An intersection of vintage styling and modern simplicity occured in the design process of the Case Study line of beds from Modernica. We have always liked them because of this mix. They wouldn't be out of place in a full-on "temple to mid-c" home, but they don't look kitchsy. They are staightforward modern - clean lined and simple, but not boring or boxy. We like their lightness.
The Case Study Bent Wood Leg Bed (Single $1190. - Cal. King 1845.)
The Case Study Fastback Bed (Full $1550. - Cal. King 1795.)
These three styles provide a range of heights and stains to best suit your space and accompanying furniture. The daybeds from the line are great looking too - perfect seating for small spaces.
Available in Chicago at Modernica, 555 Franklin St. (312.222.1808) and online.
