Not just the choice of colors or materials, but also of measurements and sizes. The design of new beds presented by the manufacturers wagers on maximum customization, to adapt to various needs and to encourage a personal approach to rest and relaxation. Workmanship, details, stitching are carefully studied to accentuate this ideal of “tailored” slumber.
The structure of the Coupé bed (on cover) designed by Gamfratesi for Poltrona Frau is rigorous and minimal, softened by the precious covering in Pelle Frau® on the entire surface. The precious stitching converges towards the leather headboard. The slender metal feet, with a gunmetal finish, add slimness and lightness to the structure made in spruce blockboard and poplar plywood, reinforced with structural elements in black coated steel sheet.
Lifesteel, designed by Antonio Citterio for Flexform, is raised off the floor by simple metal legs, available in a range of finishes, and stands out for its refined bedframe covered in cowhide. The entirely removable covering of the headboard can be made in fabric or leather, and features grosgrain profiles, ton-sur-ton or in a contrasting color.
The central feature of Stripes, designed by ferriani.sbolgi for Enuit21, is the headboard composed of three horizontal cushions, held in a central band of fabric or leather. A detail taken from the world of fashion that brings out the softness of the cushions and defines their silhouette. The Stripes bed is an appealing and extremely versatile product for its colors and materials, also in the structure composed of metal tubing.
The Lullaby bed by Palomba+Serafini for Lema represents the arrival point of extensive experience on textile workmanship, especially in the saddle stitching. The true innovation of the project has to do with the design of the bedframe, a light, intentionally airy form of discreet visual impact. The decorative stitching, in continuity with the headboard, completes the harmonious personality.
The Vibe bed designed by Carlo Colombo for Giorgetti is based on 1930s design and stands out for the large upholstered headboard, covered in fabric or leather and featuring a leather band that determines the profile, like a passepartout that frames a work of art. With its compact depth, the headboard can be disassembled and has a completely removable cover. At the two sides, the visible metal feet extend to house a circular top in marble or canaletto walnut, functioning as a bedside unit.
Twiggy Bed by Rodolfo Dordoni for Minotti combines an image from the 1970s with the refinement of elegant upholstery, overlaying the rigorous volumes of the sommier and headboard on the base in brushed or Black Coffee coated aluminium. The headboard, available in two heights, is entirely covered in fabric or leather, and enhanced by stitching that demonstrates the know-how of the brand. The sommier echoes the couture aesthetic of the headboard and guarantees high-quality sleep, thanks to the presence of a remarkable number of pocket springs.
The Ovidio bed by Vincent Van Duysen for Molteni&C is a combination of elegance and maximum comfort, where no details have been left to chance and the leading role is played by the headboard, available in leather or fabric. A section of burnished metal, with rounded corners, discreetly forms the structure. The façade is enhanced by diamond stitching running vertically. Available in three sizes, 160, 180, King Size, for maximum flexibility in space.
The Venus bed is the latest project created by the R+D division of Twils. The initial idea was to obtain a headboard with a frame inside which it is possible to place one or more panels, produced with different solutions. This idea makes it possible to radically modify the image of the bed over time. Two variants are available: ‘Venus lab’ (in the photo) with a double panel in the queen-size version, and ‘Venus clou’ with a single panel (double size). In both cases, the panels have completely removable covers, like the entire structure of the bed. The storage box can be mounted on the bedframe.
Noctis mixes the colors of nature in a new guise, underlining its importance for the brand. One of the versions in velvet of the Allan model has the color of faraway lands. The headboard and bedframe are covered in turmeric yellow and made in soft foam combined with wadding. On the side of the headboard there is an ‘envelope’ closure with loops covered in the same fabric, emphasizing the sartorial quality.
Giorgio Ragazzini designs the elegant yet versatile Lift bed for Altrenotti. Lift finds its key to interpretation in the playful headboard: developed with ample padding, it is divided into a double cushioning, which can be manually lifted, raised or folded, so as to accommodate the multiple levels of comfort of its user. A detail that follows the contemporary vision of the bed, increasingly a place intended for rest as much as work, conviviality, and relaxation at all hours.
An outstanding icon in the latest Versace Home collection, the La Medusa line mixes fresh, modern design with tailor-made quality, where the stitches become precious details. The bed is covered in fabric or leather, with the application of the 3D metal Medusa logo in a shiny gold finish.
