Zen Platform Bed

If there is one room in your house where Zen furniture fits perfectly, it is in the bedroom.  This Japanese-inspired “less is more” look has quickly caught on in Western cultures as a way to create a restful retreat.  If your aim is to make your bedroom a space that immediately gives you a sense of quiet relaxation and calm, this Zen Platform Bed makes a great foundation piece to get you started.

The classic simplicity of a Zen Platform Bed, combined with low-profile, minimalist furnishings and soft earth tones, inspires a sense of harmony with nature.  Much of Japanese décor is based upon the pure Zen aesthetic of harmony, which creates a sense of stillness and repose.  The beauty of Zen furniture is that it was designed to blend with nature rather than confronting it.

Zen furnishings have evolved over the centuries to become more contemporary, but they still share an appealing simplicity.  Traditional Japanese beds were made from Tatami straw mats, which were layered with cotton padding and blankets.  This basic concept is what originally inspired the platform bed, resulting in a whole collection of modern designs that fit nicely into today’s home environment.

A perennial “best seller”, this Zen Platform Bed is crafted from solid Asian Hardwood, and comes with a matching headboard.  Available in rich dark walnut, warm honey oak or black finishes, and full, queen or king sizes, the bed’s frame is 8” high, or 31” with the headboard.   With its strong Asian influences, this Zen Platform Bed will bring the special qualities of harmony, beauty and simplicity to your bedroom, making it an “oasis of calm”.
