The Soho Bed, for instance, features a solid wood headboard, tall and wide and square. But the headboard is also a bit unmoored from the bed frame. It appears to be floating - an undeniably modern twist on a solid early American staple. The legs of the Soho Bed are tapered but still fairly thick, and the frame itself extends past the mattress, creating a footrest. It's available in a conventional lacquer finish or a water-based finish. Both set off the beauty of the dark Walnut and Maple the bed is built with.
The Astrid Bed (which is available in Queen, King or California King sizes) utilizes the same floating headboard (just not as tall and closer to the ground) and combines it with an innovative new way to fashion a base. The bed frame is mounted on extremely canted legs which angle into the center of the frame, seeming to disappear under the bed. The extend out past the edges of the frame itself, and the bed's overall appearance is low to the ground, simple, but fresh and contemporary as well. This bed is available in Cherry or Walnut, and is also available as a simple platform bed, with no headboard at all.
Many of the Copeland Furniture Beds available from Smart Furniture can be selected as storage beds - adapted to include storage compartments within the frame, beneath the mattress. It makes the frame of the bed a bit boxier and closer to the floor, but the work is still lovely and the extra storage can be invaluable in homes where storage space is scarce.
