Bedding has come a long way in a very short space of time. Many consumers found it difficult to personalise their bedrooms in the past but now it is almost expected and so much easier to do than before. Modern bedding is about more than just monochrome designs, though many designs do incorporate black and white for the implied simplicity.
Modern things, ideas or designs resonate with where we find ourselves at present. They do not yearn for the past nor do they look towards the future for inspiration. So bedding has also evolved to the point where it takes current ideas and translates them into something that we can use to decorate our living spaces. This may mean that designers create something around the latest pop culture reference such as Twitter, Facebook or LOLcats.
These ideas can be about the design, fabric innovations, new patterns, or even safety factors in a baby’s room. This can easily update your bedroom’s look and feel. It’s a cost-effective way to create a different feel in such an intimate space.
Modern bedding designs are the easiest to find. This is apparent when one looks at some of the new designs that have features in recent years: it’s become easier to find bedding with bold colours, bold designs, and unorthodox textures. Many designers are also playing around with different textures. Many upscale stores have bedding with ruching, raised surfaces and knots. This makes for an interesting visual and it feels nice to touch as well.
One big feature of modern bedding is that it is uncluttered. There are no unnecessary add-ons in such a bedroom. Pillows, sheets, and throws are at a minimum. This makes it easier to organise, clean and reinvent the room at a later stage and might be in stark contrast to the bedrooms of the early or even later part of the 20th century.
Another feature of modern bedding is that it can be environmentally friendly. This was not often true of earlier decades’ bedding. The user can decide how eco-friendly they want to be and design their dream bedroom around this.
