8 Striking Black Bedroom Furniture Looks We Can't Wait to Re-Create

Updated 11/10/17

Though we've been known to experiment with bright hues and dabble in pretty pastels, there's nothing that stands the test of time and style quite like black bedroom furniture. Not only does it go with everything, but it also introduces a touch of grounded sophistication. That being said, the moody hue tends to be intimidating when it comes to the bedroom, where warmth and comfort are key factors in creating a sanctuary that promotes sweet dreams.

The good news is that you can go a variety of directions, and it's not all that complicated once you start brainstorming. So to enjoy the perks that this color offers—like investing in pieces you'll keep even as your style evolves or your home changes—we rounded up eight gorgeous displays of black bedroom furniture to take notes from. Whether you want to punctuate a bright and colorful environment with striking, bold black pieces or you want to stick to a strictly dark palette, these gorgeous interiors will show you how to decorate a posh yet livable space.

For a Hint of Modernism

The pale lime walls and the minty green curtains bring a sense of contemporary cheer to the room by making the dramatic high ceilings and the Victorian architecture a bit more approachable. They also indicate a sense of fun and good humor, complementing the relaxed, California coastal vibe of the bedding and bedside table. The finishing touch? A clean-lined, elegant black floor lamp to anchor the whole space.

A Touch of Seriousness

Don't get us wrong, warm and sweet vibes are two great qualities to emulate when designing a place to sleep soundly, but it feels complete and more balanced when there's an element of seriousness to ground the room. Though subtle, this bedroom proves our point with the traditional black bedside tables. A little goes a long way.

For Something Striking

The icy blue tones and the black metal accents gain warmth from the rich, soft textures layered throughout the room. The plush carpet and the cozy cream sofa make this bedroom just cozy enough while also being completely grown-up with striking wall art and crisp white linens.

For Balance

The earth tones and textures in this space open up a strong connection with the outdoors (that gorgeous, sprawling window doesn't hurt either). To round out the space with a sophisticated touch, opt for black furniture that still features light wood grains and organic shapes. This way, it won't wash out the strong sense of place and tribute to nature.

Cool Meets Cozy

Decorating Ideas

We love how all the black pieces in this room bring an element of sheer and austere cool. It's not offputting in the slightest though because everything else in the room is so welcoming and cuddle-friendly.

Softly Regal

Black Décor
Liljencrantz Design

There's just something distinctly regal about this bedroom. The smokey velvet pieces are formal yet liveable, and the décor elements all serve a functional purpose.

An Unexpected Pair

Interior Color Scheme
Disc Interiors

Who knew something as soft and cheerful as blush pink would pair so nicely with black? It creates the perfect balance of traditional elements. The key to pulling off this look is sticking to black accent pieces rather than large, foreboding, and bulky furniture.

For Intrigue

Black Décor
Anna Leena

You could roll out of this bed, and it would still be graceful and safe, partially thanks to the plush sheepskin rug that would likely catch your fall. It represents true mastery of the effortless, undone look, as the slouchy textiles and the minimal walls are peppered with wiry, angular black furniture.
