Beds

Clip Bed by Patricia Urquiola

“This padded double bed has a unique design. The headboard continues the entire length of the bed to the footboard and folds back on itself to trace a highly original form resembling a paperclip. The headboard can adopt different inclinations. The bed can take all kinds of mattresses, with thicknesses varying from 6.5 cm to 17.5 cm, thanks to the adjustable support system. The fully removable covers can be chosen from a wide range of fabrics or leather. The proposal is completed with a side table, a lacquered structure.”

Hivemindesign – Rune Bed

I certainly don’t want to overwhelm you with a price tag (be forewarned), but this might be worth the investment if you’re wishing for a bed that’s unlike anything else out there. Quite impressive.

“The Rune Bed creates a dialogue between the geometry of the form, with an implied cube that reflects its ornamentation into itself.”

Solid Poplar.

92l x 72w x 90h (inches) queen size

This sleek felt bed would make a nice place to lay one’s weary head.

“The Dodu bed takes a modern and minimalist approach to a good nights sleep. Low and sleek, this bed does not require a box spring. Made of woven felt over a padded wooden frame, french seams and a 13″ thick headboard. Available in queen size only and your choice of three colors. Aqua, grey or wheat.

Domain King Bed in Tetris

This bed looks like an expensive Italian bed that retails around $8,000. But besides that, it’s a great minimal piece that would make any modernist proud.

Elemento Bed

Not sure why we haven’t posted this before (maybe because it has a 2 before the comma in the price tag) but it sure has a pretty enough picture. Platform beds are the thing to have nowadays, so jump on the bandwagon and update your bedroom (if you can afford it).

“This upholstered platform bed combines fabric and metal in a sleek profile, which stands on a highly original base of chromed iron rod. Fully finished on all sides with soft padding everywhere, including the platform that extends 2″ from the mattress. The padded headboard is gently sloped to create a comfortable backrest for reading.”

Semplice Platform Bed

Of the best well constructed platform beds out there, this has got to be the most cost effective.

“Tino Novati’s Semplice Bed is our newest modern bed that meets the growing desire for utility, comfort and aesthetic refinement. Veneered in either wenge-stained oak or in Ovangkol, a West African hardwood with a moderately course grain, the rich colors of this bed coordinates with a variety of other woods. All sides are finished and the frame stands 12″ off the ground, higher than many platform beds, for a visually bolder profile. The recessed legs each have a metal plate at the bottom to further the floating look that’s become a trademark of Novati’s designs. The deck is constructed of wood slats woven together with nylon strips for a combination of assured suppleness and enduring strength. Compatible with our Sonno mattresses.”

Nest Bed

It’s rare that “contemporary” furniture stores do modern correctly. Usually their product lines have those gross atomic legs or “funky” pieces that already look outdated and cheap. But I think this bedroom set is pretty on-target and inexpensive to boot. I like the nightstands too! Only $199!

Semplice Bed

If you’ve been looking for a simple platform bed, but haven’t fell in love with anything yet, take a second look at this one. It has excellent proportions (just the right amount of thickness around the edges) and a lovely semi-subtle grain. I’ve got a hunch it might be of better quality than some of the other platform beds in the same price range kicking around out there…

“Veneered in either wenge-stained oak or in Ovangkol, a West African hardwood with a moderately course grain, the rich colors of this bed coordinates with a variety of other woods. All sides are finished and the frame stands 12″ off the ground, higher than many platform beds, for a visually bolder profile. The recessed legs each have a metal plate at the bottom to further the floating look that’s become a trademark of Novati’s designs.

Sale: Alu Headboard

Unheard-of pricing for the Alu Headboard. I could afford this.

The upholstered headboard is usually $700 but the orange & red versions are only $299. The headboards tilt back from 0° to 30° to 45° for reading or watching tv. The headboard is actually slip covered so that gives those of you non-orange lovers an opportunity to buy it on the cheap while maintaining the option to take it to your local tailor to have it made in a different color.
