Antique pieces are always valued in the Italian interior decoration and this does not conflict with the modern designs. With regard to the beds, it is still possible to find antique headboards, generally dating from the 1800s. These pieces are usually made of oak or mahogany, and should be placed in the spacious rooms with high ceilings. It is also possible to find antique copper or iron beds, dating from about the same period.
