LAX Series Storage Platform Bed without Headboard
by Mash Studios
At a Glance
Storage beds aren't usually known for their debonair looks. Typically associated with children's furniture, they've carried the association of being childish or adolescent. All of those conventions, however, are thrown to the wind with the gorgeous LAX Series Platform Bed.
This minimalist piece of furniture stands at the intersection of awesome looks and helpful utility, attractiveness and usefulness. Ideal for modern spaces like condos and lofts, this bed removes the need for a chest of drawers, allowing for a subdued minimal design aesthetic. The 8 drawers can hold plenty of clothes or blankets. The solid wood provides organic and natural wood grains that stand in stark contrast to the bed's angular frame. This bed has it all: good looks, practicality, and a hearty construction that will last for years.
This solid wood bed from Mash Studios works great on its own, but you can always combine it with the Queen Size Headboard or King Size Headboard for a more complete look. The two pieces are also sold as a set here.
- Modern condos or lofts
- Contemporary homes
- Spare and smaller bedrooms
The Bottom Line:
You'll be hard pressed to find a more beautifully crafted, modern bed than the LAX Storage Platform Bed. Not only is it gorgeously simple, it also provides tons of utility. For designers who believe that less is more, this bed offers new, unique possibilities because of its integrated storage. The Japanese-inspired simplicity combines with some of the most beautiful walnut woods available to create a truly unique and stunning piece of furniure.

Cleaning and Care
For simple cleaning, use a damp cloth with a mild detergent. Over time, you may want to refinish the surface with a refinishing agent to regain its original luster. For this we recommend Scott's Liquid Gold. Pour a small amount onto a rag and wipe the entire surface until you have an even finish. Do not pour the cleaner directly onto the furniture as this can result in an uneven coat or discolor the wood.
If your furniture develops stains like a watermark from a glass, use 220 grit sandpaper and lightly sand the wood until the stain dissapears. For best results, follow this with a treatment of Linseed Oil to refinish the surface to its original quality.
Try to keep the piece out of direct sunlight if possible. It is wood's natural property to darken over time when exposed to sunlight, so if an object is left on your LAX furniture and left in the sun for a long time, the covered surface will appear lighter once the object is moved. This light spot will take time to blend back into the surrounding area and may never be fully as dark. Also, don't put hot stuff like pots and pans directly on the wood.
