Bedroom

Frame Hi Bed

As you get older, do you feel like your taste in furniture becomes more expensive? If so, let’s commiserate together. I’m trying to settle on furnishings for a lake house, and it’s been a continual push and pull between budget constraints and nicer items of quality. Case in point, do I splurge on beds, as they’re the main item in a bedroom, and thus will most likely be there forever? Or do I settle for a pretty good alternative, as I’ll probably be the only one that notices the finer details between the two? Hmm, choices.

Frame Canopy Bed

Huh? This seems like a price too good to be true for a canopy bed. I always thought Room&Board’s Architecture Bed was the best price in the business, but now this Frame Canopy Bed just might take the spot. Canopy beds are excellent for creating a room within a room, which is very suitable for large rooms with high ceilings. Will you get tired of the the brass plated corners after a few weeks years? Maybe, but whenever that happens, there’s more than enough DIY guides on painting brass that will fix that. A quick spray primer on the brass parts and then another contrasting color (dark blue?) would look fantastic.

You know, if you’re looking for something in particular, you can email us and we’ll keep our eyes out for whatever particular thing you’re searching for, right?

Superfront Legs

You might have heard of Superfront, but did you know they have legs that fit Ikea’s mattress bases? And those legs can be shipped to North America? That means you can get a sharp look for a whole lot less than buying a regular bed from a decent retailer. There’s five leg styles to choose from in lots of different colors, so have some fun and play around with what you’d pick for a bedroom upgrade.

Camp Bed

Why are you seeing a camp bed in the dead of winter? Because it’s one heck of deal for one heck of a nice looking camp bed, that’s why. State-of-the-art patented hinges and galvanized spring steel legs combine with a water-resistant, machine washable cover to support up to 350 pounds. For travel, camping, or for your overnight guests, this is a temporary bed that could be left out (maybe?) more permanently as a day bed in a room if you don’t mind a utilitarian look mixed with your everyday furnishings.

Station Queen Bed

Need a new bed? Blu Dot’s Station Bed features a padded upholstered headboard and a durable steel frame. Don’t worry if pink (or gingham) is not your favorite color (or pattern) as there are various options to choose from- four headboard fabrics and two frame colors, to be exact.

Supra Bed

Woven cane usually is an attribute of more traditional furniture, but there’s a few movers and shakers that are mixing things up and applying it to modern designs. This Supra Bed designed by Mermelada Estudio incorporates perforated woven cane into the curved headboard, giving texture and warmth to an architectural oak grid.

Loft Dresser

I know not everyone has $3,400 to spend on a dresser, but this one is from Chadhaus, and, considering their quality craftsmanship (their furniture is handcrafted in Seattle with sustainably-harvested woods), it’s no surprise to see a higher price tag. The clean, classic lines of this storage piece will never go out of style; long after you appreciate the under-mounted mechanical slides and solid wood drawers, you’ll be able to pass it along to the next generation.

Plush Bed

It’s not my job to save you money (or is it?), but if you’re looking for a decently priced (and minimal/modern) bed, you might just want to take a gander at the Plush. You can save a couple of hundred dollars- until June 9- on either the grey or natural color options, leaving you a little extra money to splurge on, say, perhaps some new summer bed linens?

Oak Nordic Bed

Sometimes you might settle for sub-par furniture. That’s acceptable in some cases, but certainly not for a piece of furniture you’re going to sleep on for a third of your lifetime. The Oak Nordic Bed by Ethnicraft is made from sustainably farmed solid oak that is kiln dried to assure stability (think twice about any piece that doesn’t use kiln dried wood) and includes hardwood support slats. There’s also quite a few similarly spare accompanying pieces (Oak Nordic Night Stand ($500), Oak Nordic Chest of Drawers ($2,500), Oak Nordic Dresser 2 Doors ($3,600)) if you need some extra storage.

Stowaway Bed

Under the bed storage is nothing new, nor are drawers built into the bed itself. But chalkboard drawers beneath a platform bed are something a little new as they provide some labeling fun (maybe you’d be more motivated to organize given there’s chalk involved?), and might just be the upgrade you’re looking for if your bedroom is short on storage.

Woodrow Bed

Nice. The slight angles and simple treatment of both head and footboards make this bed a good choice for a modern bedroom- especially if you’re not a fan of upholstered frames. Made from a combination of solid walnut and walnut veneer, with wood slats. Available in four sizes (king, queen, full and twin).

Atwood Bed

Hmm, what do we have here? Reclaimed peroba wood gives a nice rustic modern vibe, but it’s really the built in bench/bookshelf that caught my eye. Dovetail joints and just enough storage space for books gives it extra points over other platforms. Perhaps it’s not the best choice for very small bedrooms (or very small budgets), but it sure would do well when a strong presence is needed.
