Experience the essence of Japanese simplicity and design harmony with the Raku Tatami Platform Bed. Achieve an authentic and pristine sleeping experience by combining it with Tatami Mats and a Shiki Futon.

The Raku Tatami Platform Bed stands out as an environmentally friendly choice, surpassing many other furniture products available today. Crafted from solid Parawood, also known as Rubberwood, this bed is free from particle board or MDF, minimizing its environmental impact. Furthermore, Parawood is sustainably sourced from plantations, ensuring responsible harvesting practices when the Rubberwood has reached the end of its productive sap-producing life.

To preserve the integrity of the wood and prevent cracking or warping, the Raku bed features solid Parawood finger joints and a protective inert lacquer finish. While the finger joints add a distinct aesthetic to lighter natural and honey oak finishes, they blend into a more uniform appearance with the dark walnut finish.

Assembling the Raku bed is effortless due to its clever slot-locking system, which securely joins the corners together. The minimal use of hardware contributes to the bed's simplicity, sturdiness, and ease of assembly and disassembly. For added strength and stability, the center support rail(s) utilize steel bolts to fasten the middle legs and the rails of the bed frame. This provides a robust foundation for the solid wood slats, accommodating both mattresses and Tatami mats.

Maximize the eco-friendly qualities of the Raku bed by incorporating Tatami mats, which can replace traditional box springs (mats sold separately). Western-style mattresses, ranging from 7 to 18 inches in thickness, can be placed directly on the slat deck of the Raku bed. However, for thinner and more flexible Eastern-style Shiki mats and futons, a solid surface is required to prevent sinking between the slats. Tatami mats are the ideal solution, perfectly fitting the Raku frame to create a level surface for these types of bedding.

Love our High Rise Raku Bed Frame

The bed frame arrived in 2 different shipments, a few days apart. It was packaged really well. We don't see any scratches or damage at all. The natural color looks great and love the "chunkiness" of the legs and frame. Very well made, sturdy, and simple to put together. Our "plug" for the center piece cover matches perfectly. We are very happy with it!!

High Quality Bed Frame Built to Last

We just moved into a new place from a 200 sq ft room, and don't own any furniture! I wanted a high quality, solid wood bed frame and headboard that was built to last for a lifetime, but I didn't have a huge budget. A high quality frame: is made of solid wood (not MDF or manufactured/engineered wood); has a center rail that attaches to the bed frame at head and foot and has at least 1 support foot to prevent sagging (the King bed has 2 center feet); slats spaced less than 3" apart; and utilizes wood joinery techniques instead of screws at the corners and headboard.

The pros: This bed has almost every attribute seen in the highest quality bedframes (except slat thickness). It is a beautiful, solid wood piece that looks right at home in our Japandi / hygge inspired bedroom. The height is fantastic and close to a western style bed height with our 10" mattress, making getting in and out easy in the morning. Our robotic vacuum fits nicely underneath and has no trouble cleaning that space. The frame fits together smoothly and was easy to assemble by myself. This feels like a high quality piece and looks much more expensive than it was!

The con: In the best bedframes, the support slats are thicker (0.75" instead of the 0.5" provided here) and run the entire width of the bed. Our King size came with 2 sets of twin slats, one for each side of the bed, meeting at the center rail.

((As an aside, the "buttons" at the end of the bed should match the staining on the bed; mine originally didn't as shown in one of the photos, but customer service reached out and sent me replacements! Looks great!))

Overall, this piece is a phenomenal buy for the price point, and is 1/3 the price of comparable quality bed frames. Absolutely love it! This bed is sure to last us for many happy years. Five stars.

You guys make it easy!

I just wanted to let you know that I received my Raku Tatami bed on Wednesday of this week. I also wanted to say that the call directly from Haiku to explain the process was quite unexpected. Your customer service should be applauded. I was also amazed at the EASE of assembly. I was excited to see the finished product so I put it together myself in about 20 minutes, most of which was spent unpacking the securely wrapped pieces. There was no damage to the product in shipping. This is the first time I have ever placed an order for a piece of furniture online. Having done so I would recommend Haiku to anyone wishing to purchase fashionable and unique furniture items of GREAT quality. Thanks again.

Second-time purchase

This is the second of the same model that we have purchased because we love this bed. I noticed that this second bed seems to be manufactured in an even more sturdy manner and therefore we wish to send well-deserved kudos to you folks. This Tatami mat bed frame is very subtle, tasteful, and well constructed. Thank you!
