Valheim: the best furniture for comfort

The world of Valheim is a cold, dark, and unforgiving place, suitable for crashed survivors and fallen soldiers. But even the most brutal Vikings need a place to drown their sorrows in a few mugs of mead and take a nap in front of the fire like a big bearded cat.

Presentation of the comfort note. Your environment determines the amount of a well-rested bonus you get each time you nap. The max possible comfort in Valheim is currently set at 17, and here is the furniture that will get you there.

Updated January 17, 2022 by Ryan Bamsey: As Valheim receives updates and content drops, the game will receive more and more furniture that you can craft and place in your base. We’ve gone through this list to make sure it’s up to date and added some of the new comfort options.

11 The Dragon’s Bed: Sleep Like a True Viking

Of course, only a Dragon Bed is suitable for a Viking warrior. Even though the pillows seem to softly whisper the tune of “Fus Ro Dah” into your ears as you try to fall asleep, the Dragon bed offers a +2 comfort rating compared to the +1 of a normal bed.

To build a dragon bed, you need a hammer, a workbench and the necessary materials. There are a few. 40 precious woods, 7 deer skins, 4 wolf skins, 10 feathers and 15 iron nails. It looks comfortable.


ten The hanging brazier: elegant and practical

Scandinavians are world famous for their interior design, and this Norse Viking must-have Fengshui provides light, comfort and dries even the wettest viking boots. The hanging brazier can be placed on the ceiling. It’s not the most impressive build in Valheim, especially compared to a player’s Eiffel Tower, but a humble brazier gets the job done.

To build one, you need a hammer, a forge, and some materials. 5 Bronze, 2 Charcoal and 1 Chain. Throw coal into the brazier and set it on fire. The smoke will begin to billow (don’t breathe it in) and the brazier will function effectively as a campfire, quickly eliminating the cold, damp effect. It also offers +1 comfort.

9 Deer rug, wolf rug and lox rug

These rugs are made from the hide of their respective animals with a hammer (the Vikings apparently use a hammer for everything) and a workbench. They offer a comfort rating of +1 comfort and can stack with each other.

This means you can have a Deer rug, a Wolf rug, and a Lox rug in the same house and get the benefits of all three rugs. Not all furniture types stack their comfort bonuses, so it’s really useful if you’re trying to hit that 17 maximum comfort. You will need an assortment of bows and spears to take down all of these creatures.

8 Table: For meads, meads and more meads

The humble table, an essential part of any Viking room. Marked with ax marks and stained with delicious frost-resistant mead, the table gives your Viking home +1 comfort.

You only need one table to get the comfort bonus, but you can put a few next to each other if you go for a more Viking aesthetic. To craft a table, all you need is a hammer, a workbench, and 6 precious woods.

If you want something fancier, however, round tables and long heavy tables will provide +2 comfort and require fine wool, tar, and iron nails.

Valheim Base Wood

What’s a table without a place to sit? Originally, benches and stools actually reduced comfort by -1, although this has now been fixed. You can insert as many benches and stools as you want without compromising your comfort level.

That being said, the chairs are the most comfortable with a +2 comfort rating. You only need one to get all the benefits, but you can place as many as you want.

6 The Raven’s Throne: A Throne After Odin’s Heart

While Raven’s Throne sounds like a Finnish heavy metal band, it’s actually one of the most comfortable pieces of furniture in Valheim. The throne offers a comfort rating of +3.

Crafted with a hammer, workbench, and some materials (20 fine wood and 10 iron nails), it’s also one of the most expensive pieces of furniture you can craft. Well worth it, it’s the perfect addition to any valiant Viking room.

Alternatively, the Stone Throne (made with 20 stone, two deer pelts, and two wolf pelts instead) will also provide a +3 bonus to comfort and might be a better match, depending on your tastes.

5 The Hearth: Gather It’s Time to Learn More About the Creepy Crow Man

Valheim Campfire Base

The fire pit is the next campfire upgrade. It provides heat, light and more space for cooking stations above the flames. You can’t just put the fireplace on hardwood (that’s a crazy idea, and the game won’t let you do that anyway) and it has to be placed on a stone floor or on the ground.

Outside, the Hearth provides a +1 bonus to comfort, but inside shelter, it provides +2. Campfires and fire pits don’t stack on top of each other for coziness, so go for the fire pit if you can. The fireplace produces smoke, so you might need a chimney.

4 Decorate your walls with banners

There are banners of all colors available in Valheim: white and red, blue, red, green and black. Different banners require different materials, like the white and red banner which requires 4 raspberries. This means that your character crushes raspberries and spreads them on a piece of cloth. You don’t even want to know the process behind the green banner. Pleasant.

Banners don’t stack for comfort rating, so you only need one of any type. Any banner will provide a +1 comfort rating. That doesn’t mean you have to be stingy with banners. Put them everywhere. Banners for everyone.

3 Maypole: rare to find

Maypole? What is Valhalla? You may never have come across this rare piece of furniture, as it only appears in the middle of abandoned villages in the meadows. It cannot be crafted in the current version of the game, although there is a crafting recipe in debug mode.

Building a base next to a Maypole is a good idea. This actually increases the available comfort rating by +1, up to 18. You can’t run over the Maypole to get it home, so don’t bother. All you get is a handful of dandelions, although this flower isn’t completely useless.

2 The hot tub: relax in style

Valheim Spa

This late-game piece of furniture requires a whopping 20 wood, six tar, 10 iron, and eight stone – and it’s well worth it. As long as it’s placed within range, it’ll give you a nice +2 comfort rating and make your house look a bit fancier to boot.

It’s a little fancy and a little tricky to plan a base, but if you can manage to fit a hot tub into your future floor plans, it’s worth it. Adding those extra minutes to your rest bonus is a huge boon when you go on late-game exploration expeditions.

1 Christmas tree: technically not even in the game

Well, it’s in the game, but only if you cheat. The Christmas tree was an item released in a very, very old version of Valheim and is currently not available in the regular version of the game. Unless you open the debug menu, that is. to say.

The Christmas tree also provides +1 comfort and also increases your overall comfort rating by +1, which means that if you build a perfect base next to a mast with a Christmas tree inside, you can have a maximum comfort index of 19.
