Your bachelor pad deserves a better class of bed. We’ve gathered our favorites from Room and Board, Cassina and more.
Architecture $999, roomandboard.com
Instead of staid mahogany, this canopy bed is made of sturdy natural steel so it will stand the test of time. Plus it features a mattress platform made of steel slats, eliminating the need for a box spring or foundation.
Case Study Alpine $3,495, dwr.com
This curvy bed takes its cues from Los Angeles’s classic mid-century Case Study Houses. Its bent walnut frame is a study in structural integrity with legs, spars, headboard, and mattress supports (22 layers of laminated wood) all contributing to the overall strength.
Strand $1755, restorationhardware.com
A reflective headboard gives you the benefits of a mirrored ceiling without giving off any sleazy Niagra Falls/Poconos vibes. French Art Deco in style, its dark metal surrounds mirrored surfaces antiqued for a glamorously aged look.
Lorraine $2,150, potterybarn.com
Supple enough for a stay-over but rough enough that you won’t give the wrong impression regarding a potential move-in. The leather toughens up the library-like tufts but it’s generously padded, which has its benefits.
Sleepy Working Bed $4,500, cassina.com
Hef was known for working in bed, why shouldn’t you? Leave it to a Frenchman to navigate the line between nooners and notebooks: living legend Philippe Starck. The man behind rooms at Miami’s Delano and the Mondrian in Los Angeles combines form and function by adding side tables and lamps to his design.
Naidei $6,300, poltronafrau.com
Studio apartment’s need space but most sofa beds are about as cool as a case of the clap. Except this one. Porsche red, it becomes a cabana-like bed and then goes back again in seconds. A built-in tilting mechanism offers several different positions—up to a 90° maximum.
Lazy Night $4,300, bebitalia.com
Italian designer Patricia Urquiola’s bed headboard consists of two independent backrests softened by cushions that are supported by an elastic strap, making reading in bed that much easier.
