One’s bedroom is a sacred place. It’s a space to ease into the day, or retreat from an especially hectic one. Designing an oasis like this calls for careful consideration. If you’re after a peaceful, minimalist feel, it’s important to keep visual clutter at bay. With rich materials, deep hues, and delightfully intriguing details, Tom Faulkner offers an array of furniture designs that are as useful as they are beautiful. There’s no need for extraneous decor when beauty is baked into the functional. Read on to see just what we mean and discover our key ingredients to creating a minimalist bedroom of your own.
We invite you to find out, once and for all, how it feels to sleep on a cloud. The exquisite Cloud Bed, custom designed for Savoir, is as beautiful as it is comfortable. Its nebulous headboard pairs with intricate details like “Cloud”-shaped feet and your choice of upholstery to create a symphony of serenity.
The Papillon Bedside Table makes clever use of negative space to create an air of lightness in the room. Its clean, traversing lines evoke a tranquil rhythm, casting mercurial shadows around the piece. It’s a wonderful way to infuse a unique bit of intrigue into a bedroom without overwhelming the eye.
The Ava Table Lamp has a strikingly pared-back look; though, upon closer inspection, one can trace the carefully calibrated geometry that goes into this design. The metal reaches its cinched central axis in a spellbinding twist of material, creating an almost sculptural feel to the piece. With details like this, there’s no need to overload the room with decorative objects or great walls of artworks. It’s all there, built into the practical pieces.
The Albany Console Table is a real favourite thanks to its sleek lines and angular form. With a range of customisations to be made, it’s a piece designed to be truly personal. The Albany offers a fantastic opportunity to show some character through richness of material and colour, without creating a busy visual landscape.
The Lexington Mirror sits at the confluence of form and function. It’s a clean-cut piece with a variety of finishes on offer to suit your space. Its simplicity makes it endlessly versatile, as does the choice of rectangular or round format and the option of custom sizing. It’s everything a mirror should be, and not a drop more.
The Lily Ottoman Coffee Table makes a striking centrepiece in any lounge area. It’s the perfect morning stop-over between bed and the day ahead. With your choice of finish and upholstery, it’s a piece that can be dressed up with vivid colours and complex textures, or muted with more subdued hues to suit your space.
The clean cut-out effect of the Tiffany Dining Chair brings visual sharpness to a space, which is tempered nicely by your preferred upholstery. It’s a simple, elegant design that never gets old – and the perfect dressing table perch.
Mies van der Rohe said it best: “God is in the details”. Finishing touches like the Lily Door Handles bring a hum of handcrafted beauty to a bedroom. Tom’s lily pad-inspired shape delivers a design-forward hit to your everyday routine – and hopefully peppers a bit of joy in the process!
