At A Glance:
The Nook Bed takes what could have been an ordinary platform bed and throws some pizzazz on it. Platform, check. Padded frame, check. Sturdy upholstered headboard? Double check. The Nook Bed's headboard flows seamlessly into its frame, with two angled extensions of the headboard providing both strength and visual intrigue. It's enough to make you want to leave the lights on.
Nook is available in twin, full, queen, and king size versions.
What's To Like:
It's a small thing, but the padded upholstery on the Nook Bed's frame is a nice touch, protecting you from discomfort as you get out of bed in the morning.
What's Not to Like:
If you have pets that shed, you'll find yourself vacuuming the Nook Bed's frame to remove hair. That isn't such a bad thing, since you ought to do that periodically anyways. With any bed, you'll either have to dust or vacuum. Pick your poison.
The Bottom Line:
The Nook Bed by Blu Dot is a simple, quirky upholstered bed with just the right kind of style - the kind that makes you sit up and take notice.
