Completing the bed ensemble are matching mahogany nightstands with a single drawer each. Their tapered design keeps the edges feeling soft.

A generous sized dresser provides ample storage. Its dark walnut finish and angular brass pulls offer sophistication.

Finishing off this sleeping oasis is a dark gray velvet bench at the foot. Its plush tufted cushion invites lounging with a good book before bed.

Warm ambient light comes from a floor lamp with a smoked glass shade and a brass finish. Blackout curtains in a soft velvet drape elegantly from a brushed gold rod, allowing total darkness when desired. With its blend of dark wood tones, rich fabrics and moody lighting, this bedroom ensures a restful escape each night. Intimate yet sophisticated, it welcomes relaxation through thoughtful styling and cohesive layering of textures.
