Are upholstered beds driving youth bedroom sales?

The Lindsey upholstered bed by Bernhardt Interiors features mini nailhead trim on the headboard and has a fully upholstered footboard and siderails.

In the Aug. 29 edition of Furniture/Today, I have a special report coming out about upholstered beds, which are probably among the bestselling beds in the marketplace. This has a lot to do with their styling and the fashion forward nature of fabrics on these beds.Industry participation in this story was strong, ranging from style leaders such as Lexington and Bernhardt, Bassett and Kincaid, to more price driven (yet still stylish) offerings by companies such as Homelegance, Somerton and Fashion Bed Group to name a few.

But upholstered beds are not only geared towards master bedrooms. They also can be suitable for second bedrooms and even youth bedrooms. In fact the lines of many youth resources are offering upholstered beds for both girls and boys rooms.

As you may have guessed, this is the subject of my next youth bedroom report coming out in the Sept. 12 edition of Furniture/Today. As a youth resource, are you seeing any success with upholstered beds?
