Gothic bedroom furniture is available online from retailers, according to The Find, whose products range from iron bedsteads to carved headboards from retailers as diverse as Amazon and Armani. According to DigsDigs, Gothic design is traditionally black and white, somber in tone, with touches of vampire-themed accessories such as stripes and crosses. Artificial bouquets of dark flowers and a carved headboard on the bed help set the mood.
According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Gothic Revival furniture was preferred for libraries regardless of the exterior style of the home. Its high-backed, formal chairs might also be found in the dining room. Today's Gothic, says Interior Holic, is gloomy and dramatic, reflecting the current taste for vampires and goth. A typical Gothic bedroom has dark painted or papered walls, a bed with a massive carved wood or high iron frame, splotches of white fabric, dim lighting or candles. Traditionally, Gothic style was an offshoot of Victorian decor, and incorporated high arches, grand spaces and peaks, reminiscent of a castle or ancient manor. While Gothic might seem to appeal to a punk-style teenager, it is meant to be sparse and aesthetic in appearance. Dark walls are the foundation, but modern Gothic furniture is eclectic and comes in many forms.
