From beauty products to customized cars, technological advancements have made matte finishes all the more alluring and viable. Compared to the dramatic effect that high-shine finishes conjure, matte finishes lend furnishings a more relaxed, however, futuristic appeal.
Take this sleek console brought to life by a sensational yellow and periwinkle color combo. In a more traditional color combo it would have come off as standard. And if it were finished with a high-gloss effect, it would come off as overly loud. Instead, thanks to its matte patina, it’ll lend any room a quiet sense of dignity and grace while remaining ultra-cool.
For a similar effect, look for matte finished furnishings that boast unexpected hues and silhouettes, or go for classic styling as when a piece is finished with a matte technique, it will remain forever-cool.

Whatever the case, minimally minded canopy beds are readily available in an endless array of options. And since they usually boast a slim silhouette and elements, they can now fit in almost any room with ease without coming off as overbearing and unnecessary. To make one work in your bedroom, follow suit and source a canopy bed that is quiet and slim to ensure that it won’t take up too much space or ever go out of style.
