The Oscar bed by Matthew Hilton strikes a pleasing balance between modernity and tradition, large in size yet light in appearance. The bed is made from a European hardwood frame covered with a mix of latex, natural fibres, wool & recycled wool and features two slatted mattress bases. The feet are made from walnut stained beech, with the front two being turned versions. By contrasting long straight lines with delicate natural curves, Hilton has created a piece that is both reserved and full of humility. Oscar is a piece perfect for those who like their modernity laced with a little familiarity.
Pepperland is a metal panel available in 2 different sizes and 9 different lacquer finishes. It is perfect as a bedhead or even as a noticeboard. It comes with a variety of magnetised accessories/stickers. Very original and cool design, the light and table that can be attached and another design dimension.
Impunto is a cool bed from Pianca whose main feature is the randomly placed buttoned headboard. The base is a valance style in the same material as the headboard. Sleek Italian design at its best. Available in many sizes, fabrics and with storage it is truly a flexible and practical bed.
Loop is made from sectional iron,a surplus material from industrial production. The bed was originally designed for and produced by the Copenhagen furniture store LLLP in the late 1980’s but was added to the HAY collection in 2003. Loop underscores the HAY philosophy of creating elementary and functional quality furniture covering basic human needs, sleeping eating and making love. With its strict and uncomplicated design the bed has gained high popularity in its hometown acquiring the nick name The Copenhagener bed. The Loop bed is so simple and cool, perfect for creating that Scandinavian look.
George Nelson V-Leg Case Study Bed
A benchmark for superior craftsmanship, The Case Study Bed® adheres to the highest standards of workmanship and genuine materials. Designed by Modernica Studios and built by Modernica’s master builders, this bed is the perfect definition of form follows function.
The superstructure of the bed and the headboard are built with a solid one-and-a-half-inch thick laminated hardwood. And each bed is engineered and built with six, rather than the standard four-legs. These additional legs add a remarkable overall-strength and sturdiness to the bed, which makes for a peaceful nights sleep. The mattress sits directly on the platform which is built with two zinc-plated perforated steel inserts. These perforated inserts allow the mattress to breathe naturally ― thus eliminating the need for a standard conventional box spring. The Case Study Bed is engineered to provide a lifetime of outstanding durability, while maintaining a modern, elegant look for your home.
A good guide to getting a good nights sleep is available from the Sleep Council of Great Britian, check it out when you buy your next bed.
