The Floating Platform Bed – Great Looks, Amazing Design

The Floating Platform Bed – Great Looks, Amazing Design

"Summer in the world;
floating on the waves
of the lake."
         ~ Matsuo Bashō

There are a lot of advantages to the platform bed design over traditional beds. Many of our platform beds use a solid wood slat system that supports the mattress and eliminates the need for a box spring. This allows air to circulate up through the slats and sets up a circulating air exchange in the mattress. This cuts down on allergens, dust mites and mold which creates a healthier sleeping environment. Other platform beds use a flat piece of wood for the mattress support, again eliminating the foundation or box spring requirement. Another advantage is that the platform style of construction allows for a more modern, simple, and low profile look, making the furniture the center of attention instead of the natural latex mattress.

This is done not by sleight of hand or a Las Vegas magic trick but by placing the bed frame on a recessed pedestal base or recessed leg structure. This provides plenty of stability for the bed, equal to or greater than a traditional bed frame. When combined with a contemporary design theme, and a low profile bed frame and headboard the overall look is appealing and helps create a clean uncluttered appearance.
