Each year, a gorgeous and intriguing array of creative new bed designs are trotted out alongside the tried and true favourites. Sometimes, these are new takes on stand-by classics, and sometimes, they are simply trends. The true gems among these, however, are genuinely innovative. They’re accessible to only a few until the radical new designs trickle down to bargain producers, but anyone who sees them is impressed. With that, here are a few of the creative and trendy beds for this season:
It is easy to find discount luxury furniture once you know where to look and know what type of dream bed you want. Rare and antique styles will be found on auction sites and markets, or if you’re looking for a more luxury or stylish piece, then high street shops will be a good place to start.
A platform bed calls for the mattress to be set directly on the bed itself, the platform. These are usually solid; although, they can sometimes have slats and specifically do not require a box spring. This lack of a box spring usually results in the bed is low to the ground, giving it a hip vibe. The platform bed originated in ancient Egypt as a decorated bed of royalty, but today, it graces city apartments.
The canopy bed is another classic being given new life. The traditional dainty, floral metalwork of the canopy is frequently complemented now by modern minimalist sensibilities. This type of bed is recognisably modern, but calls back to a simpler time, giving it a quaint, relaxing feel.
During the hedonistic 1970s in America, the circular spinning bed rose to temporary prominence among the rich and famous. Today, the concept of a circular bed is being taken to new and truly innovative heights. The egg bed is a notable example. Rocking bed frames have also taken the furniture world by storm. Their frame is composed of two vertical circles which the bed bisects. This allows owners to rock the bed as well as use it at a few different angles. It also makes for an absolutely striking visual and an interesting call back to the electronic spinning circular mattresses of the 70s, reflecting a very different design philosophy.
Free Form Branch Creations
In days gone by, people fashioned their bed out of strong hardwoods to shape the sturdy and beautiful material into their own design. Odysseus made his bed with a tree so heavy it could not be lifted from his house, but it is rare in human history that people appreciated the branches’ natural designs as much as we do today. It used to be a sign of wealth, opulence and skill to craft branches into designs that come from the human imagination, but today we find joy in the natural, striking, one-of-a-kind patterns of the branches themselves. Cutting-edge designers are taking natural branches, coating them in protective resin and fitting them together like a free-form, functional puzzle to create some of the most luxurious beds in production.
