This Bed Elevated My Room — and Came Together With No Hardware
When I moved into a new place last year, I set out to make it as “me” as possible. I was living alone for the first time in a long time, and I wanted to decorate intentionally — especially in the bedroom, which I wanted to feel extra supportive and grounding.
I knew of a few accent items — a shaggy area rug and soft linen sheets — I could use to start building up my new, cozy, organic aesthetic. But it wasn’t until I found The Bed that I knew I had the calming centerpiece to bring my new bedroom together. Made by Thuma and hand crafted from repurposed wood, this platform bed frame derives its elegance from its simplicity. And I’ve only appreciated it more with time.
The Bed hit the exact style tone I was going for: minimalist but warm, with soft curves and natural wood tones. But it doesn’t just look the part. It is elegant down to its very construction, which relies on Japanese joinery instead of nuts and bolts — meaning every piece is carved to slide snugly into place. That interlocking design minimizes noise and speaks to the quality of The Bed‘s craftsmanship, but I also love it as a visual effect — like a lovely butterfly joint on a classic table.
This joinery is also what makes The Bed so easy to assemble. It arrived in three packages that were manageable enough for me to tote upstairs, and I had it fully built in a few minutes. I opted for the warmer Walnut finish with a Light Linen PillowBoard, which slides into place between the frame and the wall. The Bed also comes in Natural, a blonde shade that lets the wood grain shine.
It’s been more than six months, and I still love the calmness this bed frame brings to my room. I’m also continually impressed by its quality. I’m the kind of shopper who researches
too much a lot so that whatever my purchase is — a bed, a car, even a coffee grinder — I won’t have to replace it for a long time. Because The Bed is made from solid wood and backed by a lifetime warranty, I trust I’ll be enjoying it for years. I also appreciate Thuma’s commitment to sustainability: They are GREENGUARD Gold certified and use repurposed rubber wood from trees that have already reached the end of their latex producing life-cycles.
Next, I have my eye on the The Nightstand, which applies Thuma’s minimalist style to bedside storage. It comes in matching upcycled wood options and features the same Japanese joinery — even the sliding drawer is hardware-free. And when it’s time to update my mattress, I’m checking out The Mattress — it’s made using the same sustainable methods as my favorite bed!
