Good Questions: Best Tatami Bed Source?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Hello AT,

My husband-to-be and I want to furnish our love nest with a tatami-mat platform bed and a Japanese futon mattress, like this one from We can’t find such a thing in stores near us, so we’ll have to order one off the internet.

Thanks! Kristy
