Best Storage Beds 2008: From High to Low – Email from 4.11.08
I am not a huge fan of underbed storage and generally believe that allowing the space underneath where you sleep to breathe and be free of clutter is a good thing, BUT necessity sometimes dictates using the space. When you do, you want to use it well and you want it enclosed to keep out the Dust Bunnies. Here, then, is my BEST OF list for 2008.
Flou Storage Beds – These guys hit the ball out of the park, with 24 storage beds, most of which use their awesome hydraulic lift.
Zanotta Night Bed by Carlo Columbo – Very Italian and clean with a similar hydraulic lift to Flou
Box Bed by Emaf Progetti – Another Italian confection with an even cleaner look from Unica Home
Matera Bed by Sean Yoo – This is a lovely all wood frame design that features clean drawers on either side
The Anderson Ultimate Bed – This is a niche killer on storage. Taking away the need for a dresser, the bed comes with so many options that allow you to fill the base with easy-pull drawers on both sides and on the end, as well as adding clip-on side tables.
Modulicious Storage bed by Blu Dot – Full of storage and customizable, these allow you can choose from three wood finishes and seven enamel colors for the drawers.
Knickerbocker Storage Bed from WONK – From the Brooklyn based WONK, comes a very well priced option with all customizable finish and hardware.
MANDAL Bed with Storage from IKEA – At $300, this is another great well designed, low cost solution from the Swedish Giant.
Simple Maple Bed with Storag Drawers – If you like stripped down, simple and green, this is a great option. These Pacific Rim beds are VERY GOOD: “Each piece is hand-rubbed with a finish of tung oil and pure beeswax to highlight the natural beauty of this distinctive Maple hardwood. They are free of toxic glues, formaldehyde and particle board and considered environmentally safe for your children’s bedroom and nursery.”
Locker Bed from PB Teen – This is a fun, locker style approach that will probably appeal to the younger set.
West Elm’s Storage Bed – Clean good looks and basic styling, make this a good entry level choice.
