The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. It’s the room we spend the most time in. It’s where we recharge, reconnect with our partners, reflect and recuperate. We owe it to ourselves to create intimate sanctuaries that resonate with who we are, but also embody the tranquility we’re searching for. If you’re looking to create a peaceful bedroom, the Japanese platform bed is the perfect piece of furniture that will set this tone.
The Japanese platform bed’s clean lines lend it a look of beauty and simplicity. It differs from other platform beds in that the Japanese platform bed does not require the use of a box spring mattress and typically does not use head or footboards. They sit close to the ground on four posts, an unpretentious design that evokes an old world Asian aesthetic. The mattress simply sits atop surrounded by a stunning wood edge. Japanese aesthetics are deeply influenced by the beauty of the natural world and you’ll see this in the platform bed: the wood grain and knots embellished and emphasized, paying homage to the trees and the natural world from which they are created.
Japanese platform beds are perfect for small rooms too, its low height and simple profile doesn’t overwhelm a space. Its elegantly simple design helps create a zen calm, but not at the price of modern style. If you’re looking to create a serene sleeping space that is sophisticated the Japanese platform bed is for you.
