The perfect bed is an investment in your health and happiness. With the possible exception of your office chair, it’s the single piece of furniture on which you spend the most time, at (in theory, at least) a solid eight hours per day. Comfort and support lead to a deeper, more refreshing sleep that leaves you energized and clear-headed. So if you don’t already love the bed you’re in, you owe yourself an upgrade!
Secret, from Canadian manufacturer Trica, is one of our bestselling beds, and with good reason — this is one versatile piece! Its styling balances masculine and feminine elements, pairing gentle curves in the headboard with strong lines in the footboard and side rails. The headboard cover is available in a wide variety of fabrics and leathers, allowing you to personalize the Secret any way you choose, and the solid wood bed frame is also available in many different colors, attractively offset by metal accents at the corners.
Plank, designed by Joel Dupras for Canadian brand Huppé, is constructed from North American birch, which can be showcased in the dramatic wide headboard. Although it looks raw, the silky finish is smooth enough not to damage delicate bedding. If wood simply isn’t your style, Plank is also available in a range of lacquers, fabrics and leathers.
Elan is a powerful piece of contemporary bedroom furniture. Its headboard is adorned with asymmetrical, geometric tiles influenced by De Stijl, against a dark wood bed frame. Elan is available in ten fabric or leather finishes.
Legendary product designer Karim Rashid is the mind behind Kosy, a futuristic-looking bed created in collaboration with Huppé. The leather-covered headboard curves forward, creating a pleasant sense of enclosure at the head of the bed. You’ll feel like you’re in a world of your own.
Designed by Rick Lee for American Leather, the striking Menlo Park bed is already a classic. The perfectly proportioned headboard swoops into the base, which almost appears to float on thin and unobtrusive legs. Menlo Park is available in several sizes and can be specified in leather, fabric or Ultrasuede.
Wave is an attractive mid century modern bed, available on its own or as part of a set from Vermont’s Copeland Furniture. The headboard features a fascinating three-dimensional wave pattern carved into the wood. Copeland’s strong environmental credentials, plus Wave’s GREENGUARD certified low-emission finish, mean you’ll sleep even easier.
