Oslo and Wheel Platform Beds

While I know not everyone would need or want wheels on their bed (or a futon mattress, for that matter), these two platform beds are super simple, and not out of the pricing ballpark.

Moddi Murphy Bed

Murphy Beds are great for multi-purpose rooms and space saving. But they’re a little expensive and can be pretty ugly. Over at Moddi Murphy Beds you can buy instructions for how to make your own with parts totaling less than $275. The best part about it is that since it’s DIY, you can select your own outer finish or wood type.

Elemento Bed

The Elemento Bed’s headboard slopes slightly back for reading, and also comes with a removable slipcover for easy cleaning.

I really like how the design of the legs are an extension of the bed itself and not just slapped on there.

Float Bed

It’s hard to come by a modern bed that hits under the $1G mark, and this one is surprisingly stylish. If I didn’t know the price, I would guess it to be at least twice as much.

“…our Float Bed elevates your sleeping hours to stylish new heights thanks to a raised platform and sleek, elegant lines. Designed to deliver hours of soporific comfort, the Float Bed accommodates most queen-size mattresses in a versatile wenge finish that never tires of mixing and matching.”

Atoll corner sofa with double wall bed.

This is a great piece which allows for a hidden murphy bed and a great sofa all in one unit. It comes from across the pond, so if you really want it be prepared to pay a pretty penny.

Atlantico: 011 Bed in Cherry

This is a straightforward approach to a bed design, with all the essential planar elements, enhanced by the beauty of solid wood. The headboard features the intriguing grain patterns created both by the horizontal lamination of planks and the varied grain of the timber. Cherry has a naturally red color that enhances its inherent desirability for use in furniture making. A highly prized hardwood, Atlantico’s American Cherry is sourced from sustainable forests where the timber is pruned regularly for consistent, strong and beautiful planks of the highest quality. Headboard, footboard, side beams and central support beam (used on wider beds only) all manufactured from solid planks of American Cherry. Slats that support the mattress manufactured from solid American Basswood.

I went to the new CB2 opening in Manhattan the other day and was pleased to get to see this close up. It’s well constructed and generously proportioned.

Padded and upholstered head to toe (even the side rails) in pure white all-cotton canvas pre-treated with a protective stain-resistant finish… Benchmade in the USA with the same quality and attention to detail as our upholstered sofas. Kiln-dried hardwood and wood composite frame.”
