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.”

Slipcover is removable.

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 Usually their product lines have those gross atomic legs or “funky” pieces that already look outdated and cheap.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.

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.

Itbed mattress and futon

This is a pretty smart design, and it would certainly impress your guests…Imagine pulling it out of the closet, setting it down, adjusting, and then saying, “Ta-da!”. I think I wouldn’t mind it as an everyday bed either, as it has a casual/edgy look about it.

“The itbed is made from 7 mm thick cardboard that is folded like an accordion. In one step the itbed can be collapsed into an easily portable bundle making the cardboard bed an ideal solution for guest beds or frequent movers. The zigzag profile of the itbed, reminiscent of a house of cards, is stabilized from head to foot by two lengths of webbing…The itbed is available in two models. itbed futon is made for futons or thinner roll-up mattresses and comes with an extra horizontal support that is also collapsible. This particular model is especially useful as a guest bed. itbed mattress is made for use with more traditional mattresses and is thus suitable for every day use.”

bisect bed

If you’re looking for an inexpensive bed that doesn’t require box-springs, have I got a deal for you. It’s a wenge wood finish, which is nice for those of you with ultra dark furniture. Alternatively, this may be a good DIY project for adding a thin veneer of real walnut or teak.

• Platform frame with center support rail, 12 slats and 3 cross rails

• Ash veneer over engineered wood frame
• Solid ash wood edge-banding
• Wenge stain and UV-resistant clear lacquer
• Steel legs with matte silver powder-coat

Tate Bed

This might be the perfect bed. Low to the ground with button tufting, it’s just the right amount of style without pretense (clean lines/mid-century mondern styling will win my heart every time).
