Japanese Style Beds

The popularity of the futon in the eighties and nineties awoke people’s attention to the minimalism of Japanese style. We associate Japanese style with clean lines, no clutter, simplicity and low level seating and sleeping. The first wooden bed we designed was the Kumo, a low bed that took it’s name from a Japanese word for cloud. The Kumo and the related Kyoto and Kobe remain among our most popular wooden beds and over the years we’ve developed a whole collection of beds that are perfect for a Japanese style bedroom.
