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.

“Keep it simple. Unadorned, uninterrupted dark wenge boxes in a refined platform retreat. Double-layered headboard is quiet in detail. Solid ash edges take life’s hard knocks. Clean on a spare gleam of matte silver.”
• Platform frame with center support rail, 12 slats and 3 cross rails
• For use with a mattress only
• 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
• Made in Denmark

Dwelledition Talon Bedding

I’m all for historical designs reinterpreted for our current design needs (or wants)…so, I’m shameless in promoting all well done interpretations, even if they’re a little higher than my budget allows.

“Dwelledition is a series of limited edition styles that represent the latest in dwell’s evolving design direction. dwelledition designs are as timeless with the luxury and quality that comes with 320 thread count, 100% combed, Egyptian cotton bedding. For the debut of dwelledition, dwell reinterprets old world details and historical European motifs into something current and modern. Talon, the first of two styles in this collection, was inspired by vintage Italian wallpaper. It features architectural details blown up to an iconic scale.”

Available in ink on manilla
Bedskirt is available in ink

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).

Logo Sofa

Do I need to say that this looks way better than anything that falls under the category of “futon”? I think I probably don’t, but just in case, if you’re thinking about a sit/sleep double action sofa, I recommend serious consideration of this particular sofa. It looks good.

“The compact, Dutch-designed Logo Sleep Sofa rests lightly on chrome-plated steel sleigh legs, with crossbar support for added strength. The Sofa opens easily through a three-staged durable ratchet mechanism for either reclining or sleeping. The Sofa sleeps two, and is upholstered in a soft heathered wool (two-toned charcoal and light grey or red and tomato) that suits almost any environment. Made in Denmark.”

Available in Charcoal/Light Grey or Red Tomato.

A little fancier than ikea.

The drawers have metal drawer pulls and ball-bearing drawer glides. Complete assembly required.

ducduc PJ Armoire

While perusing Design Public’s site, I was pleased to run across this armoire. As you can see from the picture, it’s white with gray chalkboard doors, and has a lacquered white interior with orange shelves and drawer fronts. It’s quite simple yet impressive because of the nice orange insides and, of course, the ever-changing-up-to-you-art-on-the-doors. Those details count, you know. Mulitple shelves are included as well as an optional hang bar, and, if you’d rather go the hide-the-tv route, it’s got that nice feature of wire management so you can put your electronics inside.

Dimensions (inches): 47 W 50 H 20 D
Materials: 100 percent hardwood, non-VOC lacquered paint.
Made in the USA.

MAX SF: Montgomery Queen Bed

This bed is pretty hot. We’ve seen our fair share of platform beds (haven’t you?) and this one is pure class. It’s modern with a bit of Asian flair, and if that’s not enough for you, you’ve got several different leather colors and few wood finishes to customize this bed to your specifications. I think if I saw this in somebody’s home, I’d think “do they own a hotel?”- cause it looks a lot more expensive than it is.
