Mid Century Bedroom Furniture


Midcentury design is well suited for bedrooms. This classic retro style combines the cozy familiarity of yesteryear with contemporary aesthetic. west elm offers an array of midcentury bedroom furniture to help you create a retreat for sleep, slumber, working, relaxing or regaling. Whatever your bedroom needs, you’ll find the perfect pieces to pull off the look you want.


The bed is always the focal point in a bedroom. Make it a showstopper by selecting a midcentury design that is stunning in its simplicity, yet sophisticated in design. If you lean on the minimalist side of midcentury modern, consider a platform bed made of FSC-certified wood, with a streamlined headboard and tapered legs. Perhaps you prefer more texture and drama in your bedroom. If so, try an upholstered headboard in a linen weave or button-tufted. Dress your bed in layers of comfy bedding. Choose from solid colors or prints and patterns reminiscent of designs popular in the 50s and 60s.


Flank the bed with nightstands that supply form and function needed in our seamless transitions between play, work and relaxation. Nightstands are available in metal or Danish-inspired wood designs. Choose from small bedside tables to larger nightstands with drawers and shelves. No need to pick identical nightstands. Instead, consider mixing and matching to add interest to your space. Try using an end table with metal details to complement a floor lamp on one side and a storage-friendly industrial styled nightstand on the other. The same concept applies to choosing dressers and wardrobes. It’s ok to mix and match finishes. Most woods go well together. Just keep in mind the type of mood you seek. If serenity is the goal, try monochromatic and harmonious designs, finishes and color schemes. If you want more energy or drama, play with a variety of textures, colors and accessories.


Create a sitting area or reading nook with a cozy chair and side table. Depending on the size of your bedroom, a sitting area could include a single chair and slender pedestal or a love seat accompanied by two wing chairs and a cocktail table. Even a tiny bedroom has space for a sitting area. Reclaim a corner with an armless dining chair or place a bench at the foot of the bed for those times you’re awake yet still in retreat. Use midcentury modern lighting to complete your space. Add color with ceramic-base table lamps. An overarching floor lamp is a quintessential accessory in midcentury design. Reinforce your retro chic retreat with midcentury wall art.
