  • Classic small bedroom

    In a small bedroom, there is not a lot of space for furniture, so a statement bed is important to define the style of the room. Here, a cast-iron frame creates a traditional look, and it looks striking against the pale walls. A chest is ideal for storing clothes and providing seating at the same time, making good use of the limited space.
