While this is perhaps the most flattering angle, I do have to say this bed looks incredibly appropriate for a modern-yet-affordable sleeping surface. The frame is made from sustainable solid mango wood and features an open headboard where you can put all manner of bedtime accessories (books, alarm clocks, etc.).

Looks like a nice canopy bed for a bedroom, right? Well, get this, it can also double as an outdoor cabana near the poolside. Not that you would move it back and forth or anything, but it’s nice to know it would stand up to the elements with no problem. And what does PCH stand for? The Pacific Coast Highway in California, of course.
Designed by Bernard Brucha for MASH Studios
Made from plantation grown, grade-A teak and coated with a natural, nontoxic oil finish.
96 L x 74 W x 84 H

Efficient minimalism, indeed. Made entirely of multi-ply bent laminated wood, this bed is just about as structurally sound as you can get with this sort of craftsmanship (while keeping the design aesthetic, of course). The smooth curves do echo Alpine sports, but I’d say it’s more reminiscent of a mid century design classic than ski equipment.
The frame is the first to be built almost entirely of bentwood, giving it both fluidity and strength. The bed was inspired by alpine sports like skiing and toboganning, where strength, lightness and a strong graceful structure are crucial. As in the aesthetic of Alpine sports, the Alpine Series bed embodies efficient minimalism and craftsmanship. It’s one and an eighth inch bentwood structure is engineered to last for generations. –modernica.net

Ah, isn’t this a lovely bed? Isn’t it just spectacular? Every once in a while (if not often) I’ll run across something that I think ‘oh, wow, that’s a great piece, I wonder how much it is?’ and then almost have a heart attack when I see the price. If I ever spend $20,000 on a bed, just shoot me. That being said, if you’ve got the money to spend, and you choose to spend it on this, I will not shoot you, nor will I encourage others to do so. To each their own.
Dramatic and beautiful, this interpretation of the traditional four poster bed is a complete scene-stealer. The balls and frame are made from burnt and waxed ash, finished by hand, with a slatted base in beech wood. It is exclusive to The Conran Shop and can be made in custom sizes.

Something about the sound of ‘clip-on’ when describing this plexiglass headboard seems a little odd, yet there’s no argument that the translucent material would add a modern edge to any bedroom.
This clip-on Headboard (2008) is designed to fit the Min Bed…The translucent plexiglass was specifically chosen to coordinate with any color bed, and maintains the light, unobtrusive character of the Min Bed Collection. The single-piece construction spans the bed’s entire width, extending just slightly beyond each side, and the slightly curved shape of the Min Headboard provides a comfortable backrest for reading or watching TV.

Reclaimed wood and simple styling makes this bed a no-brainer.
Our reclaimed Douglas fir Plank bed adds a contemporary green twist to it’s traditional design and honors the character of the rare first-growth fir used in its construction. Up to a century old, the aged wood-from razed buildings-shows off its rich hue, deep patina, and tight grain. The wood is hand-planed to smooth its surface while preserving the distinctive character of the vintage fir’s imperfections. Our bed’s eco-friendly wax finish highlights the wood’s singular beauty. Includes headboard and bed frame. Assembly required. Made in USA. Allow 5 weeks for delivery.

Geez, I know $1800 for a bed still seems a little steep in price, but considering the price tag used to be $4500, it sounds like a deal.
Most conventional leather bed’s like their sofa counterpart’s suffer from overstyling and excessive padding in order to denote luxury or comfort. Taking a more restrained approach is the Loja Leather Bed (2004), distinctive in its pared-down, sleigh bed form. Skillfully produced in Spain, the bed features light padding over the entire frame to create a soft, cushioned surface that surrounds the user. Large panels of silky, oil-tanned leather the warmest and most supple of cowhide leather’s are used to upholster the frame and are neatly stitched with welted perimeter seams. The headrest features a slight pitch to accommodate comfortable reading or TV viewing.

I was just at Ikea and I actually really liked this piece in person. It has a cover which looks like wool (but is actually a synthetic of some sort).
Removable dry-clean cover.

This innovative bed frame shape allows a quick transition between a single size bed, a full size bed or two beds. (Get it? Simple, Double or Doux). It’s very cool but it will set you back around $3,500.00 and it needs to be shipped from Switzerland.
