The Semplice Bed–now on sale.

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.”

Sapporo Shelving, One High

It’s so nice to know there is modular furniture out there that can grow and change according to your needs. This system can be changed depending on how high or tall or wide you’d like it, simply by adding or taking away an individual unit. The photo shown here is one unit with a steel base (the doors are sold separately), but you could afford to buy this now as a tv stand (for example) and then add on later to make a bookcase. The back is completely finished as well, so you could also use it as a room divider if you went with buying a taller unit.

“The Sapporo Shelving System by Jesús Gasca combines the elegant minimalism of Japanese design with Spain’s technically refined modernism to produce a system of case goods that meets a multiplicity of needs in a gracious and flexible format…”
