Your bedroom should be a place where you can relax and unwind. You want to incorporate cool colors that have a calming energy, and you want your furniture to be simple, clean, and functional while still maintaining your personal home style. Luckily, modern furniture is the perfect cross between functional, clean and unique. Below you can find some of our recommended pieces for your modern bedroom, but there’s plenty of more options available in our store!
Whenever you have company over, we all know the first room to collect all the miscellaneous objects from the rest of the house is the bedroom, but that doesn’t necessarily make for a calming space. In order to feel comfortable and cozy in your bedroom, everything needs to have a home and that happens by making sure you have the right storage in place. Here are our best modern home decor pieces to help you make the most of the space you have.

Everyone has comfortable clothes to lounge around in, but more often than not they end up littered on your bed after you change in the morning or get thrown on the dreaded clothes chair. Instead of letting your comfy clothes slowly take over your room, hang up this minimalistic coat rack from ZOOI and use it to hang up your favorite robe or sweatshirt that you plan on changing back into as soon as you get home.
- For Blankets and Pillows: K'WILLEM IN HUIS LARGE METAL VASE

Now, when you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, you won’t be walking through a landmine of pillows!
Beyond the Bed
Many people have a bedroom that is simply a bed, a dresser, and nothing else. Although minimalistic, it doesn’t have the warmth and coziness needed to make it a truly relaxing room. By adding just a few functional pieces of modern furniture, you can make your bedroom a place you want to spend time, rather than a place you just want to sleep. Here are some of our favorite modern furniture pieces for the bedroom.
