While Floor 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, floor 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 Floor Beds below for even more reasons to consider going low!
In bedrooms that feature large format artwork, a floor bed stays out of the way. But this one still makes a subtle but tasteful impression with the luxurious layering of dark wood and plush fabric.
Very modern and chic! This floor bed platform includes drawers beneath, ideal for anyone who doesn’t want to give up their storage space.

The Frank Nightstand comes directly out of a surreal world, a dream, taking on a variety of luxurious finishes. This exclusive nightstand features some of Boca do Lobo’s finest veneers, and design details, and in a unique clash of aesthetics and tones, maintains practicality, making it perfect to keep some of your most personal belongings.
Capturing the beauty and timelessness charm of the forest, the prominent Frank pays homage to Frank Lloyd Wright’s Falling Water. The luminous textures of the exotic woods, metallic leaves, lacquers, glass, and mirror are interwoven into rhythmically cascading drawers.
Lighting works its magic on the interesting typographical installation behind this bed as well. This is one of the floor beds highlighted so far, practically fully flush with the floor itself.

One thing you might notice about these floor beds is all the room they leave for visual decoration that reaches toward the ceiling. A grand tall bed might overwhelm beautiful details like these.
Here’s another floor bed, this time in an even taller room, using a large form print instead of a headboard to draw the eye toward a central point. The oversized pendant light fills in even more of the negative space above. The bedroom chair completes the look.
Who would want to obscure such dramatic and detailed plasterwork? The soft headboard portion of this bed doubles as a backrest without covering up too much of the impressive artwork.
