Q: I just bought an alcove studio in the West Village and I am trying to find a queen-sized bed with a headboard (probably upholstered in a warm/neutral tan/beige color, maybe with some minimal decor or maybe a rattan/bamboo or leather) and a base that has storage in it.

The Door Store had a great one but was in a dark leather — too heavy and masculine for my apartment. West Elm has some nice knock-offs of headboards but not with any storage underneath. Also loved one I saw from Donghia but very expensive. I have seen one made by Knossos furniture, which is reviewed pretty negatively on your site, but it was just wood and didn't have a headboard and the wood was exposed so wouldn't match a different headboard.

The alcove is pretty small so every inch counts. I'm thinking maybe of mounting a headboard on the wall above the mattress to save a few inches. Finding a headboard seems easier. Finding a bed/base with storage to match it seems harder. Any advice is much appreciated!
