The Bottom-of-Bed Perch
A little secret I like to include when designing a master bedroom is to place something great at the end of the bed. Whether it be a sofette, chaise, ottoman, or bench, it can add the perfect touch to a room.
There are several reasons for this – the first is the aesthetic graduation of heights as your eye slowly moves from a lower piece to the higher headboard – it keeps the room balanced.
When folding top blankets and duvets back it gives them a perfect landing spot.
I also love the more practical reasons for this bottom of bed perch. It makes a great place to lounge while reading a book, watching TV, or having a midmorning snack, just add a small table and ottoman for a little vignette. One of my favorite suggestions, especially to those who have children or grandchildren is to use a sofette, at the end of the bed, which can double as a sleeping area when they are not feeling well.
