Black Oak Kulu – Modern Platform Bed


Less is more – the simple sculptural design of the low Kulu platform wooden bed makes the most of the solid oak and  the modern combination of a natural finish with elements stained almost matte black. The Kulu is a fine minimal design for a Japanese style bedroom. It also has a relatively low headboard height, which makes it particularly suitable to a loft space. It’s shown here in solid Oak in various colour-ways.

The Black Oak Kulu is available in the following variations:
Option 1 – Solid oak – all stained black (bed base, headboard and side tables)
Option 2 – Solid oak – the base and headboard are stained black with oak side tables in a natural finish (see the third image in the gallery)
Option 3 – Solid oak – the base and tables are in natural oak, the oak headboard is stained black (see the main image above)

The fixed side tables make a handy space for your bedtime reading or an alarm clock. Each fixed side-table measures 24 x 35cm. The price includes a pair.

This bed is currently unavailable, we hope to bring this design back to our collection in the future.



The Black Oak Kulu is a modern platform bed in solid oak with the option to stain various elements with a soft, almost matte black lacquer. The entire bed can have a black finish for a very contemporary look, alternatively leave the fixed bedside table platforms in the natural oak finish to draw attention to this detail. We also love the option which has a natural oak base and tables, but with the headboard element stained black. The choice is yours!

Natural Lacquer Finish:
Our ‘natural’ lacquer finish, named for its clarity, allows you to appreciate the myriad colours and subtle variations in tone of natural timber. It retains a subtle, soft sheen which protects the timber from grease marks and some stains.

We introduced our natural lacquer finish 3 years ago. It is still possible to order your furniture with the original ‘clear’ finish used previously- please call us to discuss your options when matching new Natural Bed Company furniture to older pieces.

All our platform wooden beds are fitted with sprung beech slats for extra comfort and to increase the life of your mattress.
This bed is supplied ready for simple self assembly, you can read the assembly instructions here.
