Glamorous Art Deco Bed

Simon Horn - Valentino (7)

Now I don’t know about you, but I prefer my bedroom to be a minimal, zen-like space with very little going on. My clothes are hidden behind a false wall that doubles up as a wardrobe, the walls and floors are white and there are a couple of simple, monochrome prints on the wall. The bed is a very simple (cheap) thing that came from Ikea about ten years ago for about £150 and really deserves to be replaced.

Then I saw this. If you stick to the principle of keeping everything else in the room to a minimum then you can really afford (perhaps not quite literally in this case) to go mad with one central piece of furniture which should be the focal point.

This Valentino bed by Simon Horn is an extraordinary amount of money (£6,700 for a super king) but oh just look at it. I’m not usually a fan of mirrored furniture as it can often look cheap but perhaps that’s because it often is, and when you see something like this you can understand the difference. This is made from panels of antique glass with a wooden frame that has been painted to resemble rusted metal.

I would feel so glamorous sleeping in this and, if you kept it for a lifetime (which is surely the premise behind the price) then I guess it would work out over time. The range includes a bedside cabinet for just under £2,000 and a four drawer chest for around £3,000 and if it’s any consolation, I wouldn’t buy the whole range. I think you should just have the bed. On its own with barely anything else in the room at all.

    Oh my goodness – on first look I didn’t realise it was mirrored. Amazing but it would definitely need a minimal room, wouldn’t look quite the same with all my clutter reflected back in it!

    ps it reminds me of the wallpaper by Piet Hein Eek so given the price tag is uber high…..maybe clad your £150 old ikea one in that !

      ooh sneaky! I had exactly the same reaction to this bed. I thought that’s not me at all and closed the email and then I went back to it again and started thinking….

    this bed is a funny one:
    initially i thought ‘god no’…. but then i looked again and started warming to it and now I think….hmm maybe.

    The bed is amazing; the bed and tables together = overkill.

    • Kate Watson-Smyth 9th July 2015 at 9:30 am

      That’s what I think but I do really fancy that bed!
