At A Glance: With a low-profile design and upholstered headboard, footboard and side rails, the Gardiner Bed from Gus Modern adds a smoothly modern touch to any bedroom. Named after an elevated thoroughfare in downtown Toronto, the Gus Modern Gardiner Bed utilizes a supportive mattress suspension system that eliminates the need for a box spring.
What's To Like:
The bed's upholstery is a nice change of pace from the norm, and thin piping on the seams adds a beautiful contrast.
One of the difficulties that comes along with some platform beds is that mattresses can't "breathe" as well - that's why box springs are so helpful. Gus Modern has built the box spring into the Gardiner Bed, preserving the low look, and we love the idea.
Upholstery on the frame keeps you from bruising yourself on the side boards like you would with exposed wood frame beds.
What's Not to Like: You'll have to clean the upholstery periodically. If you're OK with that, we think this upholstered bed is a great choice.
The Bottom Line: We've been won over. The Gardiner Bed from Gus Modern is a win, both stylistically and functionally. The piping is killer; the suspension system clinches it.
