AT reader Nicole was recently inspired by the decor at the Standard Hotel in downtown LA... While staying at the ultra modern Standard Hotel in downtown L.A., I fell in love with the platform bed in my room. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find one like it anywhere. I liked how it was carpeted (though softer carpet would have been nice) and extra wide so you could step or sit onto the platform. Anyone know where I can find something like this? Hi Nicole, The platform bed at the Standard is actually just a carpeted riser platform, and surprisingly easy to make (or surprisingly affordable to contract out if you're not handy). In case you do want to do it yourself, here's a tutorial on how to make one. P.S. Because the tutorial is geared towards home theaters, it includes an additional level; so you can nix the 2nd frame part. Unless you want a two-step platform... Anyone else have a solution for Nicole?
