A thin stencil creates a four poster harking back to Japanese-style, futon dreaming. A little thicker but still to the floor, this king poster bed relaxes a room of minimal features. A higher frame hangs geometric Chinese lanterns and a smaller, fabric-made bed. Using distressed materials adds an industrial feel, exacerbated as steel hover lamps peek through the sides of the frame.
While low beds are famously associated with Japanese design, they‘re beginning to catch on in modern design circles - and for those whose knees can handle them, low beds have several benefits. First, starting the day with a deep stretch and mild workout can get the blood pumping to fight off grogginess, and the cool temperature near the floor is a major plus for hot sleepers. Some small bedrooms can gain a sense of spaciousness from a low-profile look. And if storage isn‘t a concern, removing empty space means one less place for dust to settle. Check out the inspirational beds below for even more reasons to consider going low!
