsworth by Broyhill, are beautiful collections of solid wood bedroom furniture. Each person will make their choice according to their personal preferences and to their needs. However, one thing is sure: if neither of these attract you, there are plenty more to be found online and in your local furniture outlet showroom.
Beds. Of course, the central piece of the bedroom is, first and foremost, the bed. Choosing the right bed is of prime importance is this is the one piece of furniture that can make one feel comfortable and secure in his own bedroom. The right bed must be sturdy, strong, and reliable. For health purposes, it must support the body the right way - otherwise, you would certainly be uncomfortable and will not sleep well. Choose from several types of hardwood - such as cherry, maple, oak, and walnut - and pick one that is most suited to your taste. This will define how the rest of your bedroom will look like.
Why is cherry hardwood so beautiful? Its wonderful aesthetics lie in its hues. When it is brand new, cherry hardwood gives off a fresh and refreshing feel, allowing the room to look like its actually absorbing more sunlight than it really is. Cherry hardwood would be a great backdrop to clean, plain-colored or lace sheets. With cherry hardwood, less is more and you should aim for subdued elegance mixed with simple and clean lines. The best types of furniture to match cherry hardwood should be those that are sturdy, strong, and emit the same warmth and earthiness as cherry hardwood.
