The Bed: Classic Reproduction Italian Ornate Bed, Juliette Interiors
This chic, sophisticated and utterly luxurious Italian-made bed wouldn’t look out of place in the finest of European palaces. Immaculately executed by master Italian craftsmen to ensure the utmost in quality and authenticity, this Baroque-inspired piece will make for an impressive centrepiece to build your room around, and will make you feel like royalty every time you wake up in the morning, too.
Featuring painted gilt detailing and a headboard that is padded and elegantly buttoned-upholstered in the highest-quality rich luxury satin, it truly doesn’t get much more sumptuous than this.
Price: £17,850.00 – £21,160.00
The Wardrobe: Luxury Ivory Italian Two-Door Wardrobe, Juliette Interiors
This spacious and ornately-carved wardrobe, featuring a beautiful ivory finish that is hand-painted with bleached gold, makes for a lavish space in which to store your very finest designer attire, and is perfectly in-keeping with the Italian tone set by the focal point – the bed.
Featuring two doors, three draws, a shelf and hanging rail, it’s versatile and roomy enough to store everything from dresses and suits to shoes and underwear.
Price: £17,305.00 – £19,561.00
The Dressing Table: Reproduction Italian Ivory and Gold Rococo Dressing Table
Even the most sophisticated of bedrooms wouldn’t be complete without a luxurious dressing table, and this one comes in an attractive antique white with elaborate, bleached-gold detailing. There is also a free-standing mirror, in a matching finish, to go with it.
The set is beautifully completed with the Designer Italian Chair, which is embroidered in a dainty polka dot fabric and makes for the perfect pairing for this chic and sophisticated set-up.
Price: £1,906.00 – £9,482.00
The Lamp: Luxury Italian Rose Design Table Lamp
When it comes to creating a truly luxurious feel, the devil is in the detail, and everything from the carpet and curtains to your lighting and accessories has the power to make or break the overall effect.
This beautiful table lamp makes for the perfect statement piece to accentuate the Italian theme and will look just perfect sitting atop your nightstand or bedside table. Showcasing outstanding attention to detail and that all-important expert craftsmanship, we love the ash grey version, which features pretty, hand-painted champagne detailing.
The Chair: Classic Italian Designer Armchair
For a truly luxurious feel, you’ll want to create a place where you can sit, in peace and quiet, and read for a while. But no bedroom of this calibre would look quite right with just a window seat, so treat yourself instead to a regal, classic Italian-style chair which is almost worthy of throne status.
This stunning design will make for a striking addition to any setting, and features the same antique white finish and bleached gold detailing of the majority of our other top picks. Upholstered in a sumptuous, textured ivory fabric, it wins full points for opulence all round.
The Mirror: White Louis Reproduction Bedroom Dressing Mirror
The key to creating an all-round luxury feel is by creating space, and a tall mirror can be a great way to create the illusion of extra roominess and make your bedroom feel twice the size that it is.
This romantic piece, made from solid cherry wood and finished in a luxurious white gloss lacquer is just the ticket, and features an impeccably carved and perfectly finished frame, with a base comprising a drawer and small cabriole legs with gold leaf outlines.
