Q - Hi — My husband and I recently moved into our first condo and we are looking for the perfect king-sized bed. We have fallen in love with the Coconut Bed from CB2, but it is only available in queen. Our budget is around $1,500, but we may be willing to go slightly above if we find something great...
We love the Coconut Bed because it is a totally blank slate. It is modern without looking totally trendy (I mean, we love MCM, but I know we will get sick of it soon). Like the description says, this bed will last a while because we can completely change its surroundings (colors, nightstands, art) and it will still fit in. Also, our ceilings are only 8' high and this bed has the perfect proportions. It is low to the floor, but not so low that it feels like we're sleeping on the ground. And the headboard is also only approximately 40" high, so it will not make the ceilings feel low or crowd the room.
We considered the Wyatt Bed from Room & Board, but it is just too low to the ground. The headboard on the Ella Bed at Room & Board is too high. The headboard options at Crate & Barrel are all too high. We would also consider getting something custom made, but I think that will be too expensive in the NYC area unless you know of any good furniture makers. Any thoughts? Where can we shop? Thanks!!! Valerie
