LA Good Questions: The Standard Hotel Platform Bed?

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?
