A storage chest is an obvious choice for a piece of furniture at the foot of the bad. It can store extra linens or favorite items that don't have another place. It also works as a seat when someone wants to have a conversation without getting into the bed.
A traditional trunk is another option that is a great choice. This is a way to incorporate old-fashioned wooden style into the room's design. And, of course, it's quite a functional storage place at the foot of the bed.
A flat modern bench is another common choice. It's a great place to sit down while you're putting on your socks and shoes in the morning.
A more traditional seating option at the end of the bed would be a bench with a back to it. The back of the bench serves as a foot board for the bed, creating a unique blending of design styles.
A couch or love seat at the foot of the bed is a favorite choice of mine. Curl up here to read, work on a laptop or watch TV. Then get into bed when you're actually ready to go to sleep.
The ottoman is an unusual choice for this space. However, it definitely works. It serves to hold magazines or books, working like a table in an unusual spot on the room. I think it works best in a room like this where everything holds the same color tone.
A flexible modern option is to choose folding nightstands that can easily be taken out and put away. These work great for packing up suitcases or briefcases. I'd love to put these at the foot of the bed in the guest room.
I adore the way that this vintage piece at the end of the bed adds a unique twist to the pretty room. What a great place to show off an antique like this. And of course it's good for holding blankets, too!
This pretty pink bench is perfect at the end of a little girls' bed. It could be a great place for Mom to sit while reading a story aloud. Or it could be a holding spot for teddy bears.
