For an ultra modern bedroom, try looking at an old Asian aesthetic; the platform bed has been around for a very long time, but amazingly the clean lines and unpretentious style fit in perfectly with all things contemporary.
Platform beds today are usually flanked with swanky low-level bedside units, composed of a single storage drawer or a floating shelf. For those not in the know, the Japanese platform bed typically doesn’t require a box spring, your mattress simply sits on top of slats or a solid base.
With the bordering edge standing proud of the sleep zone, these beds appear grand yet retain a simplicity; pleasing on the eye, though not always great against the shins in the scramble from light switch to duvet!
I had a difficult job sourcing a platform bed for my own bedroom here in the UK, most designs seem to be from the USA – though in the end my bed came from a French company.
As the size of the bed is extended slightly by a border, anyone in the market for a new bunk may shy away from this design if their room is of small proportions, but the low height and simple profile of these pieces create a feeling of space around them, so don’t be too quick to write off the idea of a chic Zen sleeping place.
When you wake, your feet won’t have far to go as this beautiful design parallels a few inches above the floor.
