Leggero Six Drawer Dresser

What I really like about this storage is that because it is low profile, it doesn’t give a weighty feel to a room, but it still really provides a lot of storage. If you had an armoir in the same space the room would feel smaller. But because this is so low, it really has a neutral effect.

Also, it would work really well in any room: bedroom, office, livingroom, etc.

Made in Italy.

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 Usually their product lines have those gross atomic legs or “funky” pieces that already look outdated and cheap.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. The deck is constructed of wood slats woven together with nylon strips for a combination of assured suppleness and enduring strength. ”

Ovangkol veneer or wenge-stained oak veneer; MDF; aluminum.

Track Quilt and Pillowcases

It’s often hard to find bedding for the modern-ish home. There’s just so much out there, and honestly, there’s also a whole lot of patterns that just don’t make me very happy. But this does. Simple stripes paired with bright(ish) colors give punch without going overboard on pattern.

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.”

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
