Hello AT,

I'm searching for a queen-size bed frame with a headboard - and need to find one with the smallest footprint possible. The Case Study bed is the smallest I have found. Modernica offers one with wooden legs, while DWR only has metal legs. Here's my dilemma: I much prefer the look of all wood, but I can't find anyplace in NYC that sells the Modernica bed and I'm leery of making such a major purchase without seeing one for myself...

(I've been able to see the DWR Case Study at a DWR showroom.) Has anyone seen the Modernica bed with the wooden legs? Does anyone know of a store in NYC that sells that bed? Or, does anyone have any other suggestions for a bed frame with a footprint that is - like the Case Study - around 60x80 (give or take only an inch - 63 X 83 is too big!).

I'd be grateful for any input...

Thanks, Lorca

Dear Lorca,

It's a shame that Modernica left NYC (even if folks weren't happy with their service), but we'd vouch for this bed. We really like the all wood as well and think this is a great bed design.

Go for it.

Anyone else?
